Jeff and Nathan and I just got back from a great vacation in Arizona. It was a whirlwind trip where we traveled from place to place seeing so many wonderful sights along the way. We flew into Phoenix and drove to Show Low where our good friends Corey and Kim Mortimer moved last year to serve in ministry there. We stayed there for 2 days and visited the Apache Indian Reservation and hiked to the rim of the White Mountains. All of us then traveled together to Flagstaff where we played at Slide Rock - a natural waterpark - and hiked into the Grand Canyon. I can't say enough about the awe and wonder of the Grand Canyon; it was breathtaking. We all went down to Sedona to do a little shopping. The Mortimers had to go home while Jeff and Nathan and I stayed at a nice resort in Sedona for 2 days. We were able to relax by the pool and do a little sight-seeing around Sedona. Finally, we drove back to Phoenix for our flight home.
It was a great trip.
Below are a few of the awesome pictures from Arizona.

Hi Mandy and Jeff and Nathan
Glad you had a good time in Arizona. Uncle Jerry and I went to the Grand Canyon a few years ago and I was in awe of it's beauty. What a sight. Take care of each other and enjoy. Love Phyllis
