Shopping trip to a real Arizona trading post.

Oh boy, do I have a fun one to share with you all this time. Out here in the old west we used to have trading posts in the middle of nowhere Arizona where natives, cowboys and pioneers would get most of their supplies. There was a lot of bartering that went on too. Sometimes…

  Arizona adventures-festival of lights

“ Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show.” For the past couple of years, my family and I take a road trip to the Besh ba Gowah archaeological site, about a mile away from Globe Arizona. This is an event I recommend to anyone visiting our state…

When it rains it snows…at Our Little Red House that is.

It’s that time of year again. That time of year that makes it impossible to drive up to check on our place because the days we have free are also days when big storms roll into our state. Every time it rains here, it snows up north. We are desert creatures, having been raised in…

  A road trip to the country.

  “A little bit of country is good for the soul.”   We are so happy to finally have a truck. Remember the accident my husband was in a couple months ago? Everyone was okay and that is the most important part and now we have a vehicle to drive up north with. The day…

Checking in at Our Little Red House.

“Don’t wait until you have reached your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of every step you take toward reaching that goal.” Drove up to check on Our Little Red House. We had to check on the solar that was installed up there. The electric company is renting Our Little red house for…

 A quick trip to the woods.

Thought it would be nice to share another mini walk in the woods with you all. If you liked my older post on walking in the worlds largest Ponderosa pine forest then you will also like this post. They are both from the same area. Sometimes when we are up north we will eat outside…

Shopping trip to an old Arizona cowboy town (city).

Thought this would be a fun one to share with you all. Spent the day up in Prescott Arizona a couple weeks ago shopping. So much fun checking out their shops. If you are a follower of mine you will recognize some of the photos. This is such a beautiful place to visit for the…

A visit to a city library

Oh summer time in good old Phoenix Arizona, it sure does drag when you are stuck inside because it is just too hot to do much. Then the kids get bored and stir crazy. When my kids got bored when they were little we would head to the library down town. They loved being downtown…

 Family fun day paper crafts-milk carton barn.

“Every time you sit down to eat…thank a farmer.” Hey everyone. Only two more paper crafts for the summer are left. I can’t believe how fast the summer is going. This craft is a little more complicated but you can simplify it by not adding little barn doors or a hay loft window. Supplies needed-…
