Trip is finally started!

First leg of trip was to Tucson, AZ, for my nephew, Dustin's, wedding on May 20, 2011. Beautiful! Love his new wife, Layla. The wedding was at Tanque Verde Ranch. The rehearsal dinner was held in the Cottonwood Grove. Delicious food...steaks, grilled corn on the cob, baked potatoes, salad, fruit, cobbler and more! We even had a herd of javelina join in the fun. Fire pits were set amongst the tables. Very cool and the fires were nice and warm. All the younger people had smores. Was great to see old friends and family.
The wedding was on the outside patio and was at sunset (close to it at least). Reception was inside with lots of great food and dancing. I even got to dance with the groom. Hope his toes are better now. They presented my mom with a little birthday cake...candles and all. She was so happy. She turned 89 on the wedding day. We were able to visit with her sister and brother-in-law in their home in the foothills the next day. That was so much fun.
Jim and I also visited the Desert Museum on the Saturday after the wedding. Drove thru the hills to the museum and walked through the sunny gardens there. Cloudless skies and brilliant sun but it wasn't hot...beautiful weather the entire time in Tucson.
My brother and his family drove to Tucson in their new Class C motorhome. I think they are ready for more traveling. Can't wait to camp with them soon.
We left Tucson on Sunday and headed to Joshua Tree National Park in California. Our GPS guide lead us straight thru the town center of Tucson. Definitely need to go back and spend more time there.
