Antiquing in Cave Creek

Somehow this post got completely lost in all of our family fun time here in Phoenix.

I am actually here alone with Henry now. David and Sydney left on the drive home yesterday and are spending tonight in Casper, Wyoming. I will admit... it is not exactly fun being alone in a 3600 square foot house. I am a little bit lonely and anxious without anyone but big H. Luckily, it is still sunny and hot. We have been occupying our time in the pool. 

Before the other half of our family hit the road we managed to get a little road trip in to Cave Creek. Cave Creek is a small town outside of Phoenix. It is so close that it could be considered a suburb, but it has a completely different feel. The road into town is quiet and mountainous. It is popular with the massive road cycling community here and David has even ridden up there a few times. It has a very small town western vibe. The entire main street is lined with antique stores and art shops. We walked around for a couple of hours and found so many great things that we would have brought home with us if we had a way to get them home. Amazing old furniture finds and great metal art were mixed in with authentic southwest style blankets and cool jewelry. It was pretty incredible.
