Tucson: Day 1

As always, day 1 is typically just known as "traveling day". When you get up at 4am and don't really stop moving until like two in the afternoon, it tends to wear you out. And it doesn't help when yours truly isn't exactly a huge fan of traveling; my 5-second attention span tends to hinder such things. However, this time wasn't so bad since Denise brought her portable DVD player. So we watched Office Space and played some card game that I just learned and don't know the name of.

At the rental car place, what was described on Expedia as a "midsize, Toyota Corolla or similar" somehow turned into a PT Cruiser... yeah, no thanks. So after 10 minutes of the saleswoman trying desperately yet fruitlessly to talk me into upgrading to a Dodge Charger, I paid for a small upgrade to a Chrysler Sebring.

The rest of the afternoon was spent having lunch with my mom at the Quail Creek Grill and checking in at the hotel. Later on, we met up with my dad, my brother Ryan and his wife Kate at a pizza place called Sauce up in Tucson.

That was all the excitement we could handle for one day!
