Four Corners Monument

          On our way home from the Reunion in Arkansas, we had a few extra days and so decided to take it home slowly and so we stopped in several fun places to see the sights around Utah.  One of those crazy things how if you live somewhere you don't go and see the places in your own state.  When we spent the summer in Ireland, we met so many natives who had never gone to see most of the things we made a concerted effort to go and visit...such as the blarney stone. 
            One of the places we stopped at was at four corners.  This is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.  It was pretty much in the middle of nowhere and it was kind of off the beaten path.  It was super hot so we didn't spend more than an hour there...and there was a long line to take your picture at the actual four corners spot!  Most of our time was spent shopping and seeing all of the beautiful jewelry and crafts on sale by Navajo artisans.  I bought Tory a cute bracelet, and the boys chose slingshots shaped like a bison and a bear.  They had a great time playing with them the rest of the trip.
