Arizona in April... the best time to visit!

When Mark was asked to lecture for Invisalign in Arizona, 
I decided to fly out a few days earlier to spend some time with my dad. 
I timed the trip just right and also got to hold my little niece, Tammy's brand new baby girl, 
and celebrate my sister, Susan's birthday at lunch with some of her girlfriends.
It is always wonderful to be with my family in Arizona, 
but it seems like a bonus when the temperatures are in the 70's!
It was lovely to feel the warmth of the sun and see the sky so blue! 
 If only it could stay that way all summer:)!
Mark is getting into the spirit of things, after lecturing in Old Town Scottsdale.
Isn't he the cutest wire bending, Invisalign lecturing orthodontist ever?!
Here is Grandpa Olson with his newest little great granddaughter!
Introducing Emma Joyce!  Love her name!
So much hair!  Absolutely adorable!!
While Mark was at the conference, I took a morning walk around Old Town Scottsdale and enjoyed the sights.
I have to confess, I've eaten my fair share of Pinnacle Peak sundaes at Sugar Bowl.
Lots of friendly folks (and friendly mannequins) on the streets of Old Town Scottsdale!
In the afternoon I sat by the pool and look who came to visit me in between speakers.  
He brought me an ice cold diet pepsi.  What a good husband!
A trip to Arizona wouldn't be complete without dining at our favorite mexican restaurant, Tia Rosa's.
The grilled salmon with orange mango sauce was delicious!
Grandpa loved the fried ice cream...
and so did little Cameron!  Love this!
We took my dad on a Saturday morning drive to Canyon Lake.
My Dad and I enjoying a beautiful view of the lake.
This is the gorgeous view that we enjoyed as we ate lunch.
It was such a wonderful day with my dad!
We love spending time with him and he loves showing us the town!
It was a great trip! Mark got to lecture and teach other orthodontists about Invisalign, 
I spent quality time with my dad, ate some yummy mexican food 
and enjoyed beautiful spring weather!  This Arizona girl couldn't be happier!
