Memorial Day Weekend Trip!

Over Memorial Day, May 26 – 29th, 2017, my fiance and I took a trip up to Pine, Arizona with his family. Ryan’s grandparents have a little cabin there and every year the rest of the family tries to go up and visit a couple times. It’s a great opportunity to get out of the valley heat!

Family who went included Ryan’s parents, both of his brothers, significant others, and four kids. A packed house nonetheless but it made for a fun, eventful weekend!

This year we did a lot of chilling and hanging out with the family. Movies and games are always apart of these trips! We also went on a couple hikes, during which we ran into some very large elk. Now that’s something you don’t see every day! Some other activities included coloring, pellet gun shooting, reading and “porch therapy” – i.e. swinging on the porch, enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery!

I’ve included a video collage of some of our pictures. While this was a minor weekend trip, travel is travel and all traveling is worthy of being captured by pictures! Enjoy!

The Huffington Post states that traveling can make you an overall happier… Continue reading Why Travel?
