Today was spent in the beautiful town of Sedona, with our friends who first introduced us to the world of RVing. They have spent the last six months traveling in their RV and are heading back to the Las Vegas area. Being that we are within a couple hours of each other here in Arizona, we decided to meet in the beautiful town of Sedona. Prior to COVID ravishing our world, Noah and his little buddy, Armin spent a lot of time together. Ever since we set a date to meet, Alex and I decided to make this super fun day a surprise for Noah. We woke up extra early and made the hour drive to Sedona. Our meet time with our friends was set for 10:30. We decided to arrive a couple hours early to grab breakfast at the Pump House Station and visit the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park. Sedona is an all around gorgeous town that attracts over 4 million visitors a year. In addition to it’s beauty, people come from far and wide to experience Sedona’s spiritual energy and vortices.
After our visit to the Peace Park, we headed to Sunset Park for Noah’s surprise. From the moment the boys were reunited, the day was filled with pure FUN! We let the kiddos play on the playground while Alex and I caught up with Ash and Cici. From the park, we headed to the Tlaquepaque Arts & Craft Village. We thoroughly enjoyed our time strolling through the shops and admiring all the “Day of the Dead” decorations.
Our last stop of the day was Slide Rock State Park. This is a must see if you are ever in the Sedona area, especially if you have kids. The entrance to the park is only $10 and the amount of enjoyment you will experience is worth way more than the fee to get in. Beyond the slippery rocks and insanely beautiful views, the kids found a small, half built stone house nestled against the red rocks. They actually played in the house more than the water. I don’t blame them though, the water was pretty cold. I guess that’s to be expected being that it’s November 2nd. The temperature today was in the 80’s though which made our perfect day even more perfect.
