July 4th Weekend in Payson/Pine AZ

My husband and I spent the holiday weekend Up North in the mountains of Payson area. We just looked at all the little shops and enjoyed the scenery and the cooler weather. We actually had rain!! Here are a few shots of a bit of what we did and saw!
This is an old gas station made into an antique store.
My hubby really enjoyed this store!

I thought this was so funny....better get those ladies in to spend money!

Now, I would have bought this, but I would have had to take out a small loan...believe it or not, it was almost $400.00! Nope, not kidding!

Cool stuff....
This little store was so sweet, but it is closing.

If only I had room.

This was the darling dressing room.

Yep...I had to take a picture especially for Shelia!

This was Bentley favorite place...the balcony of our hotel room. My hubby says that he liked to smak talk to the birds and squirrels.
Speaking of which....

This squirrel was the evening entertainment!

We enjoyed some lovely scenery.

Hope you enjoyed a taste of our wonderful weekend. I did buy some little goodies...but that is for another day!

Good Morning!! Your getaway looked like so much fun---even the antique shop for men looked fun!! The scenery was just awesome--you live in such a beautiful part of the US!! I loved your squirrel entertainment--we have lots of 'squirrel photos' from trips, too--they're EVERYWHERE!

OMG----your new little Bentley is just adorable!! What a precious little guy---how sad someone would toss him out, but how wonderful that he 'found' you guys!! I do know what you mean about a pet 'changing' your life and how you want to get home to them!! I'm so glad you have him!

What a score on the clock at Big Lots!!! They just closed our Big Lots that was fairly near by--I do miss it, but I NEVER found such a bargain as you did!!! Way to go.

Hope you're having a great week!!

L, Dana

I was camping up near Payson this past weekend too. :)

And the tan suit case and train case.... my mom had that set in college. We still have the train case. I loved to play with it when I was little.
