Today our beautiful daughter, Rachel, turned 31. We are not sure how it happened so fast; it seems like only yesterday we were celebrating her 1st Birthday.
Happy Birthday, Rachel!
|This is one of my favorite pictures of her and her
daughter. We were having some family pictures
taken and the photographer captured
this special mother/daughter moment.
Today, was one of those...lets not do anything days. We spent quite a bit of the morning just sitting out, enjoying the view, and drinking our morning coffee. A little while later I did run into Quartzsite to purchase some beads, mail out a small package and pick up some water. While I was gone Tom finished setting up outside; putting our rug under the chairs, setting up the table, grill, etc... When I got back we just sat outside, still enjoying our view, and there may have been "Happy Hour".
|Before the sun came up over the mountains and peeked through the clouds
the first light of the morning was beautiful.
|We have little yellow and white flowers all around us on the desert floor.
|Our patio view.
|The sun slipping behind the mountains to the west
|and lighting the mountains to our east.
|We had another show of color to end a wonderful lazy day.
