The beginning of the trip when we were both happy and excited. We started off heading down through Vegas and over the Hoover Dam.

Here we are on historic Route 66. We spent our first night of the trip sleeping in Seligman, AZ. The KOA that we stayed in was right next to some train tracks, and a train went past at least every half hour, needless to say it was a wonderful nights rest ;)
As we headed south to Phoenix we drove through Sedona and stopped at Montezuma Well.
Libby and me by the spring.10best.com. What you do is put the name of the city your visiting and it will give you the ten best attractions, restaurants, and what not. This place was in the top ten attractions of Phoenix, AZ, it's called the Mystery Castle and it is a house that this guy built out of junk, it was kind of cool, but it was so freaking HOT!
Of course we had to stop at the Mesa Temple.
After Phoenix we headed down to Tucson. On the way we stopped at Saguaro National Park.
These cacti were so cool, and they were all over the place. Me and Libby were trying to imitate them.
I think Libby enjoyed seeing me in the can.
We took the train around the studios.
And of course a picture in front of the studios.
Inside the Caverns.
We used the bathrooms that were 755 feet underground.
Hanging out with Summer, Klint, Trace, and Peyton was so much fun. Peyton loved drinking out of mine and Libby's cups. I still think that Summer needs to get Peyton one.
Trace became quick friends with this little Alien.
Doesn't Libby look hot? I should have bought a pair of these, they crack me up!
This is by far the cutest picture that I have ever seen. Look at her the alien is the same size as her. ;)
A picture of us girls.
We spent a couple of days at the park along the Pecos river. The first night we spent feeding the ducks. The second day we spent at this cool wooden park. It was fun playing with the kids, and I loved walking Peyton around.
We also stopped at the Albuquerque temple.
Going up was a lot easier than coming down. It was freaky walking down the stairs.
This was up the first set of stairs. Isn't the waterfall pretty.
Then we went to Garden of the Gods and got lots of pictures. This is the worlds most photographed place.
Pointing to the Kissing Camels.
Then we headed to Denver and stayed with Kim and her kids. The first thing we did was go to the Botanic Gardens. It's a good thing we did this first because it started to rain as we were heading to the Denver Art Museum.
Attractive isn't it?
Libby almost peed her pants because she thought that my advice was hilarious, if she had only listened to me we wouldn't have gotten in trouble for taking water into a museum. Hello they have drinking fountains all over the place!
Denver, CO temple.
Me, Ellie, and Bryce.
A train engine from the Union Pacific.
A memorial on the way from Cheyenne to Laramie.
Libby took a ton of pictures of herself, nothing new of course, so I thought I would share one of them.
I'm in jail again :(
This is the Wyoming Territorial Prison in Laramie, WY.
Libby decided that it was photo shoot time for me.
In Rock Springs hanging with Lucas, Shellie, Legz, and West.
The last day of our trip, I was tired and ornery, and I was making fun of Libby. Don't I look like Libby?
Vernal, UT temple.
Of course a picture next to the big pink dinosaur in Vernal.
A fun trip that marked the beginning of the summer, filled with lots of new places and family. Being stuck with Libby for two weeks was not the best part of the trip, but for the most part it was a lot of fun. I hope that you enjoyed all the pictures. If you want more stories check out my sis's blog in the next few days, I'm sure she'll have lots to say.
