Entering Phoenix Children’s Hospital:
After hearing that surgery would be scheduled for later date:
In celebration, we decided to go hiking in the San Tan Mountains. Might as well do it now, before the foot surgery… We might not be hiking for a while afterward, afterall.
Trying to beat sunset.
We made it to the preserve at 6:00, and figured we had about 40 minutes of light left. Unfortunately, upon arriving I was reminded that there is an entrance fee of $6. I had completely forgotten to bring my purse (packing light for hiking), and so we decided to put our little dusk hike off a day or two and come back. We opted to stop at a park in Queen Creek instead.
While the kids played with the playground equipment, I played with the camera.
The sunset was too beautiful not to photograph!
With the flash:
Without the flash:
The kids rocked the night away…
And then took turns playing with the camera, as well.
Time to go home.
But not without one more roll down the hill…
When we arrived back at the car at 7:15pm, the outside temperature was 99 degrees. Anybody else ready for some cool temperatures?!
