Our Nothern Arizona Getaway

Monday, July 18, 2011
My sister in law's family has several cabins up in Williams, AZ and each summer they are gracious enough to let my family use them. We've gone up there for the past several years and it is always a blast (not to mention a relief from the crazy summer temps here in Phoenix) - this year was no exception.

We had a fabulous time getting away from it all spending time together.

The kids had an amazing time with their cousins.

And even managed to squeeze in some good wrestling matches.

We went to the Deer Farm and became fast friends with the animals there. The deer freaked Oliver out last year but this time, he couldn't get enough of them. He kept walking next to them with his arm around their neck as if they were old buddies.

We had fun exploring and spotting the wild life.

We went and checked out the trains at the Grand Canyon Rail Station. I love this place. The Grand Canyon Rail Station is a major draw for the little town of Williams and draws visitors from all over the world each summer. My favorite thing to do is walk around town and try to figure out how many different languages I can hear. So fun.

We even managed to lose power (blown transformer) and run out of water (for a day and a half!). Fortunately, we were in good company and didn't mind the minor inconveniences all that much. (HUGE shout out to my sister and her husband who rented a room at Motel 6 just so we could all go and take showers there ;)

 Hope you are all enjoying your summer too! I can't believe how fast it's flying by (the boys go back to school in just a few weeks!).

I keep meaning to take Pie to one of the animal farms around here. I'm betting she would love the deer too...fearless thing that she is!
