Got Brianna's ears pierced


So on a whim my sister-in-law and I decided to get our girls ears pierced. Brianna always plays with mine. It was actually Randy's idea. He thought she'd be cute with them pierced...as if she's not cute without them. She was tough. She only cried for a minute or so. That night at bedtime she said "Mommy, can I take my earrings out now?" I thought it might have been a bad choice at that point but she has been loving them. They're really cute!!

Our weekend camping trip...



Check this out...I am posting again and it's only been a week, not over a month. Maybe I'm actually getting the hang of this.
So this past weekend we went camping just west of here to Hassayampa River. It was a pretty cool place. We had never been there before but heard about it from some friends. We went there to ride quads. My kids absolutely love camping and are actually perfect (well, almost) when we go. They are just outdoors kind of people...so are Randy and I so that works out well.
It was a really relaxing trip! I guess that's a good start to TWO weeks of spring break now.

Not so good at this...

OK, so I've been getting razzed about not keeping my blog up-to-date. I guess I'll have to try harder. Maybe if I do it more often it won't take me 20 minutes to figure out what account I signed up under and how to post something new. I'm telling you I am technologically challenged :) After this post, I'm hoping to figure out how to add a slideshow.
I did get a camera in the past couple weeks so now I have no excuses for not having pictures. I guess I'll have to inundate my blog with pics of all the cuteness that happens in our house. Since it's been over a month since I last posted I'll give a shortened version of everything that's gone on. We've been having a blast around here.
In February we took the kids up north to the SNOW!! They had a blast. We went tubing with some cousins. I got to drive up and down the mountain of mud. It was quite interesting as we would start sliding every once in a while and I could see the HUGE drop off on the side of the mountain. My sister-in-law was cracking me up as she would grab onto the center console as if it was going to save her. Our lovely white Suburban was no longer white. It was a huge heap of red/brown mud...very fun!
The next weekend we took an adult only weekend...my 3 brothers and their significant others as well as another couple. Wow was that fun! We went and stayed in an awesome cabin that was 4500 square feet in Showlow. Then we went skiing at Sunrise resort. Talk about the best weekend ever. It was nice to enjoy some adult company, kid free. The skiing was great. There was a lot of powder. It was only my 2nd time skiing but I had lots of fun falling and getting back up. The green started getting boring so we went to blue. The only bad part about falling so much was that the snow was up to my shoulders when I'd fall. We're definitely planning another adult trip.
March has already been full of quite a few events and it's only been a a week and a half into it. We have gone to a spring training baseball game in Surprise which the kids loved. We went on a field trip to a dinosaur museum. The weather has been beautiful so we've gone to a few parks. We finished up our co-ed softball season (we got 2nd). Just this past weekend we planted a garden at my brother's house. That was very fun. I can't wait until we actually get some produce growing. We planted everything we could think of...tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, green peppers, strawberries, cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, radishes, corn, watermelon, canteloupe. I think that's it.
OK, is everyone happy now?? I'll try to do better, I promise :)
