4th of July Fun!

So for the 4th of July I was able to go to my cabin in Show Low, Az. I love the White Mountains and have been going up there ever since I could remember. My Grandparents use to live up there but sold their amazing house a couple years ago. Im glad that we kept the cabin though and can still go from time to time. I left Thursday afternoon and came back early Sunday evening. It was an amazing weekend!
For the actual 4th I was able to talk my Mom into going to Greer. It's a little town just past Sunrise about 15 min. It's so beautiful there and has a creek that I grew up playing and hiking in. Every time I go back now I decide I want to take my Honeymoon there. It's a cute simple little place to go and you don't have to spend too much money. While I was at the creek I was able to hike and have fun with my dog, Huey.

(Isn't it pretty!?!)
(Huey and Me- I love his expression!) (I love it!)
(Hiking down the creek!)

Later that night we went to the local Show Low High School for fireworks. It was so much fun. They had a really good country band playing before hand and the fireworks were wonderful. Funny story was, that right before the fireworks started we had the sprinklers turned on us. Haha. I didn't mind, but my Mom was a little cold afterwards.

The next morning I was extremely excited because that meant it was Saturday July 5th. Which meant that evening was the Taylor 4th of July Rodeo!!! Heck yes!! Anyone that knows me, this is huge. Im a country girl that was raised in the city and can't help but love my cowboys and rodeos! Though earlier that morning I went with my Mom to an art festival at a place called Charlie Clarks. My Mom wanted to show me around and thought it would be a cute place for a wedding reception for me- and no Im not getting married anytime soon. She was right though, it's very cute and I'll keep it in mind. But I thought you guys might like to see for yourselves...

When we got home I was able to rest and then get ready for the evening!! Bring on the Taylor Rodeo. But...because Im cruel, actually no Im really tired, Im going to stop there. Besides the Taylor Rodeo deserves it's own post.

Im off to bed, keep hanging on!!
