What a fun weekend we had!!! We decided to go up north to Lakeside for a few days this past weekend for the 4th. We went up Thursday and stayed till Sunday. The car ride there was ok. It started raining on us when we went through the canyon and that was really scary. Then a rock came and hit our windshield and put a crack in it. The weekend went pretty good. We just hung around the house and relaxed. For the 4th we had a BBQ at my aunt and uncles house with their 2 daughters and their family. So that was a lot of fun to get to talk to them and have our kids play. Fireworks were pretty late so we just stayed in and watched them on TV. Jacob was so excited to watch fireworks and he loved them on TV just as much as he would of liked them live. Maybe next year. Then it started raining on Saturday and pretty much rained the whole day, and even hailed on us. It got down into the 60's and it was so nice!!! Then we went to church on sunday and headed out.
Now here is where the "fun" came in...haha. Those of you who are familiar with Arizona and up north will know what im talking about. If you dont, im sorry...haha. So we started off at about 12:10. We decided to go through Payson instead of going through the canyon just because its fun to go that way sometimes. Right as we started out, it started to rain again. Before we got to Heber, we saw one accident and it was backed up a little bit. By the time we got past that it was raining pretty hard. So between Show Low and Payson, it took us 3 hours. It was raining so hard that we could not see the car in front of us. By the time we got to Payson, the rain storm was just about to hit so it was fine. We decided to stop and have a bathroom break since we were all dying and needed to get out and stretch. But there was a HUGE line for the bathroom and the mens restroom was flooded and there was nastyness all over the floor. Tyler wouldnt walk and Jacob of course was making all kinds of noises because it stunk so bad. There was only one stall in each bathroom and so it took forever to get to the bathroom. Finally we were on our way home and we didnt get home until 530!!! It was one of the longest trips...but the weekend we had it was well worth it.
