Desert Camping

Us Arizonian's [well who knew that was a real word] are limited on the things we can do outdoors. But we deal pretty well with what we have. Especially this time of year when the weather is perfect! But you better hurry and enjoy it cause you blink and 120 degrees the next day! We'll call it desert camping. You pack up your tent, chairs, snack (lots of them), burgers, the dogs, and the quads, and you don't have to drive far to find a good spot of desert. Then you sit back in the shade of tree and drink IBC Cream Soda and life is good...

We left Friday night with the puppies (they were lucky enough to join) and met my mom, Coco, Alec and their friends, and my Uncle B and his kids near Florence. Just a reminder to drivers: Please do not pick up hitchhikers. Thank you. So there we stayed. The weather was perfect! And the puppies did great! They enjoyed cow pies and bones and howled with the coyotes. They even got a turn on the quads. Not quite sure if they enjoyed that though... This was the first time Curtis and I got to really use our tent, instead of just pretend in our family room. We were pretty excited about it.

So we found a good spot to hang out after a 15 min quad ride. It was lovely. Right under a railroad bridge and the Gila River. And we set up a rope swing that was pretty dang sweet! And we all promised we would be back come summer time to swing into the water. You can tell we enjoyed ourselves pretty thoroughly... 

What is it about a fire that you can sit and stare at it for quite some time?

Curtis "looking cool"

Do not try this at home. We had professionals around just incase...

Uncle B testing it...

And Allison was first!

Followed by Uncle B


Me, I may look like I'm enjoying it, but I was pretty scared.


Curtis got a big push.

And well, two ropes meant a chicken fight.

Good babies.

And we all went home a pound of dirt heavier.
