I've had this in the back of my mind that we were going to Phoenix next week. Ron has a convention to cover there. But I had to get lesson plans ready -- Monday, I'll meet with the sub. I had to get my work ready for my lesson for my grad class. I've still got a bit more to do on that, but it's almost finished and I've started thinking about going to Phoenix! I'm getting just a little excited. It's been five years (maybe six) since we've been. Last time, the boys were on spring break and we went to Phoenix first -- visited some archeological mounds and the zoo and went to museums. Then we went to the Grand Canyon. We stayed there and got snowed into the park. That was fun. We could hardly see the canyon because the cloud cover was -- well, it was in the canyon. It was late April and hot as the dickens in Phoenix so we thought it would be warm at the Grand Canyon. We stopped at a Walmart on the way there and got whatever winter clothes they had left. I'm sure we looked like refugees. We'll only be there for a few days this time since it's not attached to a break, and there are no kids to take since they are both grown now.
