Trip to Phoenix - Box Canyon
Saturday Nov. 8th. It's Aaron's Birthday! He wanted to take the family riding. We went just out of Phoenix to the west I think to Box Canyon. It was beautiful. It was warm and sunny. Grandpa and Grandma Sherwood came and drove the Ranger. Brock road with them. Ron and his family also came, Ron drove his 4x4, I can't remember what he calls it? His daughter, Gena drove her green Tahoe. Mary and the kids rode with Gena, BRAVE. She is 16 and this was her first time out. She did great. Aaron, Cyle and I rode bikes and Trent kept right up on the Raptor. We had lunch up in the canyon. Climbed some rocks. Went threw some old abandoned homes. I didn't even wreck! Actually, nobody got hurt. A few scrapes was about all. We made it back to the trucks just before the sun went down. It was a long day, but it was a fun day with everyone. I think Aaron had a happy birthday. We stayed the rest of the weekend at mom and dad's in Maricopa. We went out with Brock and Maryanna, and Ron and Mary that night while Cyle was nice enough to watch the kids for us. Sunday we visited friends some more and mom bought stake for dinner and brought home cake and ice cream. What more could a guy want?
