Some Photos

I am really bad about uploading the photos from my camera to my computer. It takes me a while to get around to it. Now that I finally did it I realized that I forgot to post about our trip downtown to the Public Market at the end of February.

First we went to breakfast at District at the Sheraton. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet, with everything from sausage, bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, french toast, biscuits and gravy, steel cut oats, cold cereals, granola, fabulous fresh fruits and yogurt, and of course, breads and pastries.

We walked around the hotel afterward. (Looking down on the street from the... I don't know what to call it... Jay calls it the "Outdoor Pre-function Space," whatever that means. It's outside the ballroom.)
Then we walked down the street to the public market. It has grown quite a bit just since we were there in October. It's doing well and getting bigger all the time. (On the way back from the market.)Then we walked around The Arizona Center, which is across the street from the Sheraton. It's always fun to walk around there because the outdoor areas are very nice. And it will always be sentimental for me and Jay because on one of our first dates we sat on one of the benches there and talked for a long time. Just talked.
And here are a couple of other photos that were on my camera. Did I mention how much Mary loves the roller skates she got for Christmas? She wears them as often as she can.... even while doing her chores. She would wear them to school if she could.Last week I went to lunch with my mom and my two older sisters for one of their birthdays. That is also my niece in the front. And no, I'm not in this photo.... that's just my sister who could be my twin but she's not.


  1. I love that Mary is wearing her skates while she cleans. That girl has got style!

  2. That makes me miss my mom and sisters. Yo are so lucky to live near your family.

    Thank you so much for coming to Karen's baptism. That really meant a lot to all of us.

  3. It looks like such a lovely community to live in.

    A little off you like your Oreck? I bought one last year (because I am the Vaccum Slayer. You may have heard of me, no vac lives longer than 18 months in my house, and I began to feel bad about all the dead vacuums I've sent to the landfill...I'm digressing). I've been incredibly underwhelmed. I wonder if I was expecting too much from a $600 vacuum?

  4. Hi Mama Llama,

    I LOVE my Oreck! (Though I did not pay $600 for mine... I paid $300.) I have had it for about 9 years, I have never once had it serviced or repaired or replaced anything but the filter bag. It still works like a dream, even though my kids regularly vacuum up pebbles and vast quantities of sand from the playground, as well as tiny Lego pieces and such. I'm sorry you aren't having the same experience! Darn!
