The campground in Flagstaff was perfect-it was clean, close to the bathrooms, perfect weather, and a full moon to enjoy the night sky by. We got in later than we thought so we ordered Pizza Hut-easy and mmm mmm good! Rich went for his run this morning and Tricia and Kim went for their walk. We are staying in Flagstaff for 3 days on our way back and we are looking forward to it because it was a cute little town with shops, coffee houses and a train which goes to the Grand Canyon there. It wouldn't be a McKeon vacation if something didn't happen and Rich had his car started and then about 5 minutes later...it just died. He put it on the battery charger and all was good...we are all soo connected it's not surprising that we all haven't had dead batteries. The drive was beautiful today and shortly after we started down the highway, Rich and Bob, both hit a 4x4 in the middle of the highway, but all was good-no damage. We stopped right before the desert and had lunch in a little park that was perfect in the shade...temp was 100 degrees but no humidity! Along the way today Charlie and Hayden kept us looking at the mountains and pointing out dirt devils...whirls of dirt in the desert. Later, Aunt Kim had everyone playing I SPY, which was challanging because everything in the desert is either brown or green. We made it to Barstow, CA around 5 and had camp set up by 5:30. Dinner was spaghetti and salad. Charlie and Hayden swam in the pool for a bit. It's very windy here-gusts up to 30 mph. It's late now and I will finish uploading the rest of the pictures tomorrow.
Tomorrow we will be in Carslbad, Ca. We will be meeting up with Pixie, Megan and Maria!!!
