Go West Young Man, Go West...

Or in our case Go West Young Family, Go West :)
Sitting on our plane at the Pittsburgh Airport waiting to leave.

Something about being above the clouds always makes me think of Heaven. The 2nd time I ever flew I was 4 or 5 years old.  I remember leaning over and asking my oldest brother if we would be able to see Heaven while up there :)  I was a little disappointed that I wouldn't.

The town of our 1st and most important destination - Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  And after 6.5 hours of travelling that was a welcome site.

Don't you just love those mountains? I sure do!!

The reason for our trip West - a surprise birthday party for my Mom :)

While out there I enjoyed fresh grapefruit from her backyard.
And my first homegrown tomato of the year - man was it delish!!

Up-close and personal with the Palm trees.

Proof that my Mom must have the greenest green thumb on the planet. Only she can take a desert yard and turn it into an oasis.
I sat back here every chance I got, just soaking in the beauty and the warm sun. Ah, did that ever feel good!

A fun pit-stop while en-route to Williams, Arizona.
One of the West's uniqueness is you never know what you will see along the way. Lots of history which I love.

One of the greatest places of the West - The Grand Canyon

Her awesomeness a forever mystery to mankind but not to God her Creator.

Do you see anything?
Yo dude! Whatcha lookin at?

We even got to experience some of the beauty in Sedona, Arizona.
I never knew Arizona contained such beauty.  Sedona makes me think I could live there :)

The San Francisco Mountain Peaks 

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.  Psalm 121:1-2

Now you know (if you were wondering) where I have been for the last several days.  It was wonderful to get away and experience different scenery.  But as always, it's good to be back home :)


  1. You have some amazing pictures here. Beautiful.

  2. I was raised in Indiana, PA so I fly in to Pittsburg often. I keep telling my husband I want to move to Arizona. I've only been there 3 times but I loved it each time. Natives tell me it's because I've never been there in the summer. So wonderful you could celebrate your mother's 60th.

  3. Sussie, really enjoyed your pictures.. that was really sweet for the birthday party for your mom. She deserves it. She's a great lady. Looks like you all had a wonderful time and I'm sure she injoyed her grandchildren..


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from each of you.
