95 to 45

Just got back from a little trip


The weather was 95 and now here I am back in Colorado with temperatures around 45!!!  Why is it I live in Colorado again?

Nathan was asked to guest play on a team above his in a tournament down in Phoenix.  We were excited since we have a lot of family down there.  We were able to see Stephen's sisters - Aunt Lael, Aunt Racquel and her family.  We also went and visited Grandma Coley, Aunt Sherry and then stayed a night with Uncle Ben and Aunt Clara's family.  Everyone was too good to us!

Aunt Lael took us for a hike around Lake Saguaro.  We enjoyed the desert vegetation.  She also let the kids loose with her bag of quarters at Outdoor World's shooting gallery.  Thank you Lael!!!


The kids were swimming every chance they could.  One afternoon they practiced posed canon ball jumps.


Nathan's team didn't do very well, but he sooo enjoyed playing soccer as usual.  They thought that they would have an altitude advantage only to find out that the teams down in Arizona and from New Mexico have a "heat tolerance" advantage.  I was very proud of Nathan though.  He was awesome!

I also did a quick photo shoot of two cute sisters, Racquel's girls.  They really are cute with each other.

My friend Kim went down as well to see her mom.  She kept me laughing until my cheeks hurt.  She is just so funny!  ANYWAY, a big thanks to everyone who made it such an enjoyable trip!
