AZ Adventure… we’re stuck!

   IMG_3193

On Monday, we decided to get out of the house for a couple hours. A couple turned into a few, resulting in a way too long car drive for the babies. We did however see a few things we’ve never seen before, so that was cool. Take a look:

We ended up getting stuck out in the desert, because we could not find a route to get home. We ended up meeting up with a couple of guys on motorcycles, who were in the same predicament. We had to drive down a river bed, then cross the river. Luckily we didn’t run out of gas… and we got home just fine. Here are some more pictures of the day.

Check out this HUGE Cactus… Justin is standing at the base of it, to give you an idea of how big it is!

We used to go there a lot! Love Sheep's Bridge. We had one of the kid's b-days there, too, with a caravan of celebrators. Did you see the "hot tub"? Nice pictures, too! Love that first shot. Looks like you had a blast. Did you know Joel's granddad was in the Guiness Book of World Records for a while for discovering the tallest cactus? It fell about 20 years ago, so he is not a record holder anymore. :)
