J enjoying the ride - he chattered like this until he fell asleep, then once he woke up...more chattering! So much more fun than crying!
J could have run through this field all day...if it wasn't for all those darn nasty HUGE red ants - OUCH.
Just some of the surrounding mountains.
Yes, the sky really is that blue. Amazing!

Family picture time! Nice hair, mom!
J loved running up and down this deck.
Dada and J.
After the park we stopped at the Main Street Grille, which is supposedly haunted. *cue spooky music* I am happy to report that I went to the bathroom by myself and did not see any ghosts. Phew!!
J coloring away and having a great time!
Yes, we sat outside...at 1pm. It was a brisk 87 degrees. Gorgeous!
Shawn's "monster burger" which was huge - notice the massive knife sticking out of it???
J ate his grilled cheese like a champ! (and some broccoli too - alright!)
This was taken 5 minutes from home - J was so done with his carseat. But, he bears the signs of a great trip - dirty, dirty feet, and scratches on his arms and legs from falling...repeatedly.
We'd do that trip again in a heartbeat! It was so much fun and Shawn and I talked about how 'someday' we'd own a second home in Payson that "me and the children" would be sent to during the summer while Shawn slaved away here in Phoenix and came up north for the weekends. That is, of course, if we're still living here when we can afford something like that. Still, sounds dreamy, huh?
