Winding up in Surprise, Arizona was quite the surprise to us! It wasn’t a part of our original plan to see the West Coast, but with it being so cold and wet on the northern end of our travels, we really needed a place to dry out. What better place than the desert?
We did a lot outside the park as well. We hung out at White Tank Mountain Regional Park where we found a cactus I named Treehugger, and where we hiked the Mesquite Trail; a pretty good climb, with nice views.
We visited with friends in town who taught us another fun card game, “Pony Tail”, and we went to Tucson for a weekend to see my bff from grade school and meet her new hubby. They took us to San Xavier del Bac Mission one morning. What a beautiful building! I cannot believe I forgot to bring my camera that weekend!
From the state park, we headed further north to the edge of the Colorado Plateau. I wasn’t expecting to see snow beneath my feet this winter, but it was fun and it was great to see all the parents out there sliding with their children.
Since we’ve accomplished our mission to dry out, we’ve moved on to a new place, lush with green grass
and beautiful flowers blooming everywhere. And there’s a lot of golf going on here! We’re not golfers yet, but we bought starter clubs at a garage sale in Surprise. Between the greens right here in the park, and my parents nearby willing to teach us, we’re bound to learn something. Can’t wait to tell you all about it next time! Take care. We love you and miss you lots!
