The Great AZ Tour. . . aka Blogifying Dad!

This has been one busy week! It began on Friday the 10th, when Jen and I took a day trip (read: ALL DAY trip) to Sedona for photos and fibers. We had a great time, despite the insane traffic. Check it out:
Big, cool-looking rocks. . .
in what's considered to be a "Big Park." Insightful, no?

We had a great time hiking around and enjoying a little picnic we'd packed. . . but the real fun began when we hit Knit 1 Bead 2, an awesome little shop in Jerome. The yarns are organized by color, which makes for an overwhelming (in the best way!) shopping experience! I did a little damage to the checkbook with 2 skeins of Koigu, 1 skein of Cascade 220, and the newest issue of Interweave.

Dad came into town on Sunday, and Monday afternoon we were off on another trek -- this time out to Prescott, home to dozens of antique shops and the historic Palace Saloon. Doc Holiday and the Earp brothers used to eat, drink, and play cards there -- so we thought we'd eat there, too. Awesome burgers and rootbeer! The scenery was gorgeous, but keep an eye out for those killer snakes and bugs!



Project updates will follow shortly!

Wow, I *so* love these pics, thanks for sharing them - it almost felt to be there myself, which I'd certainly love to one day! The pics with your Dad are so amazing too!

Looks like you had a blast!

I've never been to Sedona. Been to Phoenix, but that's not quite the same thing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and linking up to me. I am linking up to you right snappy!

Have a lovely holiday!
