Curt and I spent our seventh anniversary in Tucson, Arizona with Christina and Chris Carmody. I met Christina in Cuba and they live in Prescott, Arizona so this was a half way point. We didn't arrive until late on Friday but we got to catch up with them around the pool for awhile.
The next morning we went on a bike ride for about 23.5 miles. Tucson is great because it has bike lanes EVERYWHERE. Chris took us on part of the 100 mile ride called the Tour de Tucson. Just by chance we saw a gila monster by the side of the road. They said it was a rare lizard that they had never even seen in the wild.
We all brought our dogs so after the ride we hit up Eegee's which is an Arizona chain sandwich shop and got a picnic lunch to take to the park. They also have some really yummy slushies called Eegees. We took all the stuff a few minutes down the road to Catalina Park and they let their three big dogs run around and we had lunch. We did a short walk around the bird loop and went back to the hotel.
The rest of the afternoon we spent relaxing by the pool with a break only long enough to have pie from the Village Inn
We celebrated our dinner and Las Margaritas, a Mexican restaurant that was within walking distance.
Sunday started much the same way with a 23.5 mile bike ride followed by brunch at the Village Inn. Unfortunately not long after that we had to head for home
