We have been enjoying  Arizona this last week.   We started in Sedona; we were there for Resurrection Sunday.    We were able to stay in a Condo at the Wyndham, which, I believe is a "Time Share" Resort, but which can be rented without owning a timeshare. It provided 2 bedrooms, Kitchen, family room and laundry.  It is a wonderful way to go as a family.  Whenever we travel anywhere, I always check out the VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) site, to see what is available, and it is often what we end up booking, because you can rent a house or condo with all that you need for a family, usually at a price comparable to the amount of rooms you need at a hotel; but you end up with so much more room and a kitchen to cook in, which makes the trip less expensive, because you can cook instead of eat out all the time. Above is our Condo on the top far right, and below is a view from our balcony. We had a wonderful time there, the kids swam, we explored, went to "Slide Rock" played games down at the main lobby game room.  I think I could have easily stayed a month. Some of this trip has been for business, but to be able to spend time with Marie and Jon and our little grandsons Zane and Ezra here in Sedona, turned this into a most wonderful holiday.

Buddies and brothers.

I didn't have my setting right on some of the Red Rock pictures…. but I had to post them any way… they are all so beautiful.
