Arizona, New Mexico Part 2

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a good Monday! I’m definitely excited I don’t have to go to back to work until Thursday! This break/vacation was LONG overdue! Although I went on vacation to Florida last October, it was time for another one! My job causes me to get burned out after a few months go by.

We’re now in Lordsburg, New Mexico for tonight. After we left Phoenix, we went to Scottsdale to take a tour of world famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s home. It was an interesting and unique home to say the least.

When we got to Phoenix on Sunday, we drove around town. We ate at a local pizzeria downtown called Brick. We had a four cheese pepperoni pizza. We then drove to IKEA in Tempe. This was the first time I’ve ever gone. I liked a few things but not as much as I thought I would. Andre is remodeling the house so we both agreed on a new sink and accessories like bedroom curtains and dining room lights. The store was extremely packed so we might order the items we liked online. We relaxed in our hotel room and watched TV. Our hotel gave us complimentary food and mixed drinks!

I didn’t post about our visit to The Grand Canyon because I was exhausted when we came back on Saturday evening. We ended up falling asleep at around 8! I’m really not sure how much we walked. Luckily, It wasn’t as hot as I thought it would be. The temperature was about 90.
We boarded a train from Williams at 9:30 a.m. My boys were getting bored because the ride was slow and took two hours. There was live music and a staged robbery.

It was also great interacting and observing people from around the world. People came as far as Italy and England! After we got to the Grand Canyon, we ate and took a 90-minute bus tour. The tour guide pulled over twice so we could take photos, along with visiting a geology museum and the
Hopi House.

The Hopi House sold various Native American rugs, pottery, jewelry and souvenirs. We enjoyed watching Native Americans perform music and dances. Here are some more photos below.

  1. It’s really never appealed to me. I’m a little scared to drown too. I don’t mind a jacuzzi but a pool, other bodies of water eh. I hate when the water is very cold too.

  2. Seeing The Grand Canyon no doubt! I’ve wanted to go since I was 7 or 8 years old. I read a book and wanted to go since. It’s amazing, beautiful! It also wasn’t as hot as I thought it would be so that was good. I’m glad I got to take my son and my boyfriend.
