Not much to report today. We spent most of the day playing basketball and swimming in the hotel pool. There is a park like area at the Residence Inn by Marriott here that has a hillside where groundhogs burrow. Maya loves watching the groundhogs. She calls them "dwoing-dwoings". (Make the sound of a spring, substitute a d for the b). Riley caught a garter snake today. We don't have snakes in Alaska so that was a treat for the boys.
It's been really fun having my mom on this trip. She keeps the kids entertained so Matt and I can actually enjoy ourselves from time to time. I'm learning a lot about my mom that I never knew before. For example, she is a very competitive basketball player. She even stole the ball from Chris, her own team mate, when Riley and I were catching up, even though they were 6 points ahead of us! Now I know why her favorite "cuss" word is "shoot!".
We found the only Vietnamese restaurant in Flagstaff! Get your pho on Route 66!
