Well we attempted to go camping over the Labor day weekend but the weather was not cooperating with us. Of course it was sunny here in Phoenix but as soon as we got up to our campsite close to Flagstaff it was looking really gloomy. We thought that it would subside but it continued to linger. My parents, Bryan and I and the kids, and my brother and his wife all went up together on Saturday morning. We camped at this beautiful site near Stoneman Lake which was really secluded. It was wonderful until it started to rain. We only ended up staying over night and then decided that it would be better to pack up and head home due to the rain. We did get to make smores while we were there so I guess that's always a plus. Here are a few pictures from our very, very, very short camping trip.

Well even though it was a very short trip it was still fun. At least we got to get out of the heat for a day. The trip from the camp site home was a whole different story. First off my parents car wouldn't start. What do you know none of us had jumper cables on us. Go figure. So my brother and my dad had to go searching around for other campers to see if we could borrow a pair. Luckily they found some campers not to far from us that let us use there's. Well after jumpstarting their vehicle we started our trip home down the dirt road that we cam in on. About a couple of miles down the road we notice that my dad pulls off to the side of the road. Well his tire blew out. What our the odds that your car battery is dead and your tire blows out all in same day less than a half hour of eachother. So after fixing his blown out tire we were finally able to start our journey home. Here is a picture of the boys on the way back. This should explain it all.
