Vacation Part 1
Ok, so I have explained about how MUCH I love Spring, right? Well, traveling in the Spring is simply the best! The weather is not too hot, yet the sun is warm & that makes me VERY happy...
So far, we've spent 2 nights in Las Vegas, our timeshare-dealy got us a 1 Bedroom overlooking the pool, which would not normally appeal to me but it was great, there were water slides & that was the main point of going there. Some friends cam to visit for the day & the boys were IN HEAVEN in that pool!
We were blessed to be given tickets to see Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian, it was AMAZING! We got seats right under the chandelier! ;) For those of you who have not seen it, I will say no more.
So then we headed to Williams, Arizona to meet up with the folks & do the whole Grand Canyon Railroad adventure thingy. It was AWESOME. We could not have asked for better weather, clearer skies or more fun!

So yesterday the family took the kiddo & headed home so Joe & I could spend some time 'alone' to try & be romantical to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. So we spent the afternoon in Flagstaff, which was great, had the BEST MOCHA EVER!! ....such a neat little town! Then we came to Sedona, I swear it is one of THE most gorgeous places on earth!
(Me in Sedona, kissing the "chicken", which is actually Coffee Pot Rock, but from this angle I thought it looked more like a chicken...)
We don't get cell or internet at the hotel so we're enjoying a lazy morning at the local coffee shop & took a mo' to bang out a quick post to show you all some love...
Stay tuned for Part 2....amazingly there is more, this is a long trip! ;-)
- Santa Susana, Ventura County, CA, United States
- Me? Well....I have a day job selling travel to beautiful far away lands, and I love to travel - my job sort of supports & feeds the 'travel monster' inside me. But my other inner monster is: food in all it's facets. I have a 13 yr old DS from a previous life, and married the lovely JoeBacon a three years ago! I finally became a home-owner at that point, we did a huge addition/re-model right away to make the house a bit bigger & I got a wonderful new kitchen out of the deal! I've gone thru Culinary School twice (mostly for fun) 'cuz I love to cook! And thru reading/doing the Maker's Diet 2 years ago, became aware of Sally Fallon, Weston Price, etc...and now after about 9 months of exploring their world, I'm trying to really make it all part of mine. I've had some things turn out great & others have been miserable failures, but I'm learning a LOT (mostly from my fellow NT Bloggers)!! Now I'm enjoying my yard, garden, sprouting, baking bread, brewing Kombucha, using raw milk, making Kefir & Yogurt & just trying to find small ways to make yummy food better for us.
