2007 Arizona Vacation...


Cool Slideshows

My brother, Doug and his Chihuahua Luke, went to the '07 Family Reunion on the 18th and stayed for a week on the desert. His guide was our mother's cousin, Sam. Doug didn't get any pictures of the reunion, so I am waiting for those to come in from the relatives! It looks like next year there will be several dune buggies and jeeps at the reunion! I remember the family reunion held in 1985 by ride down the wash in my second cousin Kevin's Jeep. He took Travis and Tony and I to "Tony's Well". The well is named after a great uncle.
Doug got back yesterday and ended up taking me out in his desert runner. Travis and Tony jumped on their dirt bikes and lead the way up into the mountains behind our town. I will share some of those pictures in a slideshow tomorrow.

The Arizona desert is so beautiful. My husband's Aunt and Uncle lived in Arizona their entire lives--owned land and a home in the desert town of Arlington. The nearest bigger town was Buckeye. I loved visiting them. They grew cotton. My husband and I would take their jeep out into the desert. These pictures brought back memories of how awesome the desert looks. Aunt and Uncle have passed away now, but we miss those times.

NO WAY!!! The reunion was in Arlington! My mother's family is from that area and she was born on the Jago Ranch in Arlington. My great Grandpa Richardson's ranch is in Arlington! No wonder the pictures brought back memories...it was the same area!!! What is Aunt and Uncle's name?

Sharon Lynne said...

Oh my gosh! My husband's Aunt and Uncle are Bob and Alma Richardson! Alma is my husband's mother's sister. Does this mean that you and my husband might be cousins? (in law?)

Hi Cousin CB!!
This is awesome! Mandy & Carolyn are my mother's first cousins! Uncle Bob is her father's brother...Walter Richardson. My mother thinks that she met Bill's mother at Aunt Alma's funeral? I can't believe this...
I have a post on Notes that has a picture of the purple glass that I bought of Aunt Alma's. It is:
