Two Days and Counting

Until we leave for our anniversary trip! The bags are mostly packed, the cat sitter/house sitter is ready to take over, three Christmas trees are decorated, the house is as clean as it's gonna get and we are SO ready to get the heck out of here!

We will start our trip in Phoenix, AZ staying at a resort that has 8 pools, a 100 ft water slide and a lazy river; sounds delightful! Several scrapbook stores to visit and 100 degree temps. I was kind of hoping that we would be leaving behind another cold spell here in the midwest so that 100 would be a nice change but, heck, it was 93 degrees this past weekend!

Then on to Flagstaff, the Meteor Crater and two nights in Williams, AZ. We will visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (we decided that after flying OVER it for the last two years, we'd like to actually see if from the ground) and I have a surprise pitstop for Tim on the drive up to the Grand'll have to wait for pictures!

Wednesday we will drive Rt. 66 across the top of AZ, stopping at as many Roadside Icons that we can! I'm sure we'll find lots of neat old signs for me to take pictures of and I have some must see places to stop at/eat at! We'll drive on to Las Vegas where we'll stay for three nights and THIS time I get to see Barry Manilow in concert! YAY! He was on a hiatus two years ago when we were there. Two more scrapbook stores in Vegas to visit, a tour of the Boneyard and Neon Museum will add to the fun!

Then it's back home bright and early (thanks AA for canceling our original flight that left nice and late at 12:30pm and rebooking us on the 8:30 am one...can I say, that will be a 4-5am morning, ugh!) Sat!

Another busy trip but we like it that way! Maybe SOMEDAY we'll go sit on a beach and do nothing but I doubt it!

You should be a travel tour designer. I want to take this trip you describe so bad. Not sure 'bout the Barry Manilow part, maybe I'd sub Siegfried and Roy.
