Tombstone AZ

In February 1994, While Katie, Lyndsey and I went to a Baby Shower for My Niece Missy, Paul and Ricky went to see the new movie.. Tombstone with Kurt Russell. Two things came that day. Little Blaike, Missy's little girl came early because Mommy had a severe case of Pre-Clampsia (sp) which made delivery an emergency the next morning. The second major change came when I saw Paul later that night.. Wyatt Earp, his brothers, his wives, Tombstone and basically all of AZ and the old west entered our lives that day in 1994. All vacations after that were in AZ. This picture was taken on our first Visit to Tombstone, in May 1995. 
We went again in 1996, 1998 and 2000. Eventually I even owned clothes of the period. Paul owned several coats, long coats and guns of the era. Yes, My usually normal but never grown up husband, even became a member of S.A.S.S. (Single Action Shooters Society). 
Since moving to AZ, I have been unable to get Paul to go anywhere here.. Long story there. 
Today, we are about to embark on an adventure... We're going to Wilcox AZ, where Warren Earp is buried.. Yes, I have pictures of Paul and even some with Paul and Makayla at Earp Brothers Gravesites.. Wilcox is about an hour east of Tombstone. We may even spend the night in the area and come home tomorrow. Either way, I will have MORE than ample opportunity to practice with my camera.
I'd never admit this to Paul, but I sure am looking forward to seeing the "old Sites" in Tombstone.
Have a nice day everyone and thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.
