Long Weekend in Phoenix

On Thursday we drove to Phoenix for the start of a great weekend. Thursday night's concert at Arena was terrific. How can Bruce not be terrific?
He closed, 3 (straight) hours and 20 minutes later, with Santa Claus is Coming to Town and invited all the children onto the stage.  It reminded me of Central Park and Jil on stage with all the children - that time invited by Pete Seeger.
We stayed within walking distance of the arena and were surprised the next day to see what we had walked past in the dark.
We drove back to Tucson, where we saw this Great Horned Owl.
Quite a weekend!

Thanksgiving in Aluquerque

We left Colorado on Nov.19, after having a birthday dinner with Jil (hopefully pictures will follow shortly) and drove to Albuquerque where we met up with Kate, James, Kyle and Liam.  We visited Petroglyph National Monument,

the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum, (not sure why this was in the balloon museum).
 the Explora Science Center and Children's Museum, where there were challenges for all.
and help too!
On Thanksgiving day we rode the Sandia Peak Tram.
And ended the day with a  nice harvest dinner at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
