Took the babies to the North end a few sunny weeks ago, back when it was still warm and sunny up here. For a break from the strollers, we enjoyed the lovely grass where I-93 used to loom overhead, thanks to the Big Dig. Amazing what 14.6 billion dollars can do for urban development!
Ryan seems to be missing his pants, but tries to pull off the look too, anyway:
Needless to say, both babies had pulled off the glasses and were chewing on them a mere few seconds after capturing this.

No, no, I'm not delusional, I do understand that he just likes the piano because it makes noise when he bangs on it. But he has been enjoying it so much lately that I thought it was time for him to have his own seat, you know, so we can play 'heart and soul' together. He does the top part.

Or for that matter, like this:
Zach putting up with the driving tour...
well...sort of. In the early part of the days...He'd reach breaking point around 4 each afternoon of driving and would then spend the next 45 minutes screaming. But in fairness, he did sprout 2 sharp little teeth that week.
All of these pictures were taken from a moving car through the windshield, despite my better judgement, driving through 1) hills north of Flagstaff, 2) just east of the Grand Canyon, and 3) the bizarre rock formations around Sedona. Yes, Justin, dead bugs can also be seen blurred in the foreground on #2.

Need I explain?
Yes, it was grand.
Kudos to those of you who've hiked down and then up - not sure I'll ever be in shape enough for that - but we did enjoy the lovely flat path along the south rim!
Couple more pics:
(That is, I have about 200 photos from the Grand Canyon alone, but I tried to limit my selection to a my favorites.)

Overlooking the Sunset Crater in Wapatki National Monument, near Flagstaff - 1000 years since eruption, so you'd think there would be a few more trees, no?

We spent the last week in Flagstaff, AZ with the Wades, where Mr. Z spent a lot of time watching in jealous fascination as Ryan crawled in circles around him - stealing his toys (well, till he discovered the joy of hair pulling). Here we are, waiting for the hostess to seat us for dinner...at 5.
More pictures later as I sort through them.
