Riding the horses at a gas station in Wikieup, AZ.

I've been a little awol lately. We had a very busy June and I've wanted to put all of what we've been doing here - but finally decided to just do as much as I could at a time.

Saturday, June 7th, we left home very early to get to Las Vegas before it got too hot. We spent 3 days with Kannon's Aunt Karen and family. We really enjoyed just relaxing and playing in the pool. We also had a chance to visit Grandpa Wadlow and great-Grandma Sotira. We try to make this trip every year. This was the first time we stayed with the Murphy's and we really felt comfortable there. The kids got to know Kannon's cousins a little more, too. On Tuesday, June 10th, we took our second drive of the trip to Gilbert, Arizona to see my brother John and wife Heather. It was a hot drive. Our a/c has never really worked like it should, and we were obviously in a hot part of the country. We enjoyed seeing John and Heather's home. We spent a little time at the neighborhood park and had dinner with them. They also put us up for the night and the next day we went with John to an indoor amusement park and spent a few hours playing there. That was a great place - I still wish I had the money to get one going here. The kids got to ride the merry-g0-round, play bumper cars, ride a train and airplanes, air hockey, and skee-ball. There was a large indoor playground and even a sandbox. They didn't want to leave but we needed to get on our way to the Grand Canyon.
