I can hardly believe that the year is a quarter of the way over. Spring is almost over and summer will soon be upon us. Time for heat and humidity and much longer days. And I always look forward to those brief afternoon thunderstorms. I realize that only contributes more to the humidity but somehow I like watching those brief angry bursts of clouds.
May shouldn't be too busy for us, we have two events planned. I say that now and things always end up much more busy then I expect them to be. Why is that? My sister and I are organizing a family get together for my parents 30th anniversary. It's not going to be a huge blow out, just family time since everyone gets more and more busy as we get older. It's pretty sad but I have some family who live in town (more or less) that I haven't seen since Christmas.
Then for an extra long Memorial weekend we are flying to Arizona to visit my brother Jeff and his family. I'm looking forward to getting away for a little while and getting to spend time with all of them. They came home for Christmas but we didn't get to spend a lot of time with them. Now we get to go see them on their turf. The only times I have been to Arizona was just passing through on connecting flights to California. We will go to the grand canyon, even they haven't been yet. And it just so happens that our home baseball team will be playing there while we are visiting so everyone but Brandon is looking forward to that. Also they just moved into a house with an outdoor kitchen and a pool. Can anyone say Party!!!
