In October I braved the pre-dawn flight and all three kids by myself for an Arizona trip- totally worth it! I saw Sisters, my Grandma, and dear Friends, wouldn't you?
It wasn't even 8am when we landed and tired already, err.. still tired!
My sister picked us up and we drove straight to the Zoo. Cute little creatures at that Phoenix Zoo!
It felt good to be hot again!
I can remember being Rocky's age at Willyerd Family Reunions and my Grand Grandma Joyce throwing pennies to all the grandkids sardined into her pool. The FUNNEST memories! It was great to watch them do it too. It technically wasn't warm enough to be swimming in her pool though, but the kids didn't seem to mind for the first 15 minutes.
After we spent a few days in the valley Kaylee dear picked us up and we headed up to Prescott. Heaven on Earth. The kids were wonderful, the Nuckles were excellent hosts, and memories were made, as always. Look at those kids off to adventure.
Rosy found Cameron's stash of dress up clothes. (Which were later sent to miss rosy for her birthday!) She practiced her balancing in high heels, on a 3.5ft retaining wall! All or nothing, I suppose.
This evening was Joe's famous slideshow he prepared on a Barbados dream vacation hopefully taking place towards the end of 2014. (By the way, Joe and Kade joined us in Prescott that weekend). Kaylee has to have her baby boy, and the boys have to ask the time off from work...but that's really all that's standing in our way at this point! Have I mentioned that I love these girls?!
We had a lovely adventure with the Nuckle's canoe- they took us to a Prescott Lake that reminded me of a land of Giants. The bulging boulders unlocked my imagination out there, I can't wait to go back some day.
