Mother Goose & Michi-Gander visit

Dan's parents have been visiting us for the last ten days. It's been wonderful spending time with them and catching up. Here's a run-down of a few of the things we've done.

  • Welcomed them to town with a dinner at Reilly's Pizza - wood-fired, gourmet pizza in a revamped funeral home. (You could never tell what it'd been it's past life.) DEEElicious!
  • Celebrated my birthday with a home-cooked meal.
  • Watched Lincoln on its opening weekend. EXCELLENT. You must go see the movie!
  • Took in our first opera. One of my students gifted me with 2-free tickets to La Traviata. It was a first for all of us - and maybe not a last for all of us.
Dan and I after the opera.

  • Enjoyed being treated to home-cooked meals and not doing dishes....
  • Treated Dean to some Papa Murphy's Take-and-Bake pizza.
  • Made 2 pies (pumpkin and pecan), green bean casserole, and Grandma's cranberry salad for our Thanksgiving feast at my aunt's.

  • Attended mass - 3 times this week.
  • Scrap-booked (finally got that wedding one started) and crafted for the girls.
  • Watched football (including atteding the UA-ASU game) for the guys.
  • Checked out breakfast at Frank's - always a treat to enjoy good breakfast on a patio in November.
Good ol' Franks by Day; Francisco's at Night. I got to have 1 banana and 1 chocolate chip pankcake - delish combo!

  • Visited the Tucson Botanical Gardens. Definitely worth many happy returns.

Michi-Gander and Mother Goose are enjoying the balmy "fall" weather!

Whew! Tomorrow, they're on the road to California for a few days...and we're going to relax. :)
Some of us have already started relaxing....
