For months I have been looking forward to introducing my boys to one of my Arizona favorites--hiking Camelback Mountain!
As a child growing up we would hike this on Thanksgiving and in High School I would hike it on Saturdays with my dog Molly as exercise, and when Brad and I were engaged I talked him into hiking it with me one night. I will have to look for some of the old pictures I have up here to show the boys. I LOVE this place.
It was SO FUN to hike this special mountain with my boys!
We called it Forced Family Fun:)
The boys had a blast taking crazy shots with their new Go Pro camera Santa brought!
Cannon and Bridger were like the energizer bunny all the way up--leading the way!
But on the way down they were exhausted and HUNGRY!
It was hilarious the change --what was fun was fun no longer!
OOPs I should have packed food.
It really was a lot harder than I remember. These boys were scaling rocks and working hard!
We finally made it to the TOP--woo hoo!!
We were delighted to find a cute little Christmas tree up there!
The view of the valley from up there is AWESOME!
It was day I will never forget!
On the way home I introduced them to another Arizona favorite--cookies from Paradise Bakery and everyone was happy again!
