Fossil Springs Fail

love these boys with all my heart

The Saturday after we finally got our swagger wagon we decided to take it on a little day road trip up to Fossil Springs in Strawberry, AZ.  I never realized how pretty of a drive it is up through Payson. So green with millions of pine trees. When we got to the location we thought the hike to fossil springs started at we were turned away and re-routed to a different entrance. It took us another hour at least to get to the other entrance only to get turned away again! The ranger said that the spring was already at full capacity and that we would have to wait 2 hours for them to let more cars in. At this point the kids were so done being in the car so we decided to just start heading back home. We were so bummed! Wyatt has been wanting to take us here forever! We stopped at Crystal Creek on the way back home and literally as we were parking it starting storming with crazy thunder and lightening. So we let the kids swim in the water for about 20 minutes before it got really bad. They loved it even though it wasn't Fossil Springs. On the way home we stopped at the Outlets in Anthem to make the drive worth it even more. I love Saturdays with my favorite people!!
