I know its been awhile, but I missed your wrap up. Very nice. Taking the time to make good vacation memories is so important! We did some family vacations as a kid, but I don't remember them being much fun. Think National Lampoon's Vacation minus the dead aunt and Wally World. That is one of the things we tried to do with our boys - make memories, and now they value that for their families - makes me proud.

Mexican food in Phoenix - We loved a chain - Macayo's. Mostly due to the queso dip - white cheese and cream cheese recipe - Yummo! What side of town are you staying at? I know of a good but hot hole in the wall place. We also liked Mi Amigos - great Bloody Mary Bar on weekend mornings - and Sand Bar - ok for lunch or early evening with kids - they have a little man made beach in the outdoor bar area, but lots of seating inside. Another local chain we liked was Aunt Chilada's.

Oh, and there is an interesting tour of a mansion built into the rock by an eccentric who thought he was dying of TB - fun quirky tour if you have the time - Mystery Castle - http://visitphoenix.com/things-to-do...e/details.aspx they have odd hours but it's worth an hour if you are near there - we lived near it on the other side of South Mountain.

Since this just popped up and your ticker says only 5 more days until you leave for the next trip, this is a great time to say:

Have a fantastic time with quiet babies, lovely children, perfect weather, marvelous adventures and just a plain good time!!

Thanks for the recommendations! We are staying on the north side of the city. The hotel is actually right next to North Mountain park, if that helps. I found a bbq place and wood-fired pizza place that look promising as well.

Sounds cool! I think we probably won't have the time on this trip, but I'll keep it in mind for the future.

Thank you Magdalene! From your lips to God's ears.

Right now we're having that "Are we biting off more than we can chew?" moment.

Thanks for explaining! Great way to track the trips. Fun about the Cheesecake Factories, also.

Our trip is pretty much happening because of a desire to get to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but we have many other things we are adding before and after. We would be going to many of the same states, so it is quite helpful. Would love to get to Lynn's Paradise Cafe, but it would not be in our route.

I know your newest adventure is coming very soon. Have a fantastic time!

Thank you everyone! Still hoping traveling like this with a baby wasn't a stupid idea.

Your map is missing pins in Wisconsin, you know, just North of Chicago

Have a great time on your upcoming trip!

I'm not going to lie to you.

Traveling with a baby stupid idea and don't let anybody tell you it isn't.

But... been there done that. Gotta break them into the fun of a family vacation at some point in their life. I hope you guys are having a great trip!
