Navajo Tacos

Page is located near the Arizona/Utah border and is surrounded by a ridiculous amount of natural beauty. It is called the Hub of the Grand Circle because of it's proximity to Zions Nat'l Park, Bryce Canyon, Arches NP, the Grand Canyon, and of course Lake Powell.. This corner of the world is not only home to some phenomenal desert scenery, it is also the home of the Navajo Nation.

As a nod to this part of our unique Page culture, there was a Navajo Taco lunch organized in the City Park. I was SUPER excited about this event, in fact, I am sure this was my #1 on my "to attend" list. Anyone that has had an authentic Navajo Taco doesn't need to wonder at this sentiment. There was also live entertainment at the picnic--drummers and dancers that performed for us.

There was a dance that everyone can join in as they trot in a chain. Gabe grabbed Jackson and Jebb and joined in.

Everyone brought shade canopies and we all relaxed and enjoyed seeing old friends. It was great hanging out in a venue like that because the kids could run around while their parents remembered their good old days. John loves a good Navajo Taco and drum show, so he was a happy camper.

It was of course a great opportunity to get some group shots...
