A welcome visit


My brother, John, is in town for a week; it's his first time in El Paso, so we've got ourselves a tidy little list of sightseeing that we'd like to do before he leaves.  But most importantly, Sammy, Captain Husband and I are enjoying his company.


The weather continues to be sunny and warm here in El Paso, so John and I decided to take Sammy to the Westside Community Park to try and wear him down a bit (he had spent all morning trying to wear us out, so turnabout was totally fair game).  We spent a little bit of time at the children's playground before deciding to go on a short hike; the park includes several acres of undeveloped Chihuahuan Desert with marked trails, benches and lookout points.  And rocks...lots and lots of rocks--every boy's favorite.


Sammy seemed to enjoy the walk, even though he made sure to punctuate it with a tantrum or three after we had to restrain him from attempting to go down the rather steep hillsides on his own.  Eventually he was distracted enough by a softball that my brother found to forget all about it and soon busied himself with throwing the ball and then running after it.

Wearing Sammy out! Ha ha! We wait so long for them to walk, then when they do, they run us ragged!

I envy your temperate climate (at least this time of year - I'm sure the summer is oppressively warm) It is cold and rainy here, and melting snow and puddles which will freeze overnight and become small ice skating rinks, just waiting for me to fall on my behind!

We should be expecting more great photos?
I adore the last shot, the tones are beautiful! Did y'all keep the old baseball?

Must be great to have an extra pair of eyes and hands around. Lovely opportunity to play "tourist" too.

Sam's looking older these days but, probably because I haven't been by to visit him in a while:). He is such a cutie pie Laura! Nice to have a visit from your bro. I gotta get my bro's butt back out here for a visit:).
