Route 66 to Williams

We traveled along Route 66 to Williams for a day trip exploring Arizona. Dave found a book on Route 66, and we decided to take one of the planned route it illustrated. It was a lot of fun. We hiked a bit on the old Route 66, explored Williams, and saw the Christmas Carol train. We all really enjoy our exploration of Arizona and all it has to offer, see and do.

Today we hung out at the zoo enjoying some unseasonably cool weather. The kids spent much time creating boats out of leaves and floating them down a lazy river.

No More Funk

I have been using a product called Funk Butter as deodorant for over a year. It works very well, but it can be pricey with shipping. I had heard of others making their own deodorant, so I decided to give it a try. My sister gave me a recipe, and it works great. It is so easy and cheap - equal parts baking soda and corn starch with enough coconut oil to make your desired consistency. I added a couple drops of tea tree oil as well. I really like it. I don't stink at all! It even stands up to rowing.
