The Grand Canyon, Route 66 & Gold King Mine.

I'm sitting here licking my wounds with a bowl of ice cream and apple dumplings.  Thank you Pioneer Woman for the most killer recipe.
Did you know lemon trees have thorns?  I've been picking and packing away today and you'd think after my thirteen year relationship with that tree, I'd learn to wear gloves!  But no.  Instead my determined head-strong Irish brain thinks I'm infallible this time and plows ahead at my task at hand.  Let me just state publicly that next time I will wear gloves....really....that is of course if I can still remember where I stashed them.  Hmmmmm. 

So I thought I'd post a special treat for y'all this evening.  My sweet husband travels the state of Arizona for his job, and recently he's been taking along our camera.  (Just FYI--the man needs to step-off and get his own equipment) Ha-ha.  Anywho, Mike came up with the fabulous idea to start a website and blog (hmmmm) to feature his photography hobby.  I've always joked with Mike that he is Mr. Arizona history, but he really does see our beautiful state in an appreciative, respectful and unique way.  I really enjoyed his first couple posts and I thought I'd share.  Hope you enjoy as well!

  1. Love the photos. It would be hard to tell what year they were from. Were the dumplings hard to make? They look delicious.

  2. Kristin, the dumplings were dangerously easy! We all gobbled them up! I made them with green apples. I thought the tart apple tasted so good with the sweet sauce & ice cream!

    And Casey, that is such a compliment coming from you! I'll be sure to share with Mike. He knows how amazing your skills are as I show him your stuff all of the time ;-)
