Halloween 2011

We went to so many Halloween carnivals and parties that abby wanted to dress up as something different each time, originally she was going to be belle the whole time but when she wanted to switch and we had all the stuff i thought why not? so those are the three she chose and cute Cali was a Care Bear thanks to Holly. We had a great Halloween and love that its warm enough here that we can wear the costumes and not have to cover them up with a coat.

Hiking up South Mountain

So we live in Tempe Arizona and have lived her for 6 months and have just recently realized we live right next to some great hiking trails. So we have been taking advantage ever since.

trip to vegas

We went to Vegas a few weeks ago to buy a truck from Jeffs parents (we sold our Jeep) so we decided to take the girls to see Freemont Street to see the light show and all the fun dressed up people there and they loved it. The picture on the top of Abby is my absolute favorite, i love that little girl.

Mexico in a day (this is for you Sarah)

So Saturday night comes along and my cousin Sarah ( in all the pictures above ) says to me and Jeff that she has never been outside the U.S. and so Jeff tells her thats its like 3 hours away to Mexico and we should go, so we decide to pack up and make a day trip out of it on Sunday. So we woke up early got everything ready and drove to Mexico. We spent a lot of time on the beach and that was awesome, it was really warm and just fun. Then we did a little shopping where Sarah got some glasses she has been wanting and then headed back home. It was spontaneous and just really fun. Sarah is moving in a couple of weeks and we are really going to miss having her here and being our "nanny".

Celebrating 24th of July

24th of July in Snow Flake Arizona

This year we wanted to actually celebrate 24th of July because its not really celebrated in many places here in Arizona, but it is in Snow Flake We have some friends who have a house close to there so we all went up and celebrated there. We had a parade in the morning, then a fair and then a rodeo and fireworks. Abby told me during the fireworks that they are better there than on tv (we have to watch them on tv for the 4th of July cause its just to hot) It was so nice to go somewhere a little cooler and to spend time doing things that we used to always do in Utah. It was a great weekend.
