Day 7- Boot Hill Graveyard and Arriving in Phoenix

Let me start with MAN, does the sun come up early out here.  The boys are all awake before 6 am local time.  David and Hunter started their morning with a walk through the quiet streets of Tombstone at 5 A.M.  We ate some breakfast and walked up to Boothill Graveyard.  

This sign made me laugh out loud! 
 They love to point out the cactus and surprisingly, only Hunter has been pricked and only one time.  For the most part, they are listening about keeping their hands off of the cacti.
The graves of the McLaury brothers from the gunfight at the O.K. Corral are buried here. 
There were also some funny tombstones! 

 City Hall in Tombstone.
After our brief morning in Tombstone, we packed up the camper and headed to Phoenix.  We did have a dead battery at the campground, so they had to jump us off.   I did not do my best work ever as the wing man because I was listening to Google Maps and it took us a longer way.  David was threatening to fire me.
This is the view from our camper.  The lighting in this picture wasn't great, but the scenery was awesome! 
After dinner, we made homemade ice cream in a ball that has to be thrown around and shaken for about 20 minutes.  Some of it still wouldn't set up because of the heat, but we will be trying this again when we get to cooler temperatures.

The boys spend a good chunk of the evening riding their bikes around the campsites and playing with all kinds of toys.  It was a much needed low key day and we were all in bed by 8:30 p.m.
