Oh it was a blissful trip to Tucson to visit my Mom and her hubby, Bob. I had not seen her in over a year (!) and my 'Mommy Meter' was very, very low so it was wonderful to reconnect and just simply spend time together. We all had a wonderful trip, and I am very thankful that my husband, mom, her husband, and I all genuinely get a long and enjoy each others company. We stayed away from doing the whole tourist thing, though did spend a day at the Desert Museum to see my mom living the dream as a Docent and also get a sneak peek 'behind the scenes' at the greenhouses that Bob volunteers at. Most days were spent talking and just 'being' together (although a few movies and a little shopping snuck in there too). We were having too much fun to take many pictures, though some are below.
