San Xavier Mission

Eight miles from our house in Sahuarita, AZ is the beautiful San Xavier Mission. It was originally built in the 1700s when Southern Arizona was part of New Spain. Our family had a lot of fun visiting the mission on Saturday. The girls call it "the castle". We can see it from the freeway, and they always call out when they see it. It truly was beautiful! Just another reason for you to visit us here in Arizona!

Always fun to visit new sights, especially when you don't have to drive much. I like your glasses Julie.

Wow what a beautiful place. We'll definitely have to check it out when (if) we get to visit you.
