I just happened to look out the window and there were two sweet mule deer munching away.
We got lemons from a neighbor and decided to make lemon bars out of them. Placed cookie cutters upside down on the bars before sprinkling powdered sugar.
We had the opportunity to go to Camp Verde to go camping (a little too chilly in Sedona) and found an awesome spot with a nice open view of the Mingus Mountains, a fire ring with some extra wood left, and a great flat spot for the tent. Camping with a hybrid vehicle...
We were going to leave one day and saw that there were two javelina in the yard eating the weeds. After a minute, one started walking up our steep hill using the path that I had dug out a couple of years ago, which we’ll pave eventually. It’s always fun to...
We went camping and brought along the kite. The wind made it much more challenging to set up and take down the tents, but it was super for flying the kite!
We went camping and brought along the bow & arrows. The kids wanted to practice, so I let them shoot at a cactus that already had a bunch of holes in it (probably from gun shots).
Josh has been earning money from selling his alcohol ink jewelry and he was super excited to buy this Titanic model built out of very tiny Lego-looking bricks.
I had the opportunity to take a First Class Charter tour of Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona. It’s about 3.5 hrs from Sedona. Such a beautiful slot Canyon cut into curvy walls
When you have a snow day, it’s a good time to get caught up on chores, work on your business or personal hobbies, or catch up with friends & family.
It was fun (for me and the kids) to watch these things bake, with big funky bubbles.
Josh enjoys making his alcohol ink art into jewelry.
I saw movement out of the corner of my eye as a pack of javelinas decided to roam through our yard. It was fun to watch them eating weeds and interacting with each other. Just stay away from them – they don’t have very good vision and are pretty...
The Sedona Airport put on a Wings & Wheels event showing off cool planes, cars, a glider, ATV, etc.
We had a fun time putting together a 7 layer bean dip, with beans only on half of it, lol.
I had the opportunity to go to Antelope Canyon with some friends. It was so gorgeous – everywhere you went, every angle you looked at was so beautiful. There was a big walk to get down to it (and back up on the way out)
I got a chance to go see Horseshoe Bend and it was much larger than it looks in pictures, with little bitty boats at the bottom, hehe. Easy pay, park & walk a bit to a lookout point.
My son and I made these spinning moon pendants a couple of weeks ago. He has already sold 5, and we are making some new styles tomorrow 🙂
We went for an awesome weekend with Kevin’s friends to go surfing on the lake. It was a good challenge to figure out how to position yourself, to balance, etc. It took me quite a few times to figure it out and I still only stayed up for maybe 15 seconds, lol....
We decided to go help out at an adoption event for a local dog shelter. It was kind of chaotic but we had fun and I think the kids felt good for helping out.
My 12 year old loves treadmills. He sets the speed to 10 and runs as fast as he can. We also go to the gym to do rock climbing, swimming, ping pong, and Foosball.
We took a long, rocky dirt road to Parson’s Trailhead and hiked down to Sycamore Creek. We found an awesome swimming hole with a sandy beach.
I had to replace my brakes, so I took the opportunity to teach the kids, especially the almost 17 year old, how to change a tire using the car’s jack as well as a hydraulic one. They had fun taking turns removing the bolts and lifting the jacks. All along the...
Our kids had been playing with Orbeez (knockoffs) the whole week and our oldest had mentioned that she wanted to try paintball so when I found out they had Gelly ball wars at Be Wild in Cottonwood, we had to try it out. They had a great time. The 8 year old got hit...
At Be Wild in Cottonwood, AZ they have a rock climbing wall (and all sorts of other fun stuff). So Josh (left) got to feed his rock climbing bug again for a minute. It’s so fun to watch him because he almost looks like he’s made for it.
