Traveling over!

Well, I have to admit I really enjoyed all three trips (that is 3 weeks out of four!), but I'm totally happy being home doing laundry today!

trip one was to Southern California for our niece's wedding. It was fun to see all 7 cousins together...I'm bad..no pictures







trip two was to my husbands 30th college reunion. Our daughter was the back up flyby for the football game. We didnt' get to see her fly..they didn't need her. (family joke: she has been flying about 6 yrs ...counting her soaring in college...and I have never gotten to see her fly. This trip was no exception!) She was, however, a total surprise for her dad. He had NO idea she would be there. He had fun showing her off to all his college buds. He also introduced her to her big boss's big boss. Fun to watch her eyes that wide! lolol Driving back to the airport in Denver not so fun for me....I don't ride in snow very well! Wimpy AZ girl!


Here is the AFA mascot falcon. They fly them before the game and then go up into the stands to let the fans see them. Beautiful bird!













trip three to the central CA coast with husband's high school friends. Too much food and a BIT too much football (did I ADMIT that??? Julie...don't spill the beans!) We had a wonderful time as always. I got a side trip to Susan Branch's shop in Arroyo Grande. I wish she would come decorate for me!My friend and I got to do a bit of shopping the last morning. Our husbands were SO happy we had each other so they could sit and visit. hehehehehe. Little do they know that when we shop together...we shop LONGER than if they came with us! Lets keep that our little secret, shall we???
Look what I snagged:





I did have a couple of humbling experiences! I broke my toe the night before the Colorado trip. (how in the HECK I broke that one and not either of the toes on both sides I will NEVER know!) Hobbling thru airports on your own with a broken toe gives you a WHOLE new outlook!



And to round it all out, trying to get to the parking shuttle when we arrived home, I tangled up with my suitcase and took a tumble. Scraped up my knee pretty well, but when my PRIDE stopped smarting, I really didn't hurt myself too badly. I have two things to say: #1 I wont' be doing much kneeling on that knee for a week or so...and #2 My middle name is NOT Grace!

I'll be back on later to post the 2 gift quilts I delivered last weekend....
