This year May 2020 I was turning the big 3-0. I wanted to fly and take a trip to Florida for my 30th birthday. With the covid-19 spread, it definitely changed my plans. As the month of May approached things were opening back up. I decided what I wanted to do for my birthday. I just wanted to be on a boat with my family and some close friends. We originally wanted to camp at Theodore Roosevelt Lake but all the campsites were closed due to the virus. So we had to choose between Globe or Payson at a hotel. We chose Payson because we were going to head up towards Needles, California to stay for 5 days. It was super busy because of Memorial weekend. We headed up towards Payson on Friday. Getting stuck in traffic for an hour was not planned, but there were a lot of travelers heading up North towards Payson.
Friday for dinner we ate at Macky’s Grill, the customer service was so amazing. They were super packed with customers yet they treated everyone with great customer service. The food was delicious. After dinner we went to the Casino in Payson. I definitely had some birthday luck there every machine I played I won at. Saturday we spent the day on Theodore Roosevelt Lake on a boat. Everyone had such a great time. It went exactly how I wanted. Definitely can scratch that off my bucket list. The weather was so perfect all day! The kids swam and got pulled by the boat on an inflatable tube.
Sunday we headed towards California stopped in Flagstaff to eat some Red Lobster. Then we came across Bearizona. We didn’t plan to stop there but we always wanted to go. Seeing all the animals was very neat. You drive in your cars and see all the animals. There are bears, wolves, and bison's. You could also get down and walk in a different area and see other animals. Our favorite was the Jaguars, they're such beautiful animals.
I really enjoyed my 30th birthday, it was spent with some amazing people. I love to going on adventures and see different places. So I may not have flown but I ended up traveling which is what I wanted to do in the first place. When we head back home we are stopping in Sedona. I can’t wait to see that beautiful place. Until the next adventure!
