Ramsey Canyon

The boys and I went up to Ramsey Canyon today. It was really pretty and a good day to go. {we had planned to go yesterday but James had to learn a lesson about why we don't lie}.

Going up to the canyon is really neat because you go from a total desert to a pretty wooded area with a lot of wildlife.
{betcha didn't know that we have to watch out for bears...}
Now the very first time I came up here I ended up lugging Tim up the trail. {thanks Amy for helping with that} We've been a couple more times but at one point or another I've had to carry Tim. This time he walked the whole way... which meant we went a little slower but I didn't have carry him at all. Although he did tell me he was tired the whole way up.

We didn't go as far as we usually do because we found a splash area... just what we wanted...Now I'm perfectly fine to let the boys get wet and play in the water... they dry. Mud, on the other hand, not so happy with. {hey, I just don't want to clean the car out}

{Some of these pictures I'm just trying to get different angles and playing with my camera}

Finally we were making our way back and James became blind. Oh, no worries, he goes blind at least 3 times a week. {"A bee stung me, in my eye... I'm blind!!!" "I got soap in my eye... I'm blind!!!" "I ate a {ittty bitty} piece of tomato.... I'm blind!!!} He was fine once we spotted some wild turkeys his eyesight returned without any debilitating side effects and he was able to see them scratching around.

While we were watching the deer and turkeys Tommy found a blue beetle that Tommy decided wanted to be his friend. I have nothing against bug in nature... how ever bugs in my car is another story. So I had him set his new friend free.

You found it! There is water somewhere in Arizona! (I was beginning to doubt it). Looks like a great hike, thanks for the amazing pictures.

What a great day. His blindness was cracking me up. If Tim gets any better looking he's going to be pretty!
