Arizona ...

I'm back from 5 very fun days in Arizona with Karen, Chris, Ruth and Sharon. Ruth has named us the Grand Canyon Girls Club (GCGC). We all planned to meet up at the airport, I was the last one to arrive .. about 20 minutes late .. which worked out for the best, cause I was in charge of Ruth at the airport. Ruthie is the only one of us without a cell phone and our gates were supposed to be close, so she was going to meet up with me first, then to baggage to meet up with Chris and Sharon.

When we were allowed to turn on our cell phones, I texted the girls to let them know I was there, since I was the one running late .. there was a song that had been going through my head for the last few days while I was getting ready to leave on Arizona .. when I texted to tell them I was there, I made reference to the song .. well it was the first reminder that I am the oldest of the GCGC's .. none of them knew what or who I was talking about! Here's the song .. am I really that old??!! lol

Her gate was no where near mine and she was glad she had 20 minutes to get lost and found again. Lots of hugs in baggage then off to rent the SUV and to our hotel. Karen was going to meet us when we got checked in.

Sharon and I were roommates the first two nights in Peoria. Chris and Ruth had the room next door. Here's a few pictures of the girls ...

After getting settled into our rooms and visiting for a bit, we headed for to Karen's house for dinner. We got to meet her family and enjoy a wonderful dinner of pulled pork sandwiches, potatoe salad, baked beans and a delicious dessert made by Aunt Cathy. We all meet Aunt Cathy 3 years ago at Pals Fall Fling. She's everyone's Aunt Cathy .. very fun lady to be around. After dinner we headed back to our hotel to stitch and of course laugh, which we did a lot of all vacation.
Karen surprised us all by designing a sweet little design to stitch up, and she kitted it up for us too with a piece of her coffee dyed fabric. We all had it stitch by the end of our vacation .. I think I'm going to make a pinkeep out of mine ... here's mine ...
everything was in the Chinese food container


I was going to have everyone sign it, but like with everything, we just ran out of time. Sharon is going to frame her's with a picture of the 5 of us .. hmmmm, that sounds like a lovely way to finish it. I might have to steal her idea :)

I think that's enough for one post .. I'm off to watch AI ... goooooo Danny!
I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for the Grand Canyon Girls Club ...

Well, I must be older than most of them as well then. I definitely remember that song, although I'm not sure I would have known the artist's name. It was a little frightening to me that I just picked right up and started singing along to the lyrics as I was watching the video. It makes me wonder just what else is tucked back in the deep dark crevices of my brain. LOL

That sounds like such a fun time. The piece that Karen designed to commemerate the occasion is perfect. Maybe one year I can join you. It would be nice to meet.

Sharon said...

Even being the baby of the goup I recognized the song when I heard it - just not by name or artist.

You forgot to mention who finished their piece first! LOL

Miss you!
Sharon
