Trip to Arizona



Here are a few more photos from the trip...

Third performing the technically difficult *cannonball*!!!



FoUrTh as she popped up!


Pool for the boys and flexing the muscles of Second( anyone with boys understands that this is a common activity for teen males...muscles flexes!)


I love the southwest. Check this picture out. There are 3 different types of cacti all close together. Beautiful!!


We took several prickly pears(even though they grow near us) Third wants to make some jelly. We also are going to try and make some needles from the stickers. First we will rub them in a wax of sorts.


We went with little cash, but the trip was so fun. I love saguaro cactus, so we stopped along a dirt road and parked and enjoyed hiking and exploring. We found many rocks for my collection, and here is Bill standing next to one of the smaller saguaro's. Bill is 6'3".

Well I just noticed that this is my 200th post here. Hip hip hurray Jen has lots to say( as I meekly smile and say sorry:)
