Here I am in Arizona! I went to Branson Missouri first and it rained everyday. But we took in some shows and road a river boat and went to the wax museums. It was pretty cool. Flight to az was pretty uneventful but than how much can happen in 2 hours? We had a limo pickus up at the airport which was nice since everyone was tired. I was able to get out on most days in Branson but there were a few times I stayed in an rested. Ihave several places I have to go in the next 2 weeks so I am going to just try to get some rest for a couple of days. I did go out to the pool last night but it was getting a little later in the day. I did notice even in Branson I had a few more spots show up on my face than normal so I need to be careful about that. Anyway I need to go to the store and stop by walgreens to get some pictures developed and than I'm gonna lay in the bedroom and watch some t.v.
Love ya all
God Bless

Hi Carol!

It sounds like you're having a great trip and doing some fun things. I've always wanted to ride on a riverboat. Other than the spots on your face, you don't say how you're feeling but it sounds like all the activities aren't being too hard on your body. Good for you for taking the time to rest. Thanks for checking in. We miss you.
