Tucson and The Reese Effect

The last day we had to spend in Arizona we drove down to Tucson for a visit with Nathan, Linnley and their dog, Reese.  

In case you were wondering, Tucson is very moutainy.  Just as much as Provo, for sure.  

While we there there, we ate Sonoran hot dogs....

(hot dog wrapped in bacon, covered in pinto beans, tomatoes, onions, grilled onions, mayo, mustard and jalapeno sauce.)  These are a really big deal in Tucson.  And pretty tasty!

Outside of El Guero Canelo, which means "The Guero Canelo,"

Luke drove this old tractor:

After plowing 40 acres, I could sure go for a hot dog wrapped in bacon!

Played some Jenga.....

Toured the University of Arizona (where Nathan is getting his PhD)...

That Wildcat family is awesome! And those cats are pretty cool too.  

Does your finger need a foam finger?  

Hit up Golf 'N Stuff for some batting cage action.....

Poor Nathan.  He missed like, 3

....and some fossball.   

We found our Native American brother....

Narrowly missed getting hit by this swirling desert sandstorm....

This was so weird, like a microburst with sand

Drove by this restaurant, "Little Luke's" which has "Chicago style sandwiches" and yet has a picture of a hot dog on it..... (What is it with Tucson and hot dogs?)

No one takes a picture with a pole in it quite like me.  It's a skill.  

And secretly took this picture of Linnley while waiting for our BBQ dinner.  

But who are we kidding, the real star of Tucson was this girl!

The kids LOVED this dog.  She was the most patient and kind dog ever.  Please note that in all of my vacation photos, these are the only ones where Cindy was smiling.  It was ridiculous.  Ridiculously awesome!

The kids fed her approximately one million treats

Here is more evidence of the Reese effect:  Cindy was running. In the sun. Without complaining.  What planet am I on?


Thanks Nathan, Linnley and Reese!  
We had a great time in Tucson and can't wait to see Rees- I mean, everyone again :)

Take a picture with a dog?  Well, that's totally different.
