4th of July Weekend

  Kev and I have been on quite a few roadtrips this summer...thus far, anyways; we still have a lot of summer days ahead.  For the 4th, we went up with some of my family to my grandpa's cabin in Prescott for a BBQ and to watch the fireworks, of course :)  I wish I had gotten some pictures of the actual cabin and of all of us playing badmitton/yahtzee.  It's so pretty up there, and it was especially green this year. 

The fireworks show was pretty amazing this year.  We always go to one of the church buildings in Prescott Valley and sit in the grass and pass the red vines around.  It reminds me so much of my grandma when we go up to the cabin, especially on the 4th.  It was always one of her most favorite places to go and she loved to go up there and watch the fireworks. 

Kev and I both had Monday off as well, and we hadn't taken a trip to go visit the Gila Valley Temple yet, so we decided to go check it out.  It was obviously closed, so we weren't able to go inside or do a session, but it was beautiful as ever from the outside.  It looks amazing with the mountains in the background. 

Aside from visiting the temple, we made a few short stops along the way...random as ever, but we couldn't pass them up!

So pretty!

Prom pose?

Firm, fair and effective huh?
We probably spent a full 10 minutes trying to get this shot. Kev was set on getting this picture. Even after dropping my camera off of the car into the dirt, we still managed to get this.

Here's an example of one of the 5 attempts:

When did the Indians put a wooden door on their teepees?

It's always an adventure roadtriping with Kev :)
