The Peanut and her parents...we're a little nutty.

We live right on the edge of the Tonto National Forest. About 5 minutes from our house is a place called Sears Kay. Hundreds of years ago the Hohakam Indians lived on this land and we have quite a few intact Indian ruins around where we live. We hiked up today and checked out some really great ones that we had yet to discover. Alexa brings her walking stick on all hikes and was the self designated leader. Here she is entering some ruins of the structures that the Indians used as rooms.
There is Weaver's Needle in the background. The views are amazing up there. We've had a lot of rain, so the desert is very green..not the usual but very pretty.
That's Four Peaks with snow still on it in the background. It was a beautiful day and a great family hike!
I am a fortysomething mom of an amazing daughter that we adopted in 2006 from Hubei China. Alexa is 10 years old and lights up our lives everyday. I am married to my best friend, have 3 crazy dogs and love my life near the beach. We are soaking up life in CA in our new home and welcome you into our piece of paradise.
