Surprise - - we are in Surprise, Arizona! Jeanette’s sister Patty and her husband Kordel invited us to their home in Surprise for Christmas Dinner. Here is Jeanette, Patty, and Kordel in their pool this evening. Notice the orange tree in their neighbor’s back yard in the background. Lots of sunshine here today with the temperatures up to seventy degrees. Surprise is a suburb of Phoenix, and about 160 miles from where we are staying at Buckskin Mountain State Park.
