Kate, James, Kyle and Liam visit Tucson

We had a good week with the Hynes' family - visiting local places and fun at home.  We went to the zoo, the botanical gardens, Agua Caliente, Biosphere2, Sabino Canyon and Raven Ranch.

Yes, we did have Christmas in Tucson

We had Christmas, just took me a while to post. On Christmas eve we had a great dinner with Jamie and Diana.  Jamie and I cooked  porc en daube (thanks Julia) and I made my first tart - a pear one.  Love the fluted edges.
It was a little chilly Christmas morning.
Then on New Year's Eve day we took a hike in the Rincons.
I know this is a crappy picture, but the little peak (that you can barely see) is Picacho Peak and it's halfway between Tucson and Phoenix.
Happy New Year Everyone!
