Mesa Swap Meet and Super Bowl Sunday

I have been mistakenly calling the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet a flea market all this time ... sorry 'bout that !!

We had no idea how large this place is.  Over 55 acres with over 1600 vendors.

The parking lot was a zoo !  Once inside we began browsing the many shops.

One thing we noticed right away was there are a number of vendors selling the same kind of merchandise.

We made our way through the crowds, and bought a few items, including a very nice wind chime for our motorhome.

We spent almost 3 hours there, and by the end I was completely shopped out, and began losing interest rapidly.

I think Teresa could sense that, and she suggested we come back some other time.  Alrighty then.

We arrived back at the resort, just in time for the Super Bowl party. 

The resort provided free beer and wine, and some appies, and the bowling team was selling hotdogs for a dollar.

My bride and I are not big NFL'ers, but we got to meet some friendly folks and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Today is Teresa's birthday, but we decided to celebrate it tomorrow, because everything was busy for the big game.

We are going to check out some other parks in the area, then we will enjoy a restaurant meal together.

Should be lots of fun !!
