Phoenix trip - Part 2

While in Phoenix, Graham just loved playing with all the gravel in the backyard:
Ahhh... the boy and his trucks!
I did try to get the two boys to sit awhile together. I'm glad Graham didn't mind putting his arm around Charlie!
Like Graham, Charlie is now scooting himself to the corner of the crib when he sleeps:
 But unlike Graham, he has yet to love bath time!
And oh! We had our first babysitter for Charlie! He finally drank from the bottle!  It wasn't much but at least he didn't go too hungry.
When it was finally time to leave Phoenix, we decided to drive instead of fly.  
We stopped in Flagstaff - which is about 3 hours away on Day 1.  Charlie's cheeks were so red - probably from the elevation change:
And on Day 2 - it was about 500 miles from Flagstaff to Tucumcari, NM.  Graham had more than one Happy Meal on the trip:
Our minivan hit 100,000 miles!
And Graham read his big book:
And we got suckered into buying another bulldozer for Graham, although this one did keep him occupied for most of Day 3 too - which was another 500 miles from Tucumcari to Tulsa.
And with so many pictures of Graham, here is just one of Charlie. It was rather difficult to take pictures of Charlie since he was facing the other way in his carseat right behind me.  And here is one of those rare moments when he was actually quiet!
