Good visit

Got back from Tucson last night. Had a good weekend visit.
Got in late Friday night.
Saturday morning my grandma came over for chorizo breakfast. We had a nice visit. Then I headed to my grandpa's house to visit with him. We had some good chats and, of course, there were jokes. Now, if I can just remember them.
After visiting Grandpa I headed to Shelly's house to visit with her and her twin daughters, Hope and Jade, who are now 13 and going to high school next year!!!! We chatted a bit and then headed to Applebee's for appetizers and dessert. Applebee's has these little shooter desserts. They are yummy, cute and perfect size.
Then back to my mom's for some relaxing before she and Fred got home from church. So Cookie (yorkie) and I got some quality time together. That dog is a little nut! She is so cute but so hyper.
After Mom and Fred got home from church we headed to dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant. Yummy food as always.
Then back to their house to watch Lifetime movies. Fred was nice enough to go out and get me a Strawberry Eegee! Yum! I had the whole thing that night. (You can't go to Tucson and NOT have an Eegee drink.)
Sunday morning we had menudo. Mmmmmmyum! And also some Mexican pastries. Then we got ready and headed to Grandma's and then to Uncle Mike's for the family party to celebrate Grandma's 80th!
There was good food, good conversation, crazy conversation, yelling, beer drinking, lots of eating and present opening. We avoided politics because well, that would be bad to talk about. Most of my family is fairly liberal. But not everyone.
One of my aunts did ask me if Curt and I were coming back for a visit in the summer. I said, in the summer? NO! I told her I wasn't sure when we would be back. But they were welcome to visit us. (I get this fairly often from friends and family. When is Ann (& Curt) coming to visit? And they are usually asking when I am there visiting. Sheesh!)
And just a reminder, I am trying to scale back the trips because well, they cost money, people!!! For some reason everyone thinks we are rich--yea, we don't have kids and we don't have a house (that could change). Does everyone think we are rich? Or what do they think?
Remember what Erica said, Curt and I are great hosts (thanks Erica). We live in a really cool place. So come visit. Maybe I will start pestering people asking when they are gonna visit US???

Did you need an official testimonial? Will that help the situation? : )
