I had to do a little trimming of the bushes here...
who knew stuff GREW in the desert!
Well, let me just tell you that it does! And at alarming rates no less!
We took a trip to Gallup, New Mexico with Mr. Cookie.
Here is some of the breath-taking view we enjoyed during the trip:
The pictures cannot take the place of the real thing,
but they are still beautiful!
This one is Mr. Cookies favorite:
How did that form!? On a curve with all of it's layers!
Crazy I tell you!!
We had a great time at the hotel of course! We met lots of Grandma's and Grandpa's and watched "Dancing with the Stars" for the first time. It was GREAT! I think we are going to try to remember to watch it...
We were fascinated by the mirror on the ceiling of the elevator!
LOL!! Fun, fun!
The girls LOVE swimming! Great excercise too!
The elevation in Phoenix is 1,072 feet.
The elevation in Window Rock (our actual destination)
was 8,546 feet.
Talk about a climb!
That's 7,474 feet UP!!
There is 5,280 feet in a mile, so, we went up 1-1/2 miles!
And ear-popping!! LOL!
On another note, my sweet sister sent me this gift:
It goes perfectly with the decor here in the kitchen.
And what is says goes perfectly with my life!
We got home late on Wednesday, brought the kids to AWANA,
and went to bed.
Thursday morning I dropped Mr. Cookie off at the airport to come see all of you.
Wish we were all coming home to visit too!
Love and Miss Everyone,
