"Wallowing" In Show Low

My parents have started this family tradition of leaving for the summer...something about it being too hot here and since they are old (I mean retired), they can just up and leave. They must realize how boring life can be without kids, granddaughters, and grandpuppies because they invite us along!
Last year they wanted to start having everyone meet up in the white mountains. It was a lot of fun and we were so excited to go again this year.

We were planning to go to Hawley Lake, but for some reason they changed their mind and settled on Fools Hollow. Good thing they did, because the Wallow Fire was in that area and it was evacuated the same weekend we would've been there.

The temperature was nice and cool, and it was a lot of fun hanging out with everyone. It was way too windy to go boating or kayaking though, and way to dry to have a fire...luckily Kenny had his Droid with a fire App and we all sat around it one night pretending it was a nice cozy fire!

While Chloe and Braelynn liked playing in the dirt, all the little girls decided sleeping outside is NOT for them...the 2nd night, 10 of us + 2 pack & plays ended up in my parents 5th wheel...nice and cozy!
Can't wait to do it again next year! Hopefully we'll be able to have a campfire though :)
