Getting Pampered

In Cali, the boys went to the desert so the girls went to get our toes done.  The little girls had such a fun time picking out their nail polish color and what design to get.  It was so fun to watch their faces as they got their toes painted.

1st Annual Cherpumple Rumble

For Thanksgiving, we had a delicous dinner with all the trimmings.  We also had something else...called a Cherpumple.  A Cherpumple is a cherry pie, a pumpkin pie, and an apple pie baked inside a humongous cake.  Sounds kinda gross, right?  Well, it is.  After inspecting and prodding it, the kids begged to have a food fight with it.  After many please, please, pleases...the moms gave in.  It was messy.  It was disgusting.  It was hilarious.  A big thank you to Joyce for making this monstrosity and starting the Cherpumple Rumble.


Ready, set, GO!

The disturbing aftermath

Mommy-daughters date


It was supposed to be a mommy-daughter date with just Mallory, but she's a sweetie and invited her big sis to go along.  Obviously, the venue was Mallory's pic.

Tea Partaaaay

The weather has finally cooled down and the neighborhood girls decided to have an outdoor tea party.  What's on the menu?  Traditional high tea eats including: ramen, limeade, apples and oreos.
I've been trying to catch up on our pictures for quite a while now.  Daniel found a way to help me: he erased all the pics on my phone.  Yes, it's depressing.  But hey, I'm all caught up now.  No more excuses.

Balboa Beach

For fall break, we headed to Cali for the weekend.  Balboa beach was beautiful.  The waves were huge and Daniel laughed and laughed while poor Connor was pounded.

The Pump Track at McDowell Mountain

Saturday will loaded up all the kids and all the bikes and headed to McDowell Mountain.  We had the pump track to ourselves which was really fun.  It was hot though.  

Megan's first girl's camp

I was SO excited for Megan to go to Girl's Camp.  I have such great memories of my camp trips.  She had a wonderful time and camp back tired, happy, and dirty.  

4th of July

Watching fireworks at Ahwatukee Park.  I think this was the first year we didn't have a lightning storm during the fireworks.  It was hot, but still fun. 

Saguaro Lake

Only 45 minutes from our house there are lakes and rivers.  I had no idea.  You can also go tubing down the Salt River and the water is actually cold!  So nice to find a way to cool off during the 115 degree heat.
