Many of my postings have featured the four older grandchildren, Piano Man, Desert Princess, Baby Iris and Princess Petra. Just realized yesterday, that the youngest grandchild, Bella, who was born April 30th, had not received the press she so richly deserves, so this blog is dedicated to you, my Princess Bella.
Bella will soon be 8 months old and has grown up so much in the last couple of months. Despite her early start and being a "preemie", she has quickly caught up and is crawling all over to discover her environment. She not only love sitting up, but also prefers feeding herself, which can be a little messy, to say the least. Yikes! Like her parents, she already enjoys the out of doors, and can be calmed at any time by taking her outside. Josie, her canine sister, is quite protective and keeps good company close by until Bella starts to complain about something too loudly.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
