Last week it was eight miles, this week we'll hit the double digits. Been awhile since I've done a double digit run. Last week it was also a high of 60+clouds, this weekend it'll be 90+sun! Crazy weather.James/Jimmy, came to visit for a couple days. He's never been to Phoenix, so that was fun for us! We went out to shoot our/(Ben's) new MP 1522. I have never shot anything like it, so it was intense. (James....remember your old blog?)
James was fascinated with the cact....i, too. They are awesome.
Brothers. Joe is younger (hitting the dirty 30 next month).
James loved anything Beatles related. He's on a Beatles kick. This is John Lennon's piano (below).
The drum below is from the 2008 Olympic opening ceremonies in China. There were a TON of these drums during the ceremony performance if anybody remembers. (James loves China. He's moving there for work, in May, until fall.)
Ben served his mission in Micronesia Guam, on a tiny island called Kosrae.
Creepy. . .
I wish you could have heard my amazing rendition of Jingle Bells...
It may appear that our photography skills are lacking, but really we just take music seriously (read: eyes closed).
Next things next, I took him to Old Town Scottsdale. He really liked it around there. "I feel like I'm at the beach! Well minus the ocean!" Haha. We ate at Ra Sushi for their happy hour.
Funny... James set up the camera across this pond, to take a timed shot. He had to run clear around the outside of the pond to get to me and barely made it. People were wondering what the commotion was when we were dying laughing. But SUCCESS!
The trip was short, but it was a blast!! Thanks for the visit, James. Hopefully you can come again soon!! (Mom, we missed you!)
Have a nice rest of the week! We are at 89 degrees today. Our average is "75" for this time of year, but I think I speak for all when I say the cold weather may finally be behind us!
PS. Elder Hales' blog is up to date with a ton of pictures. He's been out 5 weeks!
P.P.S. 5+ weeks to SLC. Not too late to do the 1/2, or at least the 5k.
P.P.P.S. Don't invest your time in a short sale. More on that later.
