Our good friend Aaron, and Josie"s daughter Cathy and her husband Scott all came in on Saturday March 22nd. It has been non stop fun since then. Aaron and I were at a baseball game within an hour of his arrival. We would have been there sooner but someone mistook his bag for theirs and left with it. Luckily they left their almost identical bag behind and he got his bag back after calling the number on that bag. We all went to the horse races on Sunday and Scott was the only winner for the day. We then went to Bobby Q's ,the best BBQ restaurant in Phoenix ,Scott and Cathy ordered the dinner for two and were treated to what would easily pass for a dinner for four. The take home bag was loaded.
Aaron and I went to four baseball games, and one hockey game. We birded for 4 days here in the Phoenix area and in Southeast Arizona. He picked up 9 life birds and I got 6. We traveled through all kinds of terrain as you can see from the pictures below. It is spring here in the desert and even though we have not had rain in a month the cacti are in full bloom.
Scott was in town on business so while he was in meetings the lady's looked at every piece of merchandise in the local Ross store and also worked on their tans by the pool. Scott was able to take off on Friday so he, Cathy and Josie went to old town Scottsdale and the Phoenix Botanical Gardens.
Our next stop is Lake Havasu for two weeks.
