Flagstaff, AZ

Labor day weekend, while my husband was in Colorado picking up his new bike, I decided to head to the mountains. I asked a girlfriend and her daughter to come along for the adventure. We booked one of the last hotel rooms available and started our 3 hour drive.

When we checked into the hotel, they asked if it matter what floor and location of our room. I said it didn't matter. They also asked if the kids liked trains, I said oh yes, they love trains. So, the hotel gave us a room with a view of the train.

Once we got settled into our room, off to McDonald's for a healthy meal. While sitting at McDonald's it started raining and raining and raining. We didn't mind, except the plan was to go to the park to play, that was out of the question. We inquired if the mall had an indoor play area, which it did. It is funny how we drove 3 hours, to go play at the mall. The kids enjoyed playing in the mall.

That night all 5 of us attempted to sleep. The kids slept fine, it was myself and my girlfriend that had the hardest time. Little did I know.....the trains runs every 30 minutes all day and all night. Did I mention the trains blows its horn every 30 minutes, day and night??? So, just as one would get into a good rem cycle, here comes the train blowing it's horn. My girlfriend and I no longer like trains!!!

Sunday morning off the the park, the girls needs some fresh air poisoning. We were there for about 2 hours, before heading back to the desert heat. The girls watched several movies and sang songs on our adventure home. Once we arrived home everyone took a long needed nap.

Flagstaff was definitely an adventure and I would do it again next weekend.
