TPC in Sedona

So I've been out and about lately. Driving through the western US deserts. There was the trip to Las Vegas, which I bitched about in an earlier blog post, but which I've not yet shared photos of. These will have to wait, as I'm still getting over the horror of the place.

After a 2 day return to San Diego to check in at work, do laundry, re-pack, and grab the remaining members of the family, we sent off for northern Arizona. Our first stop was Sedona, where we spent 5 nights with my family.

The first full day there was the 4th of July. It was a good holiday regardless of the lack of boomers -- we did have our swag.

And we learned that evening at the Oak Creek Brewery that little miss C is neither left or right handed when it comes to pasta.

The rest of the days we played at the pool

and hit the creek,

where my brother impressed us with his mad crayfish-catching abilities.

Dinner anyone?

We enjoyed the gorgeous vistas,

learned how to drive,

What? You didn't think I'd start her out in a Jeep did you?
and to throw

and just generally enjoyed being with our mother/nonnie/cousins/siblings/in-laws/children

Nonnie's triumphant arrival

But then, too soon, it was Friday; time to go our separate ways. We headed north to Flagstaff....but that's a story for another day...

Oh, how adorable! My favorite is Pat/Nonnie's arrival -- warms a girl's heart to see; I can only imagine how a Nonnie's heart must feel.

Love seeing you all together -- looks absolutely lovely, Western Girl.

So nice to see everyone together! Now, when will I see *you*???? Are you free for sushi any time before the 22nd? Or come to the dance recital at Emiliano's on Tuesday night....



Me, You, or Ellie said...

Yeah, we need to work on getting together before you jet off to the east coast!
