Arizona Adventures

Boy oh boy do I love me some alliteration. I guess that’s pretty much a given…Make Something Monday, Writing Prompt Wednesday…. Speaking of which, today is supposed to be Make Something Monday, it being Monday and all, but Evelyn and I took a last minute trip to Arizona to enjoy the last little bit of summer and I haven’t made anything except waves in the pool. (See what I did there?)

So today you’re going to get my travel diaries and I call them

Arizona Adventures

Last Thursday afternoon, Evelyn and I hopped on a plane at the Provo airport and hightailed it to Mesa, Arizona. That hour and a half long journey taught me that gone are the days of a relaxing flight where I can read a book, take a nap, or stare off into nothingness wondering when the plane is going to land. Now my hour is spent wrangling a baby who desperately wants to be crawling down the aisle of the plane to meet some new friends. Only she can’t. Because the flight attendants aren’t down with that, yo.
