arizona...

we spent last monday thru saturday in arizona..we had so much fun. the weather was perfect too...80's all week! ben needed to go to phoenix for business so we flew down with him to take a little vacation :). i hung out and played, swam, etc. with the kids during the day & then we all had lots of fun with daddy at night :). it was hard to come back to the cold in utah :)!



my friend deedee lives just out of phoenix so she came and hung out with us one day...we had a lot of fun! :) i love this girl!!


happy gavin chillin' in the hotel room...
petting zoo....
rawhide's (the western town we went to one night) had a petting zoo..kaden was in absolute heaven, he LOVES animals and wouldn't stop saying, "horsee, bye bye...moo, bye bye" after we left :)
he gave the goat kisses!! we were laughing so hard!...
rawhide's....
we went to a fake small western town called rawhide's one night, it had gunshows, train rides, animals, shops, camel rides, and more...it was a lot of fun :)

how cute is this picture!!...

fun in the pool....
kaden & gavin loved the pool. kaden started jumping in and blowing bubbles with no fear :). i don't think he remembers swimming in our pool last summer, so it was like his first time in a pool all over again :). it was gavin's first time swimming and he just floated most of the time in his float toy content as could be. i think my boys are going to be water lovers like their mom!
zoo time!!......
how funny is this pic!...lol..he's making the same expression as the gorilla :). i love it.

whenever kaden put's on one of our sunglasses (which he always wants to do) he says, 'cool dude'. its so stinkin' cute..
gavin @ nap time..






kaden was so sick of taking pic's by the time we were done @ the zoo...here i'm trying to convince him to come take 'just one more' :). poor kid, his mama' is way too camera happy! :)






rainforest cafe......
we love going to the rainforest cafe every time we're in vegas, the kids have never been though so we were excited to find one in phoenix. kaden LOVED all the talking/moving animals and the fish and water etc...gavin had a good time too :)



Time to go home............
we had so much fun this week..it was so hard to leave the nice summer weather in arizona! always good to be back in the groove at home though i guess :). the whole week we were gone it was really nice back in utah we were told...but of coarse the day we get home it starts snowing again! go figure :).
gavin fell asleep on the plane..he must have been so worn out because he never does that!
kaden was tired too! :)...

Looks like you guys had a great time in AZ!
Don't you love to get away and enjoy your kids in a different element? But it is always nice to come home!

Also - love your new design!
