I don't recommend that you try this unless traffic is light and you absolutely cannot contain yourself.
We spent the night in Lake Havasu and enjoyed a rousing chorus of "London Bridges Falling Down" while we drove over the London Bridge. (Did you know there are actually about 7 verses to this song? And if you are a three year old all of them contain the word "poopie".)
As some of you know who read my earlier post, I have been knitting my daughter a sweater to match her doll's sweater. I finished the shoulders in San Diego and am working on the sleeves as we travel through the desert. I wanted my daughter to show progress on the sweater at each of the sites we encounter.
Here she is at noon in front of a fountain in Lake Havasu with the London Bridge in the background. Just one and 1/4 sleeves left to go.
And look where we ended up this evening just before sunset. Doesn't this just take your breath away?
What a Grand Canyon it is and what an amazing country we live in. My moments of awe were interrupted by trying to explain to my six year old the wonders of our Maker and trying to keep my three year old from meeting hers. I did however find a moment to snap my model in her sweater.
One sleeve complete and 1/2 to go.
The last space of my blog posts on this trip, I will reserve for nuggets from my husband's vast resources of knowledge, wit and boredom. This is a direct quote from today after he saw what he thought were buzzards circling in the desert: "There was a midget that died in the desert. Noone knew it until they saw the hummingbird circling overhead."
