Day 3 - Sedona

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Woke up early again, but decided to read in bed. Wasn't ready to get up just yet!! Took a shower and got ready to leave for Sedona. We took a beautiful ride. On our way, we found a hike that my DH had read about. So, out we went. It was a gorgeous 6 mile hike (3 hour round trip) along the stream. At one point, my son decided to go across the stream to take a picture and my princess decided to follow. Well, let's just say that it was a bit slippery and she fell in. It would have been ok, but she tried to get up and slipped some more. I thought she was going to go sliding down the stream. She caught herself and all was well. I did think she had hit her head, but it was the camelback that I heard. Thank goodness. That would not have been fun.

After our hike, we got back in the car and made our way into town. It was so beautiful. As we're driving, the forest turns into the Redwoods. How stunning!! We were all so hungry that we decided on some Mexican food. I had a Carne Asada salad with no cheese or tortilla strips and dressing on the side. I did treat myself to some nachos, but not many. Let me just say that I didn't eat breakfast. Not a good idea when you're taking a 3 hour hike. Won't be doing that again. After lunch, we went across the street to the Fudge store. Oh how cruel! I did get a sample of the peanut butter fudge. Heaven!! Walked around a bit, bought the princess the cutest t-shirt and then went back home. Had to stop off at the bike shop because I needed a camelback. Thought we brought me one, but didn't. Now, I have a nice, new one (yellow, my favorite color!).

Relaxed a bit and then, went across the street to watch an All Star Little League baseball game. Just can't stay away from the sports. Came back home and made dinner. Then, we all played a game of Balderdash. That is one fun game. Now, I'm going to relax and figure out what's on tap for tomorrow.

Until then-

    What a perfect day. My family cannot live without camelbacks on our hikes either! They are a life-saver. That is super scary about DD slipping in the river. Looking back at some of our crazy hikes, I'm amazed that all of the childrens' more serious injuries occurred close to home! Love peanutbutter fudge and Mexican food! Nice Blog!
