Our Wonderful First Day of Vacation

This is going to be short because I was too tired to blog last night and I need to start getting ready for the day.
We got to Phoenix after a early but good flight I think Jim enjoyed it more than me, but it was his Birthday, although he did not raise his hand when they asked on the plane if it was anyone’s birthday :0)
We found Bethany’s place with relative ease only one missed exit. We went out to lunch and then took off exploring the area, which was much easier to navigate than Portland. We found a cool monument park which had a couple memorials to the Arizona (the ship that is at the bottom of Pearl Harbor)
Here is a picture of Jim next to the Anchor.

Then we get to the good part of the night, dinner with Kim, John, Nick, Colton and KyLee. We had a great time. I was so nervous, I was really excited to meet them but I have never gone out to dinner with someone I met on the internet before, completely new experience for us.
We had a great time. The food was good. Jim was really worried about not liking the soup because with our bad food experiences lately he thought for sure they would think we were picky snobs. But the rest of the meal came and it was great. It reminded us of the Panda Garden, the restaurant that we used to eat at in college. Here are some pictures.

I also got some great gifts. I can't wait to put our picture in the frame.

What do you want us to do with our hands?? Oh this?

Thanks, Bison Family for a great meal and wonderful start to our vacation.
