This weekend Mr. Beaver had a business trip to Tucson. I was blessed to be able to go along. This was our first time to get away for longer than one night since we adopted the most recent trio 15 months ago. Following each of our three adoptions of older children, we have waited until the new children seem to have developed a sense of stability and security before we travel without them.
Here are some of the sights we saw. Our first clue that we weren't in the upper midwest came when palm trees flanked the drive-through lane at a fast food retaurant that southwesterners rave about.

|Flowers-of-a-sort within our patio area|
|These red blossoms were the hummingbirds' favorites|
|Another bit of gentle color with in our room's courtyard|
Outside our patio area, not everything looked quite as hospitable
|The entire area is dotted with saguaro cacti, their sizes varied greatly|
|The back of our hotel|
More to come.
