I love her expression in these photos. Priceless, if I do say so myself. She loves herself a good pose and pout. This is another photo for the record books. I swear she doesn’t learn this from me …(right?). Did you know Bass Pro has an entire winter wonderland for kids inside? Who knew? My […]
My in-laws recently visited the Valley Verde Wine Trail, located in Northern Arizona. My father-in-law is a wine connoisseur – so if he says the wine was great, that means the wine was great! They started in Jerome, Arizona then worked their way to Cottonwood and then to Page Springs. Ending the day in Sedona with dinner at Elote Cafe. His pictures are amazing!
I think Ryan and I need to do the same. The Valley Verde Wine Trail is home to four Arizona wineries and eight tasting rooms. I’m sold!
Last year, my friends went wine tasting in Northern Arizona too. You can read all about Teri’s experience and see her photos here. Guess what, Ryan? Looks like we’re the last ones to the wine tasting party. Let’s go!
Before Kelsey got croup, Ryan and I found ourselves immersed in a five-star weekend. After taking in the Music Museum, we continued his 32 birthday celebration with a stay at The Phoenician. Thanks to our grandparents for watching the little one so we could enjoy adult time. The desert landscape at this resort is so beautiful, we couldn’t […]
My music-loving husband and I visited The Music Instrument Museum. We spent about 2.5 hours looking at exhibits and gallery’s featuring over 10,000 instruments from around the world. Rich on history and interactive fun, we had a blast and learned a lot. Upon arrival, you get a pair of headphones. As you enter each exhibit your […]
You can tell it’s cooling off because we’re actually able to go outside. Last weekend, we found ourselves at the Zoo. Kelsey loved the giraffe (“long neck” – she would say) and the elephant. The cows were “okay”. The turtles were “slow”, but the monkeys – those excited her. There were pumpkins inside the exhibits for the “boo at the […]
This morning we visited our local Farmers Market. Wow, they really do have everything. From pumpkins to herbs to fresh bread and pretty flowers. Tie dye underwear? Yep, they have that too. Kelsey was most interested in a pair of 3-day old goats that were visiting with their mom. Random? Sure. But a lot of fun nonetheless. Happy […]
I just heard about BeenBooed.com. It reminds me of May Day, when you drop off baskets at someone’s door – only to run away before they spy you giving them a fun basket full of treats. Never done that? (see nana, I told you no one has heard of May Day). Anyway, Been Booed works the same […]
We went under the sea last weekend with a visit to the Sea Life Aquarium. We saw big fish, small fish, scary fish and slimy fish. We even saw a 10 foot crab! Eek. Kelsey dove headfirst (literally) into a box of sand filled with fish fossils and she even touched her first Starfish (she’s […]
With kids, even the most mundane task is fun. Last weekend, we had to make a pit stop at the pet store for dog food. We took baby inside to show her around. She loved the fish section. As soon as I said, “fish” she sucked her cheeks into her mouth and made a “fish face”. We […]
This afternoon, we took our (almost) 14-month old to the Science Center. My husband is a science buff, so I knew he would love it. To my surprise, baby did too! She loved the interactive exhibits – and she loved following other kids around. Especially one little boy. She had no idea what she was […]
