On the morn of February 13th we both woke up fairly early, and finally rested, to Starbuck's that my father had picked up for us on his morning drive through Scottsdale.
Flavor my senses, sweetens my disposition, stirs my imagination, and nourishes my dreams... is that coffee they speak of?
I had an egg, cheese, and spinach sandwich on a ww english muffin alongside green tea.
And then we began our day on the Lost Dog Wash trail, this time with the entire family.
My dad and brother actually began to jog up the ridge... while the girls and I walked behind them :). There's so much beauty to take in, why rush it?
There were spectacular views of the Valley of the Sun, also known as the greater Phoenix area, on our way up. But before we knew it, it was time to go back down for Deanna's birthday present. Don't ask what it was, rather what it was that we did :) and you shall find out soon enough!
