Hello folks.

I'm in the midst of a driving tour vacation of Arizona.  (Note: it's hot here.  Like, 113 degrees hot.)

We've seen the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Page (AWESOME calm rafting trip down the Colorado River, Phoenix, and later today: Tucson.

I've eaten WAY too many cup-o-noodles and McDonald's, but also a fair number of KIND bars and apples.  Hampton Inn and Suites (3 of our nights are there) have a decent breakfast with nice fresh fruit.

I like when my vacations mix camping (cheap, quiet, lots of stars) with hotels (cooler, showers, gyms, and pools).

OH and I celebrated my 41st birthday with my boys while camping in the Grand Canyon.  Mather campground was the first place I ever camped as an adult, with my spouse, probably 12-13 years ago.  And?  It's still my favorite place to camp.  Shade, trees, good amount of space between campsites.

Off to take a shower and get ready to visit family in Tucson, where it's only 107.
