We decided to ditch school already (still in denial it started) and head to AZ to see Aunt Hannah since she came home from her mission this last week. The kids were troopers and altho Cash was not happy about missing school we had a great time! Before we left we picked up griff from school and they were giving out icecream cones for the first week of school - Ivy enjoyed one too!
Of course we had to endure some LA traffic at 1 pm on a thursday - stood still not moving for 10 minutes. Luckily this was our only delay of the trip, and the kids were awesome travelers!
At 111 degrees in AZ there isn't much to do outside besides enjoy the pool. Our happy place!
Ivy had fun playing with Grandpa Charlie and giving him a workout!
We love Sister Brown! So happy to have Hannah home! She gave an incredible talk and was such a good missionary and it will help her in all areas of life as she continues on her journey - excited for her to start back up at BYU Idaho soon!
One of my favorite things to see in AZ are these orange trees, which reminds me of my grandparents and their yummy fresh juice they always would make for us! It was a very VERY hot run on saturday morning!
Cousin time fun in the pool Saturday! 1, 2, 3, jump!
This girl started out clinging to me and wouldn't even let go of me in the water, to full on jumping in and swimming every where in her puddle jumper!
Heidi, me, and Beth - so glad to have these sisters! They make life so much fun and are some of my most favorite people ever! Girl talk fun!
My handsome hubby!
Conquering her fear!
Leaving there was the most AMAZING sunset - which the pic doesn't do it justice but it was incredible!
Now we are back and while the boys are at school Ivy and I play! Love this time with her!
