Rock Art

It was a really busy week at work and I had to work extra hours.  And I've been feeling a little tired and on the verge of getting another sinus infection.  So today, my day off, I needed to relax and get out of the house.  We went to the Arabian Library.  This is a really cool building, to get to the entry you are walking thru a series of passages that resemble Canyon de Chelly.

And here are Patrick and Maggie in front of one of the tall walls.

After getting some lunch at a Balkan Bakery on 16th St and Bell Rd. (visit if you can and buy some Burek, you will thank me for it) we headed for the Rock Art Center located off I-17 and Deer Valley Rd.  David is working on an assignment for a magazine and he needed archeological sites/ruins etc. I am certain his photos are far better than mine, but I wasn't the one who had an assignment. 

While David and Patrick were taking pictures, Maggie and I found a picnic table and she had a little picnic with her 'friends', Dora the Explorer and Scooby Doo figurines.  Yeah I know, what a combo.

Inside the building there was a kid's section and the ceiling was some kind of matted metal, but you could see the reflections from the room.  I tried to take an interesting photo with Maggie in it.  Can you find the little pink girl?

And here they are, my family at the end of a fun day.
