Outdoors Fun (lots of pics)

On Friday it was little cloudy and cool here in AZ so I decided Sofia and I would take advantage of the opportunity and do something outdoors. We packed a picnic lunch, our cameras and umbrella (just in case) and headed out to Saguaro Lake and the Salt River. We hiked, played in the very cold water and enjoyed a picnic outside. It was a great day. The rain held off and it started to warm up a bit. The Salt River is famous for everyone rafting down in in tubes and drinking lots of beer while doing so! It was a bit cool for most people, but as the day warmed up, the tubers started showing up. Sofia said he looked like a lot of fun and she would like to do it as well. I'm not sure she would make it in a tube for 2.5 hours!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. I have all of next week off, so I am very happy about that!
I love to watch Food Network and have been trying to cook more. I have decided I really like Sandra Lee's new show about cooking for less $. This morning she made yummy sweet potatoe fries that I think I will make with our lunch today. I feel inspired while watching these shows, of course, I can't get too fancy with my cooking or Sofia will surely starve!
