Our Trip to Arizona

 
Posted by Picasa

Well on Wednesday, March 19 the kids and I and my Mom headed to Arizona. My sister Janna lives in Laveen (Suburb of Phoenix), and there is an Easter Play that they put on at the Mesa Temple the two weeks before Easter. My Mom chose to stay with my sister, strangely :) she decided that staying with me and three little kids in a hotel may not be very quiet hee hee. The hotel was very nice though and there was a huge bed for James and I to share and the girls had a pull out bed in a little living room. Once we got to Janna's house on Wed. we hung out for a few min and then headed to the Cracker Barrel for dinner. Thursday was a busy day, I made plans to meet up with my good friend Mesa who lives in Tucson and the play was that evening. Mesa and I did a little shopping at Target and then got a late lunch. Even though we only got to see each other for a little bit I was glad that she made the drive from Tucson to see me. That night was the play and I wish I could say that it was really good but I unfortunately didn't get to see much of it between feeding James and then Grace "Wanting to go home" I ended up walking the temple grounds with the two little ones until it was over. What I did see though was really well done. On Friday we went to see Horton Hears a Who, which was really good! Then we went to the water park that was located just outside the theaters, the kids had so much fun getting soaked! We also did a mini-egg hunt with cousin Ethan at the hotel which the girls throughly enjoyed. We left Saturday morning and drove the 6 hours back to Vegas. Thanks Janna and Dave for showing us a good time it was fun to see you guys!

I'm lovin' the picasa collages. I've been thinking about doing that but haven't yet and now you're gonna make me look like a copycat. ;P Just playing! Your blog looks beautiful!

Your collages are so cute! Did you get them off the same site as your new template?:)

Your pictures look great! Sounds like you had a blast. I love Arizona in the spring and will miss our annual trip there.

Wow, looks like so much fun in Arizona! I really like the new background on the blog and the collages are awesome. Wish I could give all those grandkids a hug...

Your trip sounds fun! That is odd that your sis lives in Laveen because one of my best friends, Bethany, lives there now, and it seems pretty small. I wonder if they know each other.
