We planned to spend 2.5 days in Flagstaff, Arizona, playing in the snow and relaxing. That turned into 2 days, because we couldn’t get our lazy butts up and out of bed the day after Disney… but it was still a great way to end the trip. 🙂
When we arrived in Flagstaff around 9 p.m., it was 12 degrees. WHOA! Time to bundle up, for sure!
I didn’t take my “real camera” when we went sledding at the SnowBowl… that would have been an accident waiting to happen. 🙂 I got lots of iPhone pictures, though!
The next morning, we went to the Grand Canyon. The main road into the South Rim had just opened that day, but all the smaller roads are still completely blocked with snow. It was again super cold, but we had a great time exploring!

Thanks, random tourist guy, for the family photo!
What should one crazy family do on the last night of vacation?
Well, I can tell you what THIS crazy family did. 🙂 We absolutely destroyed our room making the most epic of all epic blanket forts, and we ordered pizza, and we ate LOTS of candy, and we stayed up late watching movies like, “A Knight’s Tale”. And we hugged a lot, and we talked about our favorite parts of vacation.
Ah, headed east, toward home. 🙂
Thank you all so much, so VERY much, for your prayers and well wishes and Instagram likes throughout our two week adventure. This was such a blessing for our family… we really needed this time together. And thank you for caring enough about us to read through the recap!
We’ll be blogging three days next week, and all three of them will be snowy and wonderful. Way more snow than when we were in Flagstaff, for sure. 🙂 Get excited, and come back to see what we created with some of our favorite clients!
