Another Arizona adventure- a walk to the High Trail.

  On December 1st, my family and I decided it would be a ton of fun to go exploring. During the Winter months in certain areas of our state we all go hiking to make up for not having a white Christmas. If we want snow we just head up to the high country here…

Hiking an Arizona desert after a rainstorm…part two.

Once we headed back from walking Waterfall Trail at the White Tank Mountains, we decided to drive around the park, which is huge. The rain clouds were all around the mountains. It reminded my husband of Ansel Adams photos from the 80’s. There were a couple photographers out that morning taking photos. Every now and…

Throwback Thursday-The rock house

Every time we take our trip up north to Our Little Red House we always pass a stone house on the side of the road. And every time we drive pass it, it takes me back to a time when my Swedish Uncle lived in a house very similar to this one. My uncle’s rock…

Arizona is closed-

Well not really but parts of it is. A couple of weeks ago when we drove up to check on Our Little Red House we were surprised to see closure signs everywhere where happy families used to be camping and out enjoying our woods. It was really sad seeing this on our drive up. It…

Repost-On a country road again

Finally made it up north. The only free day we had was Easter, so our Easter morning this year was a beautiful country road trip through Arizona and the wildflowers were out in full force. The snow storms and rain everyone had over the Winter months ended up making our little part of the world…

Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

A baby pony at our little red house.

Early one morning while we were all sleeping in from a hard day of working like crazy remolding our little red house up north there was a knock on our back door. I am sure there were several knocks before I woke up to check and see who was there. I remember stumbling out of…

A day in Prescott Arizona…part two.

  Our road trip was coming to an end so before it got too late and that warm sun left (remember we are from Phoenix) we headed to our favorite place for a take out lunch…to Lynx Lake. When my husband and I first started dating, he was 19 and I had just turned 18,…

Snowstorm at the little red house.

You know that saying, “ Be careful what you wish for?” well, years ago, one winter season I wished for snow and all that goes with it. Now, I know there was no way snow was coming into the city of Phoenix, with it’s palm trees, cacti and pools everywhere. We don’t have normal Winter…

  Arizona Winter adventures…when the desert meets the sea.

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe one of my Christmas wishes came true. Finally after years of long drives across a huge desert to get to that beautiful ocean in California I can now get a little mini fix here in our state by visiting Odysea aquarium. Okay, first I have to say that I…
