The morning of the girls were so excited they woke up before 6am, got ready, ate breakfast and then came and woke us up. It was still dark! Our girls love to travel - their poor husbands are in for a treat I tell ya! We got packed, headed out all before 8am.
(disclaimer - this happened last week)
Here's some lovely pictures of the beautiful drive we have here in the southwest:
We got just outside Tucson and had to make a stop into town because I have lived in AZ for 17 years and I have never been to Tuscon. Hello? What? So I had to get a tour. It's small so it didn't take too long. I did find some interesting things to take pictures of and we did stop and get some hot, fresh (almost as good as the Bagel Bakery in Salinas) bagels for breakfast.
The Queen Mine Tours. so we turned around and went to the Colossal Cave Mountain Park that wasn't too far away from where we were.
We didn't know too much about it but Cassidy had been there on a field trip a few years ago and was able to bring us up to speed.
Miss Abby is always willing to pose for a picture.
Love that girl!
My two sweeties♥xo♥
Cass took over the camera and snapped one of Tom, Abby and I
Ummmmmm....can you tell where the water is? HA!
And now for some pictures from inside the cave. It was about a 45 min. tour and SO interesting!
Worth going to if you are ever in the area.
Growing up in northern California my Dad was so good about taking us kids exploring our state. All the different beaches, the redwoods, state parks, mountains, you name it we did it. I realized that I want to do that with my kids. Explore our state. See what it was to offer. I'm excited to come up with some more fun day trips to take together as a family.
Day 3 - almost didn't work out but we made up for it in the end!
