California Ho!


We spent our first night in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The weather was nice and dry which is a nice change from Oklahoma humidity.

These pics are taken on the road in the car, so please forgive any blurring or glare from the windshield.

Here is New Mexico.  I really love the desert with the hills and red rocks.  It has a special atmosphere.  We stopped in Dumas for lunch and it was only 80 degrees at noon!  What a refreshing air that was.


And then we got into Arizona.  We went through the typical desert looking areas you would expect

And then.....to our surprise, MOUNTAINS.  Gorgeous areas up at 7,000 plus feet.  Not at all how I think of Arizona.  Most of these are near the mountain town of Payson.  It reminded us a little of Lake Tahoe.


Incredible. 

And then on to Mesa, Arizona.   Near Phoenix.  This is where we're spending the night.  It was a cool 111 degrees when we arrived.  Ummm, yeah, it's hot, even if it is dry.

The kids were so excited to see all the Cactus (cacti, cactuses??? that's a nod to veggie tales)

Tomorrow we're off to Anaheim, California for 2 nights.  We're planning to spend Tuesday in Disneyland!!  I may not post tomorrow, but you can for sure expect a post on Tuesday night.  I can't wait.  The last time I was at Disney, I was pregnant with Adin and couldn't ride on anything.  I think we're all going to have a great time.
