happy happy mother's day! we are home now, from our four day road trip. chuck and i were discussing, as we (he) drove the many long miles there and back, why do some trips feel as though you've been away many more days than you actually are? it must be the amount of activity or perhaps even more true, the emotion in those moments...
amazing cactus displays
next day, leaving tempe (still tears, is it ever easy to leave your children?)
and took another early morning hike
hee hee, good camouflage tiny toad
can you see chuck too? we climbed all over these rocks and through the canyon
we drove along watching this train for many miles, as it made its way forward, all along thinking about my young sons future and all it holds for him.
thank you husband for all you give me, and thank you for coming along, it is always such a pleasure.
