Fun with Dottie, Chicky, John, Bob and Lindsay

We had so much fun having Dottie here in Arizona if only for 24 hours (way too short a time). Anway, after her grand surprise of showing up at my door to attend Sheri's baby shower and we all recovered from shock "Grin" John, Vickie and I met Bob and Lindsay for Mexican food. It was fun and they didn't even have to ask us to leave for being too loud "Grin". (Dottie...thank you so much for coming down to the made it extra special for Sheri Babe)

My Little Sister Chicky Vickie

I was just thinking that it will be nice when Chicky finally gets her internet up and running again. Even though she is here in Arizona and I can drop by and see her anytime or call...I still miss seeing her clever blogs and comments. I am going to keep a vigilant lookout for that first blog again soon...I know she really wants to get on her computer and say hi. Go Chicky.,..Post Chicky...Blog Chicky.

John and Our New BBQ - Way Too Funny!

Yes...we got a new BBQ and John decided to put it together inside the house "go figure" Grin!! He kind of looked like Steve when he was doing his taxes on Tami's post. Anyway...after a thousand nuts and bolts found their place (with a few were left over...hmm men should really read the instructions) it was finally put together. Now if it WILL ONLY FIT THROUGH THE BACK DOOR! Never fear...he did get it through and we had some really nice steaks for dinner. Yummy...hey...where is Kolton..he makes the best steaks EVER.

Gold Rush Days in Wickenburg - John and Ginger

We drove about 50 miles up to the town of Wickenburg for their Gold Rush Days. Kind of a tradition for this town every year. Look at John buying us each a sundae...yummy! We sat down and listened to a blue grass band while we ate them. It was as a fun day walking around the town, seeing all the vender tents, antique autos on display, lots of food, fun watching all the people. A sunshine R&R day for John and I. This whole week has been fun...we also went to the Renaissance Festival out in Apache Juntion...see John's blog for pictures of that fun day.

John among the antiques..which one is he????
