Well, folks, we’ve finally made it…to the end of our Spring Break pictures!  These final pictures encompass two places.  The first picture is the only one from our visit to Tubac, an artsy town south of where my father lives.  Why only one picture?  Because the kids were NOT in the mood to be there.  […]
