Jeff, Linda, Maya, Jen and her boyfriend Chad flew in to Mesa for a long weekend visit with us and for Jeff to run in his first marathon here in Phoenix. He's been training for this for nearly a year now, and has had to get past some substantial setbacks to arrive here to run in this annual marathon. There will be another post about the marathon, but this one is about family time at our home in Mesa.
Little Maya just keeps getting cuter and cuter. Hard to believe that's possible, but it is. Not only is she cute, but she is also a great little person. She goes everywhere with Jeff and Linda, and seems to roll along with things without any fussing. She really is a sweetheart! They are now pregnant with their second child which will be born this summer while we're in Alaska.
We're in for about 5 days of rain here in the Phoenix area which we very badly need. It's a good thing that it held off until after the marathon.
Everyone has now left and we're back to just the two of us until our friends Paul and Marsha arrive from Virginia for an 8 day stay. Really looking forward to seeing and spending time with them.
