Can’t Resist That Glorious February Weather! Desert Dreamy

As much as I’ve wanted to get the heck out of the desert already, I can’t deny that the weather last month was amazing! It was just cool enough that the scorpions hadn’t come back and just warm enough to not need a jacket or sweater. The sun was always shining and all the desert foliage was starting to come to life. It is actually pretty green here in Arizona these days. As green as it gets here anyway! (And just this week I’ve seen flowers started to blossom, yay for Spring in the desert!)  photo 211eresized_zps8b515b7c.jpg photo 216eresized_zps62e108f9.jpg

We walked behind the pond we’d been playing in into some trees and cactus to find some new, cool little spots.  photo 067eresized_zpsa6e1b533.jpg

The kids each found a little area, usually near a tree, that they called their forts. This was Sierra’s.  photo 082eresized_zpsaae50c97.jpg

After watching the older girls climb the tress Ember wanted up as well.  photo 103eeresized_zps0e1c518f.jpg photo 106eresized_zpsdf1c2b46.jpg photo 114eresized_zpsd890087c.jpg

Payson is afraid of heights so at first he didn’t want to join in but seeing Ember up there he was tempted to try it.  photo 119eresized_zps6a577888.jpg photo 121eresized_zpseb4eb57d.jpg photo 134eeresized_zpsa1091ca3.jpg photo 138eresized_zps9d960ac3.jpg photo 141eresized_zpsfc31134e.jpg photo 149eresized_zpsb19db1fa.jpg photo 161e2resized_zps05b9bc5a.jpg photo 166eresized_zps31cd0019.jpg

Allan tried to stay just out of the way for those pictures but then I wanted some of him with the kids.

The girls during this were running around playing all sorts of other things. They’re best friends and don’t care to have the little kids joining their games.  photo 210eresized_zps58de22b8.jpg
