Mother's Day 2005, Visiting Phoenix, AZ

Here we are! Another of SJ's and Mom's Totally Awesome Adventures. We were in Phoenix for a week participating in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair along with 1447 students from 41 countries. The future of science and engineering is in mighty capable hands judging from these amazing young people & the work they have accomplished so far.

Mostly we ate Mexican, sat by the pool, shopped and walked, and walked, and walked! Great fun being together.
