Tombstone, AZ

Hubby and I woke up super early with the kids, and we were both feeling completely exhausted!  I need to figure out how to get my kids to sleep in.  Anyway, we were trying to think of a way to get some rest, and we laughingly thought that if only we could strap them into car seats for a couple hours...and thus the plan to visit Tombstone, AZ was born.  

We got everyone ready, and then loaded up and drove.  It was surprisingly peaceful.  The kids read, or play DS, or watch movies.  The smallest two napped and relaxed.  As we were driving and almost there, J said "Dad, do you think they will have the real Boot Hill?" and about 5 minutes later we drove up to it.  It was cool!  Such an interesting little town.  I am so glad we took the time to make the drive and visit.  The temperatures were surprisingly more cool there than here in Phoenix too!

We had a lot of fun seeing the old west sites.  And now for the picture-pa-looza . . . I apologize in advance . . . but I love taking pictures.

Drinking a little sarsparilla . . . they all thought it was yummy!
