Sedona Birthday Trip

Dave and I headed up to Sedona for a night to celebrate my 30th birthday. That's right, I'm 30 now! We had a great time and the only real problem was that the trip wasn't long enough! We stayed at a cute bed and breakfast with a great view of the beautiful red rock. Dave had planned for us to go on a two hour horseback ride which I was so excited for but it actually turned into an 8 hour adventure! It started with a two hour jeep tour (which I really could have done without), then we were picked up and taken to another place for our two hour horseback ride and then we were dropped off at a cowboy dinner/theatre show at the Blazin' M Ranch. It was a great time but a very long day. The company Dave did it through was called "A Day in the West," but he didn't know it would literally be a whole DAY! I guess he didn't read everything that was included.

My horse's name was George and Dave's was Sonny. They were best friends. Apparently, they always go on the trail together because they need Sonny to keep George from getting too far behind! I love horses and anytime I get on one the whole world seems to be at peace for me and there isn't a care in the world. The only present that could have been better was a horse of my own. One day...

The Blazin' M Ranch had some cute stores to shop in and lots of great places for some photo ops.

It's not easy to get a good picture of yourself using an iphone!

Thanks Dave for planning such a wonderful trip and thanks Bob and Marta for watching the kids for us!
