4th of JULY Weekend

Our first 4th in Arizona wasn't all that exciting! We have heard that there isn't much to do here because it is so dang hot but we had no other choice but to see for ourselves this year!! So my parents and the 3 of us decided to get in the car and go for a day drive. We all wanted to get away from the insane heat as much as possible so we drove up to the mountains in Payson. It was still hot but much nicer than Phoenix is this time of year!! We ate at a fun Buffalo Burger joint in Payson, drove around and saw all the fun greenery you don't get to enjoy in Phoenix and drove home through the Tortilla Flats. That was a blast. It was a really crazy, curvy, bumpy road that landed us in this small town with a population of like 16. (Note to self: Next time bring the truck!) We got yummy fudge and were on our way back home.

my dad somehow dodged all the pictures!
Our future 4th of July plans:
Attending a Diamond Backs game in an air conditioned stadium with a fireworks show
Heading to Salt Lake to enjoy boating and cooler weather!!!
One of these will be our yearly tradition for the 4th!

fun trip. I agree with your future plans. It is just so much better to get OUT of Phoenix. A d-backs game would be fun thought.

Sounds like it was still a good 4th holiday! :) And I would definitely say coming to SLC in the future would be the best of those two options....but that's just me ;)

This looks like so much fun! You have such a darling family.

I vote go to Salt Lake and Boating!!! of course you can come on the 24th too, we won't even have to go anywhere but the front yard for the fireworks! (plus we won't be in Cancun)
