While Eric had to get back to Hawaii, Connor, Pearce and I stayed in Arizona to spend more time with family. It was Kelsey's birthday weekend, and Jane made creme brule french toast for breakfast. Kelsey decided she really wanted to spend the weekend camping in Sedona.
While we packed up the camping gear and food, Connor swam.
Mostly Jumping rather than swimming.
Driving into Sedona.
Our first stop in Sedona was to cool off at the natural water slides. Walking up to the slide rock we stopped to enjoy the beauty. Wendi and Pearce.
At slide rock. I love that Pearce is trying to wink.

Connor builds the fire. S'mores anyone?
We all fit in the tent!

On the way back to Phoenix, we stopped in Pine to visit Uncle Jay and Aunt Tammy who are building their cabin.
