Quilt With Us

Good morning-

We just returned from a fantastic trip. We flew to Phoenix on Thanksgiving day to spend with dear friends. After three days we traveled to Santa Fe, stopping at the National Petrified forest. The beauty of the scenery in New Mexico and Az was awesome. Every ten miles , it seemed to change. We were in heaven shopping in Santa Fe. We collect American Indian art. After blowing our budget, we continued on to northern NM to the Navajo Dam. My father worked on the building of this dam 60 years ago, but has never seen the finished product. It is now a beautiful state park. Our next stop was Sedona,AZ. What a gorgeous area. Breath taking views. We then traveled to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. What an awesome sight. It makes you want to sing America the Beautiful or recite poetry. It was a great time to visit, because not many visitors. It snowed overnight and that just brought on another look! We saw eagles soaring and elk within a few feet. Onto the skywalk, wished we had not bothered. They make you put cameras and your purse in lockers, because they have their own photographers that want to sell you a package. Not the impressive part of the canyon to begin with. Our last stop was Vegas. We spent one day at Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. What a feat that was to construct. We actually were going to a conference. That's what spurred on this trip. We were there with many research colleagues so decided since it's our year to celebrate 45 years of marriage we would let Elvis to the honors. What an absolute ball we had along with our friends. This was a flawless trip and we made many new memories. 

We want to wish all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and 2019 Blessings

What a great trip you had. The Grand Canyon is so amazing... any time of year. It is hard to really understand the beauty and vastness of it until you are there. Sedona and all the red rock is quite spectacular too. What a fun trip.

Sounds like a perfect trip!  Congratulations on celebrating your 45th, and finding the most wonderful way to celebrate.  You are setting the bar pretty high for the rest of us!

I'm glad you had such a wonderful trip--and especially the "trip" down the aisle again. The Grand Canyon certainly lives up to it's name.

Pam I enjoyed this post with pictures. Also congratulation on your 45th anniversary. I was in Hawaii on my 25th anniversary. Soon after I took a trip to divorce court. Not sure which trip I enjoyed the most. lol

Sounds like a fantastic trip!  I really enjoyed historic Santa Fe when I was there a couple of years ago.  Congratulations on renewing those wedding vows.  

From cold, snow-covered Nebraska.  (makes you want to turn around and head back this direction, don't it?)  ;)

What a wonderful trip you had Pam.  I'm so happy you saw Sedona. It really is a mystical place.

Pam, what an awesome, incredible trip for you and your hubby and to celebrate your 45th anniversary with renewed vows. We spend 3-4 months in AZ, Jan-April, and have seen some of the things that you saw. The beauty of dessert and cities are spectacular and we try to see new things each year. It's history is fantastic. So glad that you had such a great time. Memories of a lifetime. Have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!!! Hugs to you and Gary.
