They came, we laughed till we cried, ate to much, smiled until my cheeks hurt, held hands, stayed up way to late and then just like that, they were gone. I knew the 5 days would fly by, but didn’t realize that in a blink of an eye it would be over. All I have know are pictures and memories to ponder back on.
I took my daughter to tea at the local farm stand, it was very good.
We went to the Yuma Territorial Prison, very interesting indeed.
I tried to lock her up so she would stay and not go home LOL
My son got here on Wednesday so we had the evening with him. He was exhausted from driving all day so my husband and I went to pick up the girls in San Diego on Thursday. Fun afternoon with them and then we all had the evening together. I have not laughed that hard in a long time. We all spent time in the desert, made it up to the skull again, fun to share our desert with the kids. My son and his girlfriend took off on his birthday, Friday morning after breakfast, to go exploring, they did the El Camino Diablo trail in one day, it was a great road he said, they made it to Sedona, to many people so they headed to the Grand Canyon and made it to the bottom and spent the night there. So his birthday was summed by him saying it was an “Epic Journey” , I am adding his stay with us as part of that LOL .
My daughter and I did the touristy stuff one day, a trip to the border wall so she could see and touch it and to a wonderful Mexican bakery, they have good ones in California to, but nice to see what Yuma has to offer. She loves museums and old churches, so we went to the Yuma territorial prison and did the tour, read all about the history. Then on Sunday she helped me try to find the best tacos in town. We had tacos at 3 places and that was all we could do. We told the waitress what we were doing so they went above and beyond the normal single taco, it was nice, but way to filling. Two out the three passed and I will go back, so that was most helpful. She also did a little shopping at a couple of stores that sell wonderful pottery from Mexico. She had to have a famous date shake and by then it was Sunday afternoon. Time to get organized and packed. Off to Phoenix airport at 5:30a. I know that her husband and cat, Oscar, were ready for her to come home.
My heart is full of joy and love for getting to have both of my kids here with us all together !! Bonus I will see them all again in a month.
Know that little whirlwind has passed, I am back to journaling and getting focused back on my own journey. I know that having company shouldn’t have made a difference in my journey. I did have one bad day, I had a date shake and ate some chocolate. I stayed true to my gluten free eating. I just had the sugar on those 2 occasions. So I am feeling good about that. I even made cinnamon rolls and never had a bite. They are resurfacing the pool so it is closed. Should be open in a couple weeks. To hot to go out walking, over 100 today, but I will go use the treadmill tomorrow at the gym.
Hope ole man winter has excited your part of the world……hello spring/summer !!
