Hole in the Rock

Hole in the Rock

One of the reasons we moved to a smaller house was …. to get out and do more activities as a family. Instead of being stuck at home on a Saturday doing housework and yard work. Today we did just that!!

Hole in the Rock, Papago Park, Phoenix.

I slept in on this beautiful Saturday.

I woke up at 9am! Yes… it was great. Then my husband made his delicious French Toast. I swear he makes the best French Toast. After covering it with Nutella oh and a little syrup I completely enjoyed it!
I have been wanting to go to see this Hole in the Rock at Papago Park for sometime. I know we have lived in this valley for almost 15 years and we have never seen it. Yes… I know we need to get out more!  My husband also says we needed to go see so I can cross it off the list and stop bugging him to go and see it.

Crossed off the list!

As a mom… I love to see my kids explore by themselves. I try and not worry as much, but I have to admit I am a worry wort. I hear myself saying “be careful” like a thousand times. My husband is total opposite. He is an true adventure at heart. My girls are so lucky to have a dad like him.

You are not really that high up but it is a great view of the Valley. It is quite an easy hike… actually it is not really a hike at all. It is a walk around the Hole in the Rock.

Jane is the happiest little girl I know. She is always the one saying Mom… take a picture of me!

My little girl Jayd is never quite sure of herself. She always says… Mom carry me! This one she wanted to do it all by herself.
