Kindred Spirits

One of my dearest friends, Anna Lisa, came to the beach from Texas for a family vacation!  We have not seen each other for at least 10 years- what a treat!!!  She is still, of course, completely beautiful (no wonder Mike Zaharis asked her out :)!  I have a feeling this will be one of the perks of living in a vacation destination- woo hoo!!

Pizza on the beach!
Our collective offspring! (Anna has 4 girls, we have begun the matchmaking process)
Jacob as a sea monster!  Scary.  And gross.

Happy Father's Day...and other news!

We are finally reunited!  It was a great Father's Day, complete with filet mignon hot off the grill, and being able to consume it outside on the most beautiful day you have ever seen!

In other exciting news:  Mia is FINALLY walking!!  She's been doing it so long holding onto someone's finger, that she practically took off running!
And she REALLY likes whipped cream!!

The Champ II!!

Talk about going out with a BANG!  Jarom's team won the district championship last week, and took the league championship tonight!  Just like Jacob, it was the second year in a row!!  Way to go Jarom- you're amazing!

Thanks Ang!

My dear friend Angie caught me in a weak moment at a recent get together (I TRY to be a "no sugar mom").  We almost died laughing when Mia licked clean a discarded plate with a few smears of chocolate on it.  Check out the SUPER CUTE digital scrapbook pages she made.  If only I were so creative!

Farewell, My Friend!

It was a beautiful front flip!
Hmm... not really sure.

We are counting down the last week in our beloved pool (ok- beloved by the kids, mom has sort of a love/hate relationship).

Just Another CrAZy Day!

Exhibit A:
Okay, call me the worst mom ever- but I HAD to post this picture of Jacob.  He crashed hard on the sofa with a migraine, and ended up looking like the model for a Rubens painting.  (sorry sweetie)

Exhibit B:
Mia wakes up with AWESOME bedhead!

The Champ!

Tonight was a great night to be a D-Back!  Jacob's team took the championship for the SECOND year in a row (and that never happens!)  Congrats mister!  You played your heart out!

Signs of an Arizona summer.

So... how can you tell it's getting REALLY hot in Arizona?  When your boys willingly submit to getting their heads sheared!  You should have seen the pile of hair.  Reaction: "We look like Jack Johnson!"
