Mother's Day at Sedona

We had a wonderful day. Maya came back from breakfast with a yellow rose for me. I could hear her practicing all the way up the stairs "Happy Mudder's Day!"

Then we drove down the Oak Creek Canyon road to Sedona. It was a beautiful drive. We stopped at a nice little deli for sandwiches, chips and drinks.

Then we hiked down to the river.

There were several swimming holes. The day was hot and the water was cold.
The boys spent most of the day trying to catch fish and frogs.

The boys weren't too sure about the cold water at first but they worked up the nerve to take the plunge.

I made Riley scoot down and jump from the lowest ledge at the front of this rock.

We stopped at Cold Mountain on the way home for some ice cream.

Then we had another fabulous dinner at the restaurant where Sarah works, called Mountain Oasis. This time she got to sit and enjoy dinner with us! What a perfect day.

You did not mention how cheap that stop at the deli was...feeding 7 in a deli in a tourist town... It could be a quiz question. Love seeing your Alaskan white legs in the sun...
