Arizona

My grandma and grandpa Engleson moved to Arizona when I was in middle school and I’ve gone to visit them more times than I can count. My cousin Kate and I would spend many school vacations down in their retirement park, cruising around in their golf cart, doing loads of puzzles and making up synchronized swimming routines to entertain the old ladies. A particularly memorable trip was in 2001 when the entire Engleson family met in Arizona to celebrate my¬†grandparents’ 50th anniversary and we took a glorious trip to the Grand Canyon! 2011 was also a memorable year, but a sad one. Kate, Peggy and I visited my grandparents in June and then the whole family gathered once again to pay tribute to our sweet grandma in October. A visit to Arizona just won’t be the same without her, but I’m looking forward to visiting my grandpa again soon!
