Tucson and on to Maricopa

While we were in Tucson, we went to visit with Mac’s aunt Vernis. She is 93 this year and is getting around great! We had a nice long visit with her and promised to stop again next if we come back this way.


Mac and Aunt Vernis

Monday, we had decided to go to the Saguaro National Forest-West Loop. We stopped at the Visitor’s Center and looked around. We also watched a movie about the dessert. There were lots more Saguaros on this side than the ones we saw last year at the other one. These are amazing. Here are just a few photos that I took….





This is what a Saguaro looks like when it gets old and the cactus part falls off…







and our view on the way back to the RV…


After we got home, we started getting things packed up for our travel day to Maricopa, AZ to see our friends, John & Brenda Brown. We haven’t seen them since last winter in Yuma. We arrived about 1:30 and JB was outside waiting for us.





We got pulled in and after lots of hugs and a little visiting we got the RV set up for a couple of nights.

Brenda cooked a wonderful dinner for us…Steak, Twiced Baked Potato Casserole, Salad, Bread, and a wonderful Pecal Pie Cheesecake…OMG!  YUMMY!!!


Borrowed this photo from JB…

We visited for quite some time after dinner and then headed over to the RV to get some sleep.

Wednesday, we went in to Casa Grande where JB & Brenda took us to Eva’s for some Mexican food. It was very good!!



Of course we had to make a stop at WalMart….LOL

Since we had such a large lunch, Brenda made some Cheesy Corn Chowder for dinner with some of her homemade Buns and some Garlic Bread. This is something that I will make in the future. It was really good! For dessert we had a choice of the Pecan Pie Cheesecake or Lemon Gooey Butter CAke that I had made….or both!

We had a great evening visiting and making some plans in jello for them to come to Yuma and a trip to Algodones. All too soon it was time to head over to the rig and bed. We packed up things as we were going to Yuma on Thursday…..but that is another story….


Stay tuned….

Thanks for stopping by, and that Lemon Butter Gooey Cake was to die for.
