Flagstaff & Grand Canyon

We took advantage of Labor Day weekend and camped in Flagstaff, one of our favorite cities. We stayed at the KOA (bad move). It was a bit loud being right next to the road, and this made it difficult on Elliot. He woke up often; thus, we woke up often.

We attended Sacrament meeting Sunday morning, and we were amazed at how nice people were. Families were offering Elliot toys. Others kept us twenty minutes after the meeting just to talk. Them Flagstaffers got 'em some mad fellowshipping skills.

After church, we drove to the Grand Canyon. It was incredible.

At one stop, we were able to use our new favorite toy: the Sherpani kid carrier. It's essentially a kid backpack, and it worked like a charm. We descended into the canyon for quite a while, almost reaching the floor before turning around because of fog and overcast skies.

Best part about the Sherpani is Elliot loves it.

And just because the Grand Canyon was gorgeous, here's another photo.

On the way home, we stopped by the Four Corners Monument. There's really nothing to it, but you can be in four states simultaneously, so it was worth the detour, I guess.

Elliot was slightly less than impressed; however, he did find the Navajo fry bread stand and the fifty port-a-potties rather amusing.

So, while we didn't get much sleep, we had a fantastic weekend together.
