My post today is a bit overdue. I've gotten behind lately!
My baby brother came out to visit dad and I for ten days over the turkey day Holiday.
Here he is on a ladder....in shorts....with a beautiful blue Arizona sky in the background. Wonder what he's up to......besides the roof!
AHAAA....he's hanging Christmas lights with dad supervising! In six years of coming to Arizona for the winters, I've never had lights on the house, or inside for that matter! He even hung cup hooks on the rafter so that I will be able to put up lights every Christmas now. He is such a good brother and was determined that dad and I have some Christmas spirit since none of our family will be visiting then.
Have I mentioned how great I think my baby brother is? I'm so proud of him because he lost 90lbs this year! He is able to do things he's never done before.
Like climb Silly Mountain. I had so much fun exploring this little foothill of the Superstition Mountains with him.
We hiked at least a mile or more up hill and down. He loved it!
Horseback riding is something else he hasn't been able to do in a long time. He debated about going with me but decided that he should wait a few more months due to his back surgery this past summer.
So.....he stayed with dad and a friend and I got to go!
That's me in the big hat with my friend Lorraine doing one of our most favorite things....riding in the Mountains. It just doesn't get much better than this. I even got to ride one of my favorite horses at the stable, Mouse. He is extremely sure-footed going up and down all those rocky climbs.
So maybe when baby brother comes back to visit in March, he will get to ride too!
Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend!
