Yesterday Mr. Yin and I drove up to Sedona to escape the 100 degree weather here in the valley and do some red rock hiking.

Actually, I drove and he took a jet-lagged induced nap.

I decided to take the according-to-Foders scenic route instead of the interstate. And I'm still trying to figure out how it was more scenic than the interstate route that we took home.

I give you exhibit A, SR 69, the "scenic" route:

And exhibit B, SR 179 the non-scenic route:

Our red rock hiking turned into red rock walking because we both managed to leave our sneakers at home. Though we both remembered socks!

The smartest thing we did before we left for 25 days was putting everything in our apartment in order.

We walked in yesterday and our house was perfectly clean!

not-so sunny California

I used to believe California was sunny and warm.

It's not.

(And still no pictures.)

Happy Mother's Day

I guess if you have a blog you're supposed to post something about moms.

I have one. She's the best mom.

I also have some pretty sweet grandmas.

But no pictures.

I'm in California. With no camera.

And that's why I haven't posted in a while.

But I will post again.

Maybe while I'm still in CA, maybe when I'm back in AZ.

Either way the sun is shining and that's a good thing.
