I'm Back...

We had a quick spring break trip that was rather rushed, but lots of fun nonetheless...

We enjoyed our time around Phoenix, Arizona.

The saguaros were so fascinating ~ I kept taking photos as each one is so unique.

Springtime in the desert is lovely ~ as all is in bloom...

The colors were lovely.

We stopped by the Casa Grande Ruins.

Iwasn't sure what to expect, but knew that if it is a National Monument it was something that we shouldn't miss.

It was definitely worth the ride.

And the ride there and back was a great opportunity to view the landscape.

Of course the real reason we were there was for:

The Baseball!
Three games in three days at three different ballparks. Cheering for the Cubs, of course, and even enjoying a Cubs vs. White Sox game. The Cubs won two games and tied one.

It was a great opportunity to get up close and personal.
Closer that we can usually get at Wrigley Field.

And the opportunities for photos and autographs were fun, too.

I'm probably the only person who would pack a wool project to take to the desert, but airplane delays and cool evenings helped me come home with a finish :)

Maggie Bonanomi's
"Never Enough Hearts"
Country Sampler club kit 2010

The quick escape was just what the family needed.
It was definitely worth the craziness of trying to catch up the rest of the week.

I'm almost done with two projects I'm trying to finish in time for Easter. Hopefully I'll be back soon with a peek.
Wishing you a thoughtful Holy Week.
Blessings, Patti
