SLIDE ROCK STATE PARK

On our last day in Arizona the kids and I drove out to Slide Rock State Park, I had heard it was amazing and we were only about 45 minutes away.

It was great motivation to get school done that morning, so after school, we packed a lunch and headed out there. The whole drive up was beautiful, we went from the arid dessert, to the colorful and piney Sedona.

I’m sure this place is super busy in the summer, as it is perfect for swimming and sliding through the rocks, but I very much enjoyed the quiet. There were a few people there, but it was quiet enough that we really got to enjoy the scenery without the crowds.

The kids loved exploring around the rocks and dipping their toes in the frigid waters. They hated leaving and I can't blame them. The weather was perfect, the scenery spectacular, I wanted to stay there myself!

The day we sold our house, as we were riding to my in-laws house, the kids were in the back seat having a conversation, it went something like this...
     Vaughn: “So we are like homeless now! You know? We don’t have an actual house!”
     Sydney: “Yes, but our camper is going to be our house!!”
     Vaughn: “Yeah, and the world will be like our backyard”

I love that they can see the world that way and I hope they always do!
