my birthday wish

i've always loved being an august baby.
i enjoy the summers.
i love the anticipation of fall
that late august brings
and i love having a birthday.
this year my one wish was to go
camping in the red rocks of sedona.
we had never been and i was eager beat the
heat and expand my love of arizona.
we found a pretty camp site among the trees and mountains.
it even had a pretty little river running through it.
(this a big deal for me coming from the dry,
drought-cursed valley-of-the-sun)
the girls had a great time
(save jill and her non-fear of bugs that
landed her with the first bee sting of her life)
 jeff cooked us some yummy tin-foil dinners.
it was so yummy that we had about twenty or so
unexpected visitors.
(note the visitor under the table)
the next morning we went to slide-rock canyon.
birthday wish fulfilled.

Very cool! If Nate were a little more outdoorsy, we might actually do something as fun as this!

(Kristen's sister in law here....)Wow..soo beautiful! Flying over it in a plane doesn't do me any justice. I want to go to Sedona too!

That looks like fun! Except I think the nerves of the anticipation of having a skunk potentially spray me would've put a damper on things. Did you have any animal complications?
