We just returned today from the latest visit, at which my wife's sister and her family were also present. We had a great time visiting family and enjoying the outdoors. Each morning began with a hike in the Santa Catalina foothills. Each evening ended with family dinners together.
We returned at dawn this morning, with memories of warm family times, a huge garden model train with redwood trestles, incredible sunsets, enterprising hummingbirds, oceans of saguaro, and
the kindest ranger/volunteer in the national parks system. I am four pounds lighter, not counting the lightness of heart.
