We were looking for something new and different to do, and I think we found it.
SARA, Southern Arizona Rocket Association, had its annual rocket launch open to the public. As indicated on the picture, this place is in the middle of nowhere!
This was an all weekend event, but we were
intrigued by the dusk til 9 launchings.
They started with the small ones (1 to 2 feet,
then progressed to the bigger ones.
Next year, we will: dress warmer, bring
chairs, and maybe even a picnic dinner!

Eric, April, Tyler and Will drove all the way from MN to see us! So exciting! The first morning Tyler was sitting at the kitchen table, and he said "there goes a cat!" We know of only one neighborhood cat, so we looked out the window, and it was a BOB cat! This is the first one we have seen like this since we moved in...talk about "cue the wildlife"!
Darrell had tickets to the local garden model railroad show, so we drove around to some of the homes to see the best ones.
No cameras allowed in the caverns, so.....the boys enjoyed the caves, as did the adults. On our way back, we stopped at Pinnacle Peak for dinner, a ride on the train, and a good old fashioned shoot out on Main Street.
