This state proved to be more of a challenge than we thought it would be - there were lots of interesting facts, but not enough to fill out Hayden's word poem. Ah well, we made due.

A - Apache Trail
R - Ruby (ghost town)
I - Independent
Z - Zinc (mining)
O - OK Corral
N - National Parks (Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Saguaro)
A - Arizona

The boys are already looking forward to Texas and The Alamo (with all the talk about Wyatt Earp & Tombstone & The OK Corral, the couldn't believe we couldn't use Alamo as one of our A's)

Bayley is really pushing for a field trip that corresponds to the state of the week. I wish we could have flown the family down to the Grand Canyon for this one...but Bayley said it would be OK if we did it when we hit Nevada. Gee, thanks. I'll work on that.
