Spring Break Pt. 1

Let me first say that my camera is dying a slow death; so it's casting a pinkish hue with streaks on all my photo's. I guess I know what I am buying with my tax refund!

Spring break so far has been ideal. I'm really not wanting it to end. We decided not to go anywhere for spring break and just hang around here. So we haven't done a lot, but it's been very relaxing and we've gotten a lot done around the house.

We did make it up to Cave Creek to the Out West Art Fest. Art Festivals are always kinda hit or miss. They can be really commercial, or really about the art. We were lucky that this art fest was a pretty good one. We had a great time and the kids didn't break anything, yay!

Danielle is an art lover! She was lucky enough to inherit Dan's art abilities!

For some reason there are always a lot of dogs at art festivals, so Avie was a happy camper, she loves, loves, loves dogs!

I bought a print by an artist named Patricia Wyatt, very cool.

Rayce was just happy to have some pizza and be able to bring his gun!

We were also able to go hike the White Tank Mountains. It was more like a walk, the trail wasn't steep at all, but it turned out to be much more beautiful than I thought it would be. It has been raining so much that everything was so green (well, green by Arizona standard) and there was water flowing in the canyon!

My crappy camera just doesn't do it justice. The saguaro were so dense in some places and it was incredibly green. What a fun day!

Darn camera!

That's a little better.
Rayce didn't care to have his picture taken, not when there was plenty of water to get soaking wet in! Danielle is still mad at us for going without her, too bad her and Dan can't be on spring break at the same time.

So Fun! We love to do that "hike" with our kids, but we have never been lucky enough to have water flowing while we are there! Looks like fun :)

What fun ideas for fun things to do w/out a road trip (which I could do without). Enjoy the rest of your break!
