Ashley's Scary Monsters!!

I am a kindergarten teacher and these are my kiddos making their scariest faces!

Crown King

Traffic Jam

Arizona Sunset

Two weeks ago we ventured out to a little town in the Bradshaw Mountains called Crown King. We camped in the desert above Lake Pleasant with our friends Dan & Jen. After a good breakfast that Dan scrambled up for us, we departed on the 25 mile 4x4trail that slowly snakes upward to roughly 6000 feet in elevation. About half way up we ran into a weekend "traffic jam" and had to patiently wait our turn to try the fun stuff with the Jeep. Upon arrival, we ate lunch in Arizona's oldest saloon and then began our departure back to the desert floor.

July 4th Weekend in the White Mountains

We spent the 4th in the White Mountains with Ryan & Cam and their family, Mom & Dad, Grandma Bluth, Richard & Bailey and the Alvey's. It was awesome to get out of the heat and enjoy some cooler weather and some green pines. The high temperature was in the low 80's ond we even got some rain. We wanted to sit by the fire but the rain wasn't agreeing so Doug Alvey provided us with some umbrellas and we supplied the smores.......mmmmmm smores!
