Our Vacation to Colorado

We just got home from Colorado where we got to attend my dad's wedding in Estes Park in Rocky Mountain National Park. I lived in Colorado for a few years as a child, so it was a fun trip down memory lane for me. Eric enjoyed seeing my hometown, my schools, and where I lived, and we both agreed that Ft. Collins is definitely someplace where we could live if they ever get a Phoenix Fire Dept there :) We spent time with friends and explored new places and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful weather and surrounding. We also fueled our desire to start camping again, so if anyone wants to join us in the mountains definitely give us a call! The wedding was beautiful and Congratulations to my dad & Brenda, best wishes to you!

A Bike for my Birthday

If you sign up your child for the Toys R Us birthday program, they send your child a small gift certificate in the mail every year for their birthdays. We didn't have a chance to go before her birthday, so we went last week and found a really cute girls bike on clearance that Kylie instantly loved. It's hard to believe that she really knows how to ride a bike, but when we tell her to pedal, she moves her feet on the pedals! Daddy helped make a few tune-ups to the horn and seat, but it's perfect size for her. She always notices people bike-riding when we're driving and now she gets to be one of those people.

Playgroup Birthday Party

For the past year or so, a group of us have been gathering every other week to celebrate being moms and having adult conversations! This month, 3 of the girls all turned 2 years old: Kylie, Shay, & Ava. We decided to have a small party with our playgroup friends and we had so much fun. I decided to be adventurous and suggest finger painting with pudding - outside of course! Erin graciously volunteered her home and patio for this mess and it could not have been a more wonderful day. Again, I can't remember a June morning in Arizona that it's only been in the 80's! Thank you Lord for such a seasonably cool summer! Thank you dearly to everyone who came to celebrate with our girls and we cherish each of your friendships!
