Parker, AZ..Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone! How time flies even when you're not doing much! Our last day in Parker before heading towards home.  After showing Ken the temps at home (12 degrees with a high of 35) I don't think he's in such a hurry anymore. haha. It's been pretty chilly here in Parker too.  WE've got clear beautiful skies  today and a wind 48 degrees but feels like 40.  

We've had a great few days with Karen and John.  Karen's daughter, Isabel came to visit Saturday and Sunday. She brought her boyfriend, Casey and her kids Cameron and Sophia.  Was really nice see and spend some time with them. We ate too much and drank too much. Oh well.

Honestly don't think we'd stay here again..too crowded

A Christmas gift from a friend..haha



WE've been putting our Little Red Campfire to good use every afternoon and evening.  Bundled up like Eskimos but we're enjoying. 

New Years didn't make it to midnight but that's ok.  Karen and John bar b qued some excellent chicken and veggies and before that we both made snacks and enjoyed those too.  

Sophia...she loves getting her picture taken

So does Mugsy..

Today we took our time getting up and getting going. We'll meet up with our friends and take them on the CA side up to Parker Dam just for something to do out of the wind. 

Tomorrow they'll head home and we're thinking we'll head to Death Valley for a few days just because...I tried to talk him into South Padre, Texas..but didn't get that one to work :(  haha. 

Hope you all have a wonderful first day of the new year!!


  1. I've always wanted to go to South Padre TX. Jerry .....not so much. But it's still on my bucket list. Elva

    1. We did like it, but we'll see if we make it back again.

  2. Sounds like a fun New Years with friends now soon back home again for a bit. We had been to Brownsville, South Padre island and Mustang Island on the coast, It was ok, very windy, busy, cool and humid, we much prefer the southwest desert. But at least we have been there.

    1. We were there in 2012 and sometime I'd like to go back, but we'll see. Did really like the Texas hill country though.

  3. Looks like it's pretty packed there in Parker. How long are you staying in Yerington before heading back out to Padre Island for Spring Break?

    1. Haha...No Padre Island for Spring break! Oh my goodness imagine the crowds!

  4. Sounds like you had a cold but nice New Years. Our first year out we spent Christmas on Mustang Island in Texas. Thought we were going to blow away...lol Would still love to go back though.
    Don't go to far you need to be back this way in a couple of weeks...:)

  5. Looks like a cold visit but a good time. Amazing what some good cheer can do to brighten the day. Happy New Year!!! Safe travels.
