This past weekend we flew out to Phoenix then drove three hours north east to Holbrook, AZ. A small town on I- 40 which was once a popular spot on Route 66 before the freeway came through. Sound a bit like Cars? There is a reason for that. :)
The drive was long and desolate but quite beautiful. It's monsoon season so we got some big rain storms along the way. The sky in the desert is amazing.
We drove around Saturday to see all the dinosaurs around the city. One of my sister in law's loves dinosaurs and insisted on taking pictures with them all. The little girl loved it, too.
The reason for going was to have a wedding reception for the groom's family that couldn't make it out to the wedding the weekend before. It was held at the family's B&B, Heward House Inn. It was a lovely Southwestern affair. We all had a great time.
And the bride's new shawl was complemented quite nicely by the turquoise and silver.
And to top off the weekend, before flying home from Phoenix, we got to see the Giants beat the Diamondbacks. Woohoo!
