we found p a r a d i s e

Normally I would share our weekend review, especially since it was a good one! We pretended Thursday was the start of our weekend (even though Eric had to work Friday) and Eric planned a double date! We met up with another couple who have a little girl just a few months older than Mia and ate dinner, ice cream and stayed up late talking while the girls played! Friday night we finally watched Divergent, loved it! Then Saturday we spent our day up the mountain with our friends and we had the best time! BUT! I really didn't take any pictures.... so I guess I'll share a different adventure Mia and I enjoyed together :)
I have been seeing pictures all summer long of people swimming at "Little Jamaica" and I had to explore this place for myself! It is seriously in the crappiest, ugliest spot.... it's in Arizona, right between the Utah and Nevada borders, directly underneath the freeway! My friend, Kortney, made the trek with us and we were in awe of this gorgeous, tiny paradise in the middle of crappiness (ha ha)! Someone dammed a section of the waterfall to create a pool and it's the perfect spot to spend a summer day! The waterfall is surrounded by grapevines and it makes the prettiest backdrop! I pretty much wish this was in my backyard, ha ha! Mia is quite the little fishy, which I love, and we had so much fun swimming and hiking the waterfall! I kind of don't want summer to end!

Don't you just love the paradise you can find in your own backyard? :)

What a perfect and gorgeous little spot - even amid the not so pretty surrounding it. Looks like you ladies had a pretty awesome aqua adventure!

Divergent was so good! Can't wait for the next movie :) And I wish I could go to that place and swim so bad!

How could such a beautiful place be underneath a freeway? That is so random and so cool! I love waterfalls. I saw Divergent over the weekend. I liked it but didn't love it the way everyone seemed to love the book. I've heard the book is better but I probably won't watch since I've seen the movie.

I saw Divergent too, in the middle of reading the last book, loving it so far. I actually watched the movie twice this weekend. And that place looks amazing!
