We did have breakfast at home the first few days and I found this scrumptious recipe courtesy of Cathy Zastoupil on Facebook. How can you resist cinnamon, sugar and butter?
And here's what my version looked like (with some missing pieces):

We headed to beautiful Sedona and here you see the girls in front of praying hands at the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

We had lunch at the Cowboy Club and I had some fun with Photoshop combining a photo of Devon's burger with one of the menu.
Oak Creek is a wondrous place and our timing couldn't have been better. The weather was cool in the morning, warming to the mid 70's in the afternoon.

One of my all-time favorite places is Indian Gardens on Highway 89A on the way from Sedona to Flagstaff.
We had breakfast outside accompanied by the sweet sounds of the burbling stream. Isn't this latte almost too beautiful to drink?

Its kitshy-cool decor featured these colorful images along the upper wall.
And the menu really does have 101 varieties of omelettes as well as countless other goodies. Mariah is a little overwhelmed at all the menu options.
When the girls checked in on Foursquare, they saw a message to "try the biscuits" so of course we did - as you can see in the middle of the photo below. And they were right - the biscuits are light, fluffy and delish!

We took many many photos like the one above but my favorite is this weathered tree.
We headed south through Flagstaff and stopped for dinner at Charley's which is part of the historic Weatherford Hotel.
Although our locale was historic, our dinner selections were more on the modern side. For Devon a taco salad, for me a reuben and for Mariah some kind of southwest fry bread tacos.
We headed back to Cave Creek to complete the rest of our itinerary capped off by dinner at El Encanto.
The girls are packing to head back home. We have some great photos and probably a pound or two to show from our travels. But we sure had fun!
