A Delightful Escape!

I have been going a little buggy here these past few weeks.Tired of summer and feeling a little blue that we won't get a fabulous fall like we did in Utah and Colorado. It hasn't helped me with the fact that our upstairs AC went out again! Well, Tony (and mom!) talked me into going up to the mountains this weekend! We are staying at the Majestic Inn in Payson. Our bishop had recommended it as a quick escape to the mountains that is not a long way to travel!
When we got here I was so disappointed because when we left Gilbert the temp was 112 and I was expecting it to be a lot cooler here. The temp here was 102. What?? Well fortunately after about an hour the winds picked up and the skies turned grey and a nice rainstorm hit! It was fantastic and a added bonus? It lowered the temps to a bearable 85! Excellent!
We swam and then we went outside to the picnic tables. I loved the smell of the pines and the sound of the wind in the trees! Grace went a little wild picking up every pine cone she could find.
It was heavenly and I feel a little better already!
Tomorrow we are going to head up to Woods Canyon Lake for a little fishing and then we are going to do a little exploring. Should be a fun day all around.
I am glad we decided to escape!

I hope you have a great time!!
If The Oak resturant is still open we had some very yummy food there.

Oh, I am glad you got to escape. Escaping the daily routine seems to clear my head. It lets me focus and I don't have the distractions of what should, could, or aught to be done. Enjoy!!
