3/13/2010 - Spending the day and evening with Lynn & Dick in Wickenburg, AZ

We checked out of the Days Inn in Prescott Valley this morning ate breakfast and headed towards Wickenburg to spend the day with Lynn and Dick. We had a very beautiful drive to Wickenburg and arrived at Lynn and Dick's between 10:30 and 11:00 on Saturday morning. We sat and visited with Lynn and Dick and then had a delicious lunch with homemade soup, dip, crackers, and sandwiches.

We then went and got our hiking shoes on and the 4 of us went hiking in the desert (right behind their home). We ended up going on a 8 1/2 mile hike in the desert - up and down hills and the desert was very green for this area due to the rain that Wickenburg has had this spring. It was a wonderful hike and a great visit with Lynn & Dick.

Once we were done with the hike John and I got on our bike and biked to the Safeway grocery store and picked up a few items. While we were gone Lynn made chicken and dumplings with peas and asparagus. It was a delicous meal and so good to have another home cooked meal.

Once dishes were done we played Spinner and then Phase 10 and then off to bed. John and I are planning on getting up early and having breakfast and then heading to Surprise, AZ to spend the day with Dana and Bill Brown. We had such a wonderful time with Lynn and Dick and look forward to them coming to Wisconsin this summer. When we were in Wickenburg several years ago Lynn had me pick a rock from the desert and she said she would paint a picture of Lake Pleasant on it. Well, she had it done and gave it to me and she did such a great job painting it.

I called home today and got to talk with Crystal and ended up leaving the rest of the kids a voice mail. I have really enjoyed the emails that I have received from the kids since we left home.

Happy Trails!
