We started our trip by visiting my Aunt P and Uncle Bob. Which some how I managed not to get a single picture. We enjoyed a lovely meal and Uncle Bob took the boys for ATV rides. So now he is their favorite UNCLE ever. We spent the night in Flagstaff.
Day 2 - Craters to Castles
It seemed only appropriate as the whole reason we were in Arizona was for my husband to attend a shooting competition. We stopped at Montezuma's Castle National Monument. The cliff dwellings are stunning and so intact.
Supposedly I had been here as a young girl but I don't remember it. We were there during the week and really enjoyed talking with the Ranger.
Day 3 - Swimming and Shooting

The rest of us enjoyed the sun and swam. We were near a mall so we trekked over to the Mall for lunch and a stop at Toys R Us for some browsing time.
Day 4 - More Shooting, Swimming and Gold
|Giant Man Child and Me at Goldfield|
Day 5 - long trek home or a dark and stormy night
More shooting - Do you see a theme here. The whole family to the range. Hubby came in 81st in his class out of 140. There were a total of over 400 shooters there for the weekend. We arrived back home in the rain and dark after 3 different legs at midnight to find our car wouldn't start. So we cabbed it home. We were exhausted. All in all it was a great trip.
