Last night we stayed in Winslow, AZ. You may know Winslow from such songs as "Take it Easy" by the Eagles.  We spent the night at the La Posada Hotel, which is an incredible place and pretty much the only thing happening in the town.

The hotel is unusual, historic and charming. We ended up in a wonderful room, spacious with a king size bed, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. A hot bath was a great way to end the day, and it was very much needed because the windows at the hotel were paper thin and let in the cold like an air conditioner.

We also ended our day with a gourmet meal from "Sonic: America's Drive In" because everything else was closed. Their strawberry-banana smoothie was actually not that bad!  Eric enjoyed their cheeseburger, onion rings, popcorn chicken and pretty much whatever else was on the menu -- he's a true connoisseur of gourmet food.

We ate breakfast at the Turquoise Room, La Posada's restaurant. Hannah had the Green Chile Eggs (no ham) and Eric had the Boilermaker, which was a baked egg with veggies, bacon and potatoes. Yum! Eliza was a bit cranky (she was tired), so Eric and I had to eat our breakfast tag-team style.

After breakfast, we took some pictures of Eliza in various places around the hotel.  We like the one of her in front of the train tracks and in front of the La Posada Entrance.  Hopefully one day she'll look at these photos and think to herself, "God my parents were corny."

On our way out of town, we forgot to "stand on the corner", but it will always be waiting for us if we ever come back.
