Springtime Means Picture Time

Last week, my sister-in-law came down from Utah to visit. Lance's mom and step-dad were also in town so we took them to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum for a fun day in the spring air. Things are already blooming and it was the most perfect day!

Some of the time, Skye had fun (here with Cori, Lance's sister)...
and some of the time, she didn't have fun.
You can definitely tell when she is happy and when she's not!
There was a "lake." It was really more like a pond, but it was still beautiful.
Pretty happy here.
Someone actually lives in this European style home. It was pretty magnificent.
An interesting looking saguaro.
Of course, Skye had lots of fun chasing Daddy around on the bridge.
We saw a ton of cardinals while there! I guess that's why Arizona's football team is called the cardinals!
Lance thought this was a good picture I took!
These succulent plants were just starting to bloom and were many different colors.

Cacti aren't the only plants with spines. Many plants here have poky measures to protect themselves!
I love springtime. It means I can take a lot of pictures of pretty things!

Love, love, LOVE the pictures of the flowers. You are a great photographer! Our weather can't decide if it's Spring or not. It fluctuates from week to week.

So nice you had family visit. I am jealous!

Oh, and I also love the picture at the top of your blog!

Great photos! Springtime in Phoenix really is beautiful. No wonder you love it so!
