|AZ Cardinals - NFC Semi-finals|
If you know Tom then you know he's a die hard football fan. Me, not so much, but I have always said I'd like to go to a pro game. Tom's team, AZ Cardinals, made it to the play-offs and were playing at home in Phoenix so I said, "Let's Go!". Thank you Stub Hub for the reasonably priced tickets just hours before the game. We picked up my bother and nephew and headed out to a fantastic night of the best football ever! Unfortunately they didn't do so well in their next game but we still got to see an incredible game.
Tom and Jake enjoyed some male bonding time at a college basketball game at U of A. They headed to the court early and by doing so Tom had the chance to meet, and shake hands with, Bill Walton, Former ABC/ESPN/NBC Basketball Announcer, NBA All-Star Basketball Player, UCLA All-American, and one of the fifty greatest players in NBA.
It's been great being so close to Phoenix to have several opportunities to spend time with my brother and his family. In addition to the game, we visited Colossal Cave (his first time in a cave!) and Catalina State Park.

Girls Trip! Rita, Sandy and I headed out for a 3 day adventure to the Lake Havasu area. Sandy was a sweetheart and offered to go with us so that she could shuttle Rita and I to our kayak drop off and pick up points. Thank you, Sandy! We had a blast on our little girls outing and Rita and I had a fantastic kayak down the CO River through Topock Gorge - 15 miles of pure beauty and perfect weather!
