Grandma and Grandpa's Visit

Just a few things we did while Grandma and Grandpa where here... Grandma helped (well, did most of) the gardening.  She tackled three years worth of pruning and filled up I don't even know how many large black trash bags with dead branches.  (I promise Sylvia at least has underwear on in this picture.  If it was up to her she would be gardening in the nude.)

Grandpa planned and built the roof of our carport.  (Why it was off in the first place is a whole other long story.)

Unfortunately Joey was so sick that weekend and later commented that it was a blow to his ego to have to watch a seventy year old man surpass him at carport roof building.

Grandma helping set up the school room.

Sylvia painting in the school room (which is separate from the main house...I love it.)

Hazel finding a match.

We got two kitties.  A little brother and sister that let Hazel drag them around.  They are such good kitties.

Ever since we moved to Tucson I've wanted to walk through the rattle snake bridge.  While grandma was here we did it!

Being digested.

When you walk by the tail you hear a rattle sound!

After learning about the Moors, we had a Moorish style feast with Islamic music and incense.

Shirts were optional.

Joey and Isabel went on a Daddy Daughter date for her Activity Days group.  I hear they are quite the athletes in a wheelbarrow race.

Mike O'Callaghan - Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge

On the way to Saint George, Utah, we stopped and walked across the Mike O'Callaghan - Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.

DAM Great view of the Hoover Dam.

The new bridge is great for us who travel through this way.  Before the bridge there was always a lot of tourist traffic at the dam.


Pat Tillman was an American football player who enlisted in the army and was killed by "friendly fire."
