We dove the 6 1/2 hours to Sedona, Arizona on Saturday and were able to meet Margaret and Jeff for lunch for Father's Day on Sunday before they returned to Phoenix to fly home Monday. It was a nice, although short, visit at our timshare vacation villa.

We had a delicious lunch at the Creekside Restaurant and enjoyed catching up with both of them. They've had a whirlwind of events this month. They moved to Cleveland (Margaret's birthplace) from Davenport, IA with a 4 1/2 year old son, set up a new house, put the old one on the market, found a new school for Max, and Jeff began looking for a new job.
My husband, Ron, and Margaret chatted about old memories of Cleveland neighborhoods. Margaret is especiallly happy to be "home" with so many family members living in Cleveland.

It was a beautiful Father's Day for everyone. We drove back through the lovely Red Rocks of Sedona on Monday. Then we took a less traveled route (US Hwy 260) through Mogollon Rim country to Payson and Heber before jumping back on I-40 at Holbrook in Navajo Country.
We stopped for a Laguna Burger (one of the best Green chile cheeseburgers in New Mexico) at the Pueblo of Laguna just west of Albuquerque and arrived home shortly after 5PM .
