Also, what would you suggest we try to do/see while we are there?
Rockin' mama to Allison (9), Asher (5) and Alethea (3), head over heels in love with my sexy husband, Tony.
The Imax movie in the town outside of the South Grand Canyon showed an interesting movie about Powell and the exploration of the Canyon. It was worth seeing (not sure about your young DC though).
Phoenix has several museums that sounded good, but we were there on July 4th and they were closed. Sigh.
BTW, July was insanely hot in Arizona. I am from the south and thought so. When are you planning on going?
Have fun planning!
Mom to John (age 11), James (age 9) & Katherine (age 5)
Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.
Little Colorado River Canyon (it's really close to the grand canyon, just as beutiful, but more of a road less traveled kind of place)
The Painted Desert/Petrified Forest
There's a tone of stuff for kids in the Phoenix area, The Children's Museum is always a great hit for kids of any age.
depending on how far south and what your kids are interested in, you can see reenactments in tombstone
we love the town of Bisbe
