Fun Weekend

Yesterday was my great grandsons 5Th birthday, they just moved to this side of town so I was able to stop by and be home before dark. It was nice being with some of the family. Hamburgers n hot dogs on the grill and my daughter made her fantastic potato and macaroni salads. I brought my camp chair which is the best and most comfy for me. I hit some setting sun but it went behind the mountains fast so I did great.

Today Tracy and I went to Todd's for breakfast which is at Ryan Airfield. It is a lite plane airport. I was hoping to see a few planes past the windows run way but not today.

This little guy was taxing on a runway further away from us, but this was the view from our seats.

I'm not so sure about this home made gem looks kind of scary to me. But I don't like to fly anyway so it really doesn't matter

Out front of Todd's

After I was bound and determined we were going to do something. The weather was great it was warm but not hot. So we headed out for Saguaro West. When we got there the road was closed. I'm guessing it was washed out from the resent rains coming off the mountains. So headed back the same way we came and turned on to
Gates Pass Rd. Hadn't been there in a long time.

My daughter thought she was going to save this pretty thing from the ants but it was to late.

I took this with out any extra zoom 

This one is taken at full 50x

This is at the top of Gates Pass, it looked like a pitch fork to me so I zoomed in on it  I knew it was a saguaro but I liked it
Our next stop after driving down was the International Wildlife Museum. I think I will save that for tomorrow's post. So many pictures to post from the visit there.

Hope Everyone had a great weekend


  1. You've had a fun weekend. Spending time with family is the best.

  2. Yes seeing some family members that live clear on the other side of town is fun and they are such a sweet couple. And of course the little ones are always fun.

  3. Sounds that you have enjoyed your weekend good with your family. Times moves out fast when we are spending time with our family.

  4. Hi Weekend,

    Yes it is always nice to spend time with family

  5. Hi Phyllis,

    Yes it was a good day.

  6. I tried so hard to comment last night. I couldn't comment on Sandie's blog, either. I managed to read Rick's, then off it went. I gave up after writing and losing anything I wrote. The park wifi was a joke. I didn't want you to think I didn't read your blog. Looks like you did have a full day. Your pictures are beautiful, Jo. Glad you're enjoying yourself, as you always seemed to do. As always, pats to Fred.

  7. Hi Nancy,
    WiFi can be so tricky at times. I was going to finish posting about this place last night but just couldn't get into it. But it is good to see you hear thing morning. Fred is always happy for the extra pats.
