Road Trippin': Day Six

Day Six: Last Day in Arizona

The last day in Arizona was eventful, Jesse & I got up early, visited Rhonda's {fabulous} shop in Phoenix.
We then went out to Cooperstown {the restaurant Alice Cooper owns in downtown Phoenix}, which is always interesting.
When we got back, my Aunt had driven down from the northeastern part of Arizona, and visited with us for a while.
Overall, it was a relaxing and fun trip, getting to catch up with everyone.

I really really love visiting Arizona.

Road Trippin': Day Five

Day Five: Fun in Arizona

Our first full day in Arizona was a blast.
We slept in, relaxed, and called my parents on Skype so that they could talk to David, Myra, and Rhonda.
No one knew how to Skype except for my mom, so it was a treat for them.
They talked for two and a half hours.
Basically, the battery on my computer died.
Anyway, mom had a collection of gifts she had not sent to any of them, but had collected for about five years.
They chatted, opened gifts, and David showed off some of his prized possessions.
We had dinner {Mexican food, yum}
and enjoyed some more pool time.

I love visiting Arizona and it was a great time,
100+ degree weather & all:)

Road Trippin': Day Four

Day Four: Arizona Bound

So we left California, got some Panera, and headed south.
It's really interesting how the terrain changes in southern California and then when you go into Arizona the terrain changes again.
I wonder sometimes how people thought of where to place the state lines because sometimes the terrain, trees, and landscape completely changes when you cross a state line.

Anyway, it was a nice trip, we drove around Los Angeles {instead of through LA}
where a cop kindly reminded Jesse he should be going 55 {think hand gestures...and not the "number one" if you catch my drift}.
It was at least in the triple digits way before we got to LA, and we almost ran out of gas partway through Arizona.
Let me tell you, that made for an interesting 20 minutes...A black vehicle with pets, virtually no gas, and, in trying to cut down on gas usage, no AC.
Did I mention it was like 110?
Good times.

All & all we got to AZ without a hitch...went swimming and then to bed.
Good times.
More on Arizona next time!

Thanks for reading:)
