Yuma family party

Mark & Tricia held a family dinner on Sunday while we were in Yuma, and it was so great to see all their family.  We got to figuring up, and it had been about ten years since we had been to Yuma.  Way too long!  We loved every minute of the day with them.

Sports in Yuma

Had such a great time with the Ellsworth's.  Tricia showed us through the new high school where she teaches and supervises.  Tayler was practicing softball, but the coach wouldn't let us watch.  She conducts closed practices.  Afterwards, we went to dinner with Tricia, Tayler, Kaylin, and Tricia's friend Kathy.

On Saturday morning, Tayler played a scrimmage game.  She plays third base and catcher...and she's awesome.  After that game, we went with them to Phoenix to watch Kaylin play volleyball...a three hour drive!  Tricia coaches her team, and Tayler helped her.

Kaylin plays very well, and they won all three games they played.  We stopped on the way back to Yuma for dinner.  Our hotel messed up and instead of booking us for Friday- Sunday...they only put us down for Friday they called while we were in Phoenix...wondering why we hadn't taken our stuff out of the room.  When we got back about 1:30 AM, we couldn't get in with our keys.  Or into our room...even after they supposedly reset the keys.  It was a mess.  And the most expensive hotel of our whole trip.  Crazy.  I'm going to write an email to Fairfield Inns...

Yuma visit

Mark had the girls pick some grapefruit and oranges for us to bring home with us.  They were sooo good.  I don't really care that much for grapefruit, but when it's tree ripened, it was delicious.  I can't believe what a difference it makes.

Easter Wreath

Another dollar store décor for my challenge.  I loved how this one turned out, and it didn't even get blown away...but, the door did fall apart in one of the wind storms we've had lately.  Jeff tells me he's not sure we can even fix it.  Guess I'll have to beg Louie to come by and tell me how to do it.  Sure hate to lose it now!

St. Patrick's Day Wreath

One of the challenges for the retreat, was to use dollar store items to make home décor.  I purchased this clover (three leafs instead of four) and a Styrofoam wreath and made this to go on my door on the porch.

Valentine's Tea Towels

I made up a ton of tea towels from fabric that I had, so for Valentine's Day I made a tea towel for all the ladies of the family.  It was fun...
And that brings me to the end of my Valentine projects...I think.
