Celebrating my 35th birthday in Tucson

After a breakfast of raspberry-chocolate chip pancakes, bacon and eggs, we headed to the park to run with the dogs...


Well, okay, my sister and the boys ran with the dogs... I took some pictures and sat down to knit. ;)


Then we headed downtown to do a little shopping and sightseeing. Tucson is only 45 minutes from Mexico, and the cultural influence is everywhere. I loved all the colorful, Southwest-style homes...


Eventually we headed home with our souvenirs. Lego candy, books about the desert and native cultures, and wallets made from recycled materials for the boys. A handmade bird's nest necklace for me! (And a little something for my giveaway... details to come after we get home!)


My sister made a yummy dinner, and we ate out on the patio...


Gluten-free chocolate birthday cake with whipcream frosting and fresh strawberries! (Yes, I had a second piece.)


Auntie Brookie got a late night chess lesson from Eldest...


A lovely birthday in every detail... Tomorrow morning we say our sad goodbyes, and head back to California.
