Sunday we took a road trip to Phoenix to pick up Barbara & Henry after the Phoenix Subway 500 NASCAR race. They went to the race with Henry Sr & Liz, (parents) and we waited in the Hilton Garden INN Hotel lobby for them to get back from the race.
In the meantime, Herbert, Erin and the family were in Phoenix for a Karate tournament. Christopher participated in the 10-12 age group and wound up 1st & 3rd in his events. He lost to a 12 year old in the one event and beat everyone in the other. Pretty good for a 10 year old.

We left for Phoenix early to visit with Erin and family and they arrived at the hotel as we were walking in from the parking lot. Great timing. The lobby had one section that had a fireplace and a sitting area that was out of the way. We sat and visited for over an hour with them. The twins were fascinated by the scar on my knee and asked a million questions. Caden kept touching the scar and running his hand over it. Thank God he has a light touch. We had a nice visit and then it was time for them to begin their long trek back to Park City, UT. They were stopping in St. George, UT for the night, but that still was an eight hour drive for them and it was after 5pm when they left for the long drive.

We had a 2 hour plus drive ahead of us and we left the restaurant and arrived home after 10pm. By this time my knee was barking at me and demanded some attention. I can't drive if I take pain pills, so it was a pain pill free day for me. Ouch!
