A few weekends ago JB and I headed out west with the rest of the Smith clan to Cave Creek, Arizona to visit the grandparents. Ruthie and Buddy Sheinbart. WHAT A TRIP (literally and figuratively)! I will not even attempt to put into words the entertaining life of Captain Buddy and Nana Ruth that I got to experience for a short, three-day stay! From "pussy" the cat to the purple leather sectional, from hand-me-down sweaters to story time with Buddy, the trip was full of love and laughter! The dry heat, ever-shining sun, pool side lounging, desert hikes, and dog fish head 90 minute were just the icing on the cake!
