Grapefruits, Lemons, and Oranges, Oh My!

We decided we needed a brief respite from the seemingly endless Ithaca winter, so we spent a couple of weeks in the warm Arizona sun. It was delightful.

We played outside a ton...

…enjoyed the desert scenery….

…and we drank fresh lemonade (made by Jonathan) almost every day.

We, also, visited Old Town Scottsdale…

…and Lincoln’s Great-Grandparents.

Jonathan and I struck out on our own and took a day-trip to the Grand Canyon. We missed Lincoln (who stayed home with his Mamie), but otherwise we really enjoyed our little side trip.

Lincoln discovered he loves to swim. Outside. In January. Delightful, I say.

We tried to recreate a classic Jones generational photo…

… and spent lots of quality time with Lincoln’s little cousin.

We explored a little bit of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix and discovered that Lincoln really loves to hike.

Really, we loved being able to spend so much time outside. Thanks, Senior Joneses for letting us come to visit!

Can I just say that that "classic" photo is awesome?

Except Granddad needs a beard and Lincoln needs a dress. ;)

Good job getting all those pictures up. That is a lot of work. I'm so glad you had such great weather in AZ. Did it make you feel better or worse about coming back to finishing the winter in Ithaca?

The sun... the sun... I'm glad to see it still is out there. :)

It looks so nice there! I love how the pictures are displayed on the blog. And I'm so glad you were able to enjoy some sun!
