Division of the Troops...

Leaving San Diego, our next stop was Arizona. Wayne, Kelly and Cameron were to be staying with Wayne's sister Cheryl and her husband Jim in Casa Grande, while I would be going 45 minutes farther to stay with my daughter Tiffany and my son-in-law Kostas and to play with my 18 month old granddaughter, Eleftheria. We arrived at the Capizzis' lovely southwest decor home at about 7 in the evening. After showing us around, Cheryl treated us to some of her fantastic chili that had been teasing our taste buds since we entered her home.  After supper, Cheryl and Jim got the rest of the crew settled, then loaded me up in their SUV and drove me to Tiffany's.
I know that Sunday was church time, pool time, and rock climbing time for those that stayed with the Capizzis. I know that the Capizzi crew explored the wonders of Sedona on Monday,  I, however, had the best two days of the whole vacation on this Sunday and Monday.  More awesome then Yellowstone. More awe-inspiring than the mountains, More fascinating then the Underground tour of Seattle.  I spent two amazing days discovering the wonder of Eleftheria and being with Tiff and Kostas!
So be warned; the pictures I have to share are of my granddaughter. I know every grandparent thinks their grandchild(ren) is the best.  Allow me to give you all some peace here--mine is!!!  :)

Blowing kisses..


Laughing with bubbles...

Cooking supper with Mommy...

Talking to Auntie Kristen and texting "I love you" to Uncle Greg
AT THE SAME TIME! 
(already she is better than me with technology!)

Monday we went to Joe's Farm Grill for lunch.  Absolutely yummy. The "foodie" in me appreciated that this restaurant was featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." The food was farm-fresh and fantastic! Thank you to Tiff for choosing this one.


The other wonderful thing about stopping here was an opportunity to take more pictures of my granddaughter...

Contemplating the mysteries of the french fry...

Chillin' with the fam...

As this day draws to a close, I am so very thankful for the time I could spend with the Kalaitzidis family.

Good night, sweet princess...
till we meet again.
