Alison's parents visit.

Last week my parents visited for a few days. One of the days they were here we went to the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. It was hot, but we had fun. Here is a few pictures . . .

There is a hummingbird in this picture.

On another day my parents and I spent hours putting up the fence in this picture. I now know I will never want to do that again. I bow down to those of you who do that for a living.

Research Paper

For my writing class I have to write a 20 page research paper. The paper is going to be written throughout the semester, so it shouldn't be too hard.  But by next week we have to turn in our topic for the paper.  It can be written on anything and I am drawing a huge blank.  I can't think of anything that I want to research enough to write a 20 page paper about. Does anybody have any ideas?  I will take any suggestions good or bad. :)

A day off!

Michael and I rarely have the day off together, but today was a great exception. We went to the local park, Lincoln Park and played Bocce and threw around a baseball.

Simon helped out with Bocce.

A blast from the past, Simon as a puppy. Wasn't he so cute, what happened? ;)

Catching FIre

There are very few books that once I start them I can't put them down.  Both books in this series have been like this for me.  I received Catching Fire in the mail yesterday morning and I finished it before I went to bed last night. I waited for this book and I was not disappointed. I don't want to give too much away for those people that still need to read Hunger Games, but I don't think that you would regret reading this series.

Away We Go

Michael and I just saw this movie and we both really liked it. Lately we have been trying to be better spenders so when we go to the movies we go to the cheap movie theaters. We went to the movies for $6.50.
