Happy Birtday

This is what 100 looks like!

This amazing woman that is loving called Aunt Hartley turned 100 on the 24th day of January. She is the aunt of one of my best friends, Sandy Hill. This was such a special occasion that I just couldn't resist the opportunity to be a part of the celebration.

This is a collection of the family and friends who attended the party.

This is Sandy with her husband, Randy and their two children, Josh and Sara.

Sandy was helping Aunt Hartley open gifts and read all her birthday cards.

Such a lovely and sweet lady.

A New Year

Ron and I started this year off spending New Years with our grandson Eli, and of course Nikki and Josh. This has become a tradition for us in order to let Mom and Dad have a night out on New Years Eve. We love spending time with Eli and any excuse or opportunity is immediately accepted.

(This is his CHEESE face.)

January was also our first trip to Arizona. Ron had always wanted to go to the Barrett-Jackson Car Auction in Phoenix so that was part of his Christmas gift. It was such an experience and we hope to have many more.

While we were in Arizona, we got to visit with one of Nikki's college roommates. Lauriann invited us to spend the afternoon with her and Taylor. We went to tour Old Tucson Studios which is out in the desert. It was the film set for several movies and TV westerns (i.e. High Chapparel, Little House on the Prarie, Hondo). They also had a carousel which Taylor wanted to ride.

We also got to drive into the Red Rock Mountains of Sedona. Such an unbelievable sight. They are appropriately named. Here are a few of my favorite pics.

I hope this isn't too much info. I still have lots to learn about posting but hopefully I will get better and have many more stories to share.

Blog challenged!!!
Well, here I am trying to keep up with technology.
Hopefully I can do as good at blogging as all the others I have read.
Slygo isn't as exciting as other areas but for two retirees,
we seem to be very busy and life is better than it's ever been.
