Arizona From 7000 ft

We are alive! The move was successful and our drive from Arizona to Ohio went just fine... Minus the snow we woke up to in Amarillo, TX!

The weekend before we moved, the kids and I went hiking. I chose a place we've never hiked at because with us moving, we won't get the chance again. After the absolutely gorgeous views we saw, I regret not having done it sooner and with Gabe there. I chose to hike at the Coronado National Memorial which is just south of us and sits on the border of Mexico. Yes, we lived that close to the border.

I selected a hike that was short and had an incline of about 400 ft. No problem I thought. HAH! I didn't take into account that with a short hiking distance, the incline meant it would be steeper. And steep it was! Just about the whole thing was steps and I almost turned us around a few times but we persevered and it was worth it! It was breathtakingly beautiful, amazing, serene, so many words could describe it.

We had to drive up a steep, winding, one lane, dirt road which you'll see in the photos. Speaking of photos... Let's get to em.

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Welcome to Refrigerator Memories! That's a funny name (I know you're thinking it). Here's why I chose it.

This is my second year participating and I'm excited to see what this blog party brings. Last year's post came at an exciting time in our lives. I was due with baby #3 and went two weeks late!

Well this year is just as crazy. My husband left for Afghanistan a little over a week ago after a very short notice. We weren't planning on spending another year apart but sometimes God and life just have other ideas. We're OK with it and the kids and I are going to be moving back to my hometown in NE Ohio where we can be with family. We are preparing to make the move from our home here in Southern Arizona next week so again with the insane timing of the Ultimate Blog Party!

I'm sorry for a lack of photos. I blame it on the lack of computer that is currently packed away and the fact that my iPad is not letting me add any. You can find me blogging about our daily life, my favorite recipes, some crafts, and any other topic that happens to strike my fancy.

Thanks for stopping by and stick around to follow our ever changing fast paced life!
