What I've Been Doing

Hey everyone, I'm back!
We can all breathe a sigh of relief now.  Just gonna post a few pictures of a place we stayed at near Show Low, AZ.  We mostly sat around and enjoyed not being roasted, and also enjoyed all the rain.  It was lovely.  And ate a lot of meat.  I feel the need for a salad!

This is the cabin we stayed in. 



 Many moons ago it was a one room schoolhouse.  The doggie's name was Sarah, and she visited us daily to see if we had any scraps that needed taken care of.

Molly also helped with that.


Mara strikes a pose, and Simon sits on dangerous farm equipment.

Lovely scenery.
Paddle boatin'.

Fun in a creek.


Friendly horses who love Honey Nut Cheerios.  (oddly enough the horses across the lane hated them and went to great lengths to spit them out)  Btw...if cheerios are poisonous to horses please don't tell me, I don't think my psyche can take it.


We annoyed the crap out of this snake every day while he was trying to catch some rays.  Didn't mean to, just wanted to look at him.

My boy being a boy.

Blue bug!

So what's cookin' with all of you?

Looks like a great time! I always love staying in a cabin. Love Mara's pose:)

P.S. I don't know what I'd do if I saw a snake that close. I'd probably run and hide.

Where is Show Low? Is that up in the vicinity of Flagstaff? It looks absolutely lovely and not too hot.

Glad to have you back!

Julie said...

I think Show Low is a little more South east-ish than Flagstaff. It is pretty nice up there.

I love your family photos. I love the cabin. It looks well kept which is always my first priority.

We have not got away and we are hoping for the end of August. We will see.

Looks like a good trip.

Don't know about the honey nut cheerios. But, I have seen horses that luv bread! Probably didn't hurt them in small doses.

Snake - yuck - he would have been more than annoyed with me.....he would have to leave the vicinity.
