Here a Munzee, There a Munzee…

We had a day filled with Munzee hunting with a little bit of sightseeing thrown in! Our first Munzee location took us to Carefree, Arizona…a very charming community that was developed to blend into its surroundings.  Many of the homes are built into the hills/mountains and done so well that many of them are hard … Continue reading »

The Hobbit & The Birds

During our Munzee adventures we found a movie theater, Super Saver Cinema 8, here in Phoenix that shows movies on Tuesdays for $1.50!  I was afraid that they movies would be really old…but they’re not…most are within a year old.  Today we decided to go and see The Hobbit.  You really can’t beat a 2.5 … Continue reading »

Happy (almost 50th) Birthday, Michael!

Three Days Rolled Up Into One!

Michael and I went to mass on Saturday afternoon at St. Luke’s Catholic Church here in Phoenix.  We enjoyed the mass as the priest spoke to us and not above us making it very easy to understand his homily.  The priest is originally from Poland and his accent was quite strong so I was concerned … Continue reading »
