What a weekend in Vegas...

So, as you know, I don't always have a lot of positive things to say about AZ... but a nice thing about living here is that long distance travel takes you to other states pretty quickly!!

Brian, Adam and I drove down to Las Vegas (Henderson actually) late on Friday night to help his mom finish up packing before she moved back to Portland, OR on Saturday afternoon. It just so happened that a bunch of B & A's college friends were in town for their Spring Break and I have just recently gotten back in touch with family, so after Sara left for Oregon, we had plenty to do to keep us busy.

On Sunday, I went to church with my Aunt Linda and her husband Mike. Then the whole family met over at Caren & Jay's house for a fabulous lunch before B, A & I headed back to Tucson.
On the way back we drove through Needles, CA (which someone thought would shave off some time... it doesn't just in case you were wondering), got stuck in lots of traffic because of a yucky accident, and because I was trying to make up time, I got pulled over for speeding through some small little town. The highway speed limit was 65, I was going 64, the town apparently is 45... oh well.

So, here are some pictures from this weekend.

St. Patricks Day & the Blue Angels

So, it has been over a month since I have even looked at my blog. Everything has been fine.... I still am not overly excited about living in Tucson but I do really enjoy my job. It has been such a blessing to continue learning so many new things. I am now producing the live morning show for our Phoenix market and within the next few months we should be taking the program live over the whole state of Arizona... that is pretty cool!

Saturday afternoon Brian, Adam and I went to the Air Force base and watched the air show. It was really neat to see all of the planes and watch the Blue Angels. It is fascinating to see what all these planes can do!

The pictures do not do the show justice at all! They were so fast and so loud! Later that evening, we met up with Brian's cousin and a bunch of his friends. I spent the rest of the night watching a lot of stupid people get drunk on green beer, wearing clothes they SHOULD NOT have been wearing. Then Brian, Adam, myself (and anyone that was sitting at our table) did a lot of laughing at the people we were surrounded by.

On Sunday afternoon (man I wished I have pictures for this...) B, A & I went to a driving range and hit golf balls. It was so much fun... I have never done this before, Brian is pretty good and Adam is very good... so lots of laughs and lots of coaching! :) It has been nice getting to enjoy the sun and warmth in the afternoons but we are all anticipating the excruciatingly hot summer that is to come if it is already getting into the mid 90's.

That's all I've got for now!
