Lizzie's Visit

On Lizzie's way down to Tucson she stopped by our house and stayed for a few days. Here are some pictures from her visit.

While Liz was here we went to a football game for the local high school. I think Liz got more than she bargained for in watching the girls ;)

Harquahala Peak Observatory

About an hours drive from Salome is a 10 mile four-wheel drive trail that leads to an observatory built in 1920. It was used to measure the sun's intensity and affect on the weather. The observatory was abandoned in 1925 in favor of a better spot located in California. The observatory has since been restored and now there is a scenic byway created by the State that keeps it alive. Brian and I heard about it shortly after moving here and have been anxious to check it out so, Monday we made a trek up there.

Devyn's Birthday

Devyn's birthday was an interesting one this year. For starters it fell on Tuesday and Brian had to work that night, so I made her pan'cake's for breakfast and let her blow out the candles on those. I had planned on filling her special day with things she loved to do, going to the library, getting the mail and playing at the park, but instead I had to drive an hour to our Dr's office to get a perscription for a UTI. I felt so bad. But to make it all better on Wednesday we went to Chuck E. Cheeses. She was so amazingly excited! It was fun to see her actually comprehend what was going on. She loved seeing Chuck E. come out and she was so happy to get all her presents. All in all I think it was a very memorable party for her.

One of the presents Devyn got at her party was a Tinkerbell dress. She was so excited she started undressing on the spot! She put it on and left it on the rest of the night, but I think the best part of the story is this. In the toddler section are the rides you can find outside of grocery stores that you put a quarter in and you get a 30 second ride, these were Devyn's favorites, so she would run up to her grandma get a token, choose wich ride she wanted and buckle herself in. Well, at one point she got her dress tangled in the buckle and couldn't get out. She called for help and Brian's sister Cassey went over to see what was wrong and Devyn exclaimed "I have to go potty, and I don't want to go on my new dress!" So after going to the bathroom Devyn turned to Cassey and said "Thank you aunt Cassey I didn't want to get my new dress all wet."

My my my, It has been a while

Well, in recent news we have moved into our new house! We originally had the girls in the bigger of our two bedrooms but have recently discovered that it is harder to keep cool so, we recently moved them into the smaller room and they seem to be doing just fine. Now we have more room for our guests to sleep ;)
