Why did our trip home from Phoenix take 15 hours?

Because it was not navigated by Angela, who's all about reaching the destination, but by Mark, who's all about detours and hence planned an excursion to the Grand Canyon.

On the plus side, the kids can now recite large portions of Kung Fu Panda in unison. On the down side, we ate fast food twice today--which is one-and-a-half times too many.

Some favorite Arizona pics:

Thanks again to Markus and Shanna who are the only people in the world (other than those who gave birth to us) brave and kind enough to host our family.


  1. I would host your family! Just bring them on over here. I have a feeling that 15 hour drive would seem like nothing though if you did.

    I'm so glad you guys had a great Thanksgiving.

    Your hair is so long! It looks great. And your bag is fabulous.

  2. I love that first photo, thanks for sharing your adventures!

  3. You guys are so generous--I think we look like quite a motley crew. Although, if we look like we just rolled out of bed and into the van at 6am, that would be because...

  4. Found your blog searching for Coldplay concert reviews, and stayed to stare at your book list. You seem like a woman after my own heart. Come visit me sometime!

  5. Awwwwe.... We still miss Arizona especially at this time of year. Looks like you guys had fun.
