Sleep, What’s That?

I have one longer break this month then the rest of the breaks are two or three days and this just happens to be that break. So, with family close by in Arizona, we couldn’t not see them so we headed out as soon as I got home from work on Monday morning across Arizona towards Mesa.  With one planned stop at the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert, and a planned dinner date with family at 5:00 or 5:30.
Being quite tired from the night of work I didn’t see as much of the scenery on this drive but of course just like the other drives there was much to see.

The kids take an oath at each park as part of the Jr. Ranger park program.
It took way longer to get through the park than the two hrs we were expecting so were relieved to realize that we entered another time zone and gained an hour.  We made it to Mesa and my Aunt Heidi’s house at exactly 5:00pm where my Cousin Heidi Marie and her Husband Matt and two adorable daughters Crystal and Savannah met us and we all went out to dinner at Nandos.  It was delicious and we had a lot of great conversation.  The two girls were having a blast and were very sad when 9:00pm came around and we had to say goodbye.
