You know what's great about living in Phoenix during the summer? Nothing.  Well, except for being able to drive 2 hours north to Flagstaff to escape the heat.  My mom and I took a small roadtrip a few weekends ago with Alexandra to Flagstaff.  We had a blast!

We stopped on the side of the road for some photo opportunities.  We saw a field of Black Eyed Susans and HAD to get some pictures.

We had lunch in downtown Flagstaff and walked around the little town for some shopping.  Then we went to the local park for a children's art and music festival with a live band.  Alex was in her own form of heaven with the music.  I literally had to chase her to prevent her from climbing onto the stage because she was so enthralled with the musicians.  Gulp.  I hope this isn't a sign of the future! 

She boogied down on the dance floor with the big kids and tried to hula hoop too.  

On the drive back home, we had a return visit to the field of Black Eyed Susans to hunt for my mom's lost glasses and I found them!!! I had to convince her to go back and we searched for awhile before I finally found them. Persistence pays off! What a fun story we will remember from that trip though.

How fun! Beautiful pictures, as always. :-) Looks like you had a wonderful day! This Grandma would like to join the fun some time, if you'll have me.
