v101.jpg: Here's me with some local foliage in the bright sun.
fredhows.jpg: This is me in Fred's abode, giving a little "I'm here!" wave to everyone at home to prove that I arrived safely.
lickcake.jpg: We decided to make a cake. This is me eating leftover batter.
fmelon.jpg: We also decided to have watermelon as a snack. Refreshments such as this are necessary in a place that's a big fat desert!
cofpot.jpg: We decided to go to Sedona on my second day in Phoenix. Halfway there we stopped at this "historical Fred place": The Coffee Pot Restaurant, where they have omelets you can order by the number!
cofpot2.jpg: Their coffee is also very good. You can see that this is me before I had some.
viuchrch.jpg: The view from the church.
frdchrch.jpg: Now it's Fred's turn to be in a picture.
valishad.jpg: I'm in the shade of the rocks, with a beautiful view behind me.
ironsk.jpg: The Iron Skillet Restaurant (another "historic Fred place"), where Fred took me for lunch on our way driving to Las Vegas!
movestar.jpg: This is me in the hotel room at our Vegas hotel, the Mirage. Don't I look like I'm trying to be a movie star or something? I was just wearing that cape thing because I was freezing.
outcold.jpg: After seeing Penn & Teller that night, Fred crashed pretty hard. I thought it was funny so I snapped it.
sunhat.jpg: We spent the next morning by the pool. This is me before we found a place to sit, in my sundress and hat.
shade.jpg: Here's me once we found a spot to sit in the shade.
frdbathe.jpg: Fred enjoying the sun.
skirty.jpg: In the middle of changing positions, I suppose--you can see my cute skirt thing.
sunwrite.jpg: It's not like I could ever actually let myself take a vacation. Here I'm writing by the pool.
kidswim.jpg: Fred in the kiddie pool!
suity1.jpg: My newest bathing suit on display.
suity2.jpg: Goofy pose after I realized that this was, in fact, a photo shoot.
viu.jpg: The view from our hotel room was wonderful.
quarks.jpg: After the pool and showers, we spent the evening at the Star Trek Experience thing--first we ate in the themed restaurant, Quark's. (I had a hamborger. With no borg.)
voyager.jpg: They take a promotional picture of you when you go do the rides, and then you can get it edited into a photo of one of the Star Trek crews. I chose Voyager 'cause I used to watch it with my college roomies and I know the most about that series. Look, I'm next to Janeway! Hopefully Tuvok won't goose me!
comesit.jpg: This was cute. In a store they had this groovy seat, but don't I look like I want someone to come sit by me?
ok.jpg: Luckily someone offered to take our picture, so we could have both of us in it!
winner1.jpg: Fred had some small winnings at craps. He's wearing my lucky necklace and standing by a camel. . . .
stompddr.jpg: Haven't you seen enough pictures of my ass on this video game?
sherby.jpg: Afterwards we got refreshing ice cream. I had orange sherbet.
suity3.jpg: Next day: Pool again. Me in a different suit, with a different hairdo, writing the same book.
fredrag.jpg: Fred at the pool with a dragon sculpture!
beddy.jpg: We went up to our room and before we took showers I was sitting on the bed like this and it made for a cute picture, I suppose.
nudlface.jpg: We ate at a place called The Noodle Kitchen. I guess Fred is quite happy about it!
fishnudl.jpg: Fred's fishy noodles!
mirgard.jpg: The Mirage had a garden inside that was really pretty, there was bamboo and other cool vegetataion.
vensky2.jpg: At the Venetian Hotel, they had a ceiling painted like a sky. Fred took several photos of it but here's just one.
wedboat.jpg: You can take gondola rides. While we were waiting for ours, we saw a special gondola that is decorated for if you want to get married in the boat! We actually saw someone doing it! This is what the bridal boat looks like.
gondola1.jpg: The other people in our gondola were kind enough to take our picture with the gondolier chick.
gondola2.jpg: And here is the professional photo of us in the boat.
vensing.jpg: We saw these dressed up singers walking around at the Venetian too.
fntn.jpg: Me by a lovely fountain.
fntn2.jpg: A nice one outside too.
fntn3.jpg: We even got both of us by it.
bratwrst.jpg: Fred had a bratwurst and I was kind of fascinated by its disgustingness, so I took this picture.
vegakara.jpg: Finally, karaoke in Vegas. Sorta blurry. I sang Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know."
merm.jpg: These cool mermaids attracted my attention, so I posed sorta like one and had Fred snap it.
buffet2.jpg: The breakfast buffet was one of the best things. Here's us after partaking.
hoov1.jpg: Hoover Dam, baby!
indesign.jpg: They said that at Hoover Dam they have a lot of Native American symbols to honor the tribes of the area.
gener.jpg: Fred with some Dam generators.
woodam.jpg: Woo, it's the Dam! I looked right down into there!
angely3.jpg: There were some really inspiring angel-looking things around. Fred took some of their pictures.
cappy.jpg: They had a star map and stuff, and this is me standing at the zodiac spot of Capricorn.
taury.jpg: And there's Fred on Taurus.
hoov4.jpg: Touristy picture of me at Hoover Dam.
hoov6.jpg: And more of me at the Dam.
1foot1.jpg: There's me at the place where you can put one foot in Nevada and one foot in Arizona!
1foot2.jpg: Fred did it too!
hiscaler.jpg: A lot of the people who died making this dam had the position of "High Scaler." So this is a monument to them. It's inspiring.
winner2.jpg: We won a handful of quarters in a slot machine. Call it exciting.
frdbnsai.jpg: Fred's new bonsai tree we got my last day in Phoenix.
There's no pictures from when I got on a plane and went home, but if you're curious that's what I did after this and a night's sleep. Hooray!
