On the Road and Fun in Phoenix

For Emmy’s Spring Break, we decided to take a trip to Arizona so that the twins could meet their Great-Grandma Conquer. They got to meet my grandma last summer while we were evacuated during the fire, so if we can fit in a trip to Oregon they will have met all of their living great-grandparents.

As you see in the first picture, Los Alamos had got quite a bit of snow on Sunday night, so we were eager to get to Arizona with some warmer weather. I’ve never visited Arizona in the summer (except just driving through), and I’m not sure I could handle all that heat, but the weather was great the whole time we were there. The girls did great on our drive! Julia and I think they’re spoiled, of course, considering that they got to watch movies on the DVD player. We both remember riding in the car on many vacations with no such luxuries. 🙂

On our trip, we got to do lots of fun activities. Sometimes I think our lives must sound really exciting when you read our blog, but living in our small town means that you have to maximize your fun whenever you’re in a big city. One day we took the girls to play miniature golf, which was a lot of fun. It would have been even more fun if the teenagers and their parents ahead of us weren’t incredibly slow (we skipped them around the 16th hole), but we still had lots of fun and Emmy definitely won the day with four holes in one! It was very impressive.

Stay tuned for more pictures from our Spring Break trip!
