Family Pictures

We got a least one good picture of everyone.  It was a Christmas miracle!

Happy Halloween!

From a little chick, a witch, a ninja turtle, and a skeleton balloon guy.

With a neighborhood party, a school friend party, trick-or-treating, and everything else, we were exhausted by the end of Halloween this year!

Sometimes she's nice...

We really really love those times!

We love Arizona Rains

A big monsoon before school starts is always a good thing! We spent the morning riding bikes and splashing in the puddles. Only one small bike crash brought some tears for Tanner.

Say Cheese!

When you're naked on the couch...

When you're playing with water...

Summer fun

A quick and very very hot round of mini golf on a summer day.

A little eclipse viewing.  We went to the library in Apache Junction to see it.  For some reason, my phone didn't save the pictures I took of everyone else.  My favorite part about the eclipse was how the temperature dropped by 10 degrees.  It was awesome on a hot day in AZ!

Once the sun is down, we don't mind the heat!

We spent an evening at Sealife Aquarium.  My kids enjoy this much more now that they're older.  They were able to read about the sea creatures and spend more than 5 minutes in the aquarium.  And of course if there's an activity involving water, then my kids will stay for hours. 

Lantern Fest at Schnepf Farm

We had the chance to attend Lantern Fest with Grammy back in April. Lantern fest is lighting and releasing Chinese lanterns just like in Tangled.  Pictures never do this justice.  It is the coolest thing to watch.  We started the night by playing games and roasting smores with friends, then everyone got to light their lanterns and release them.  Such an awesome night. The kids loved it.
