Happy Spring

My parents left for New Hampshire last night, after a 9 day visit. It was great to see them as always, and even more great this time because no one was sick. The boys were sick to various degrees the last time both sets of grandparents visited, so this past week was a happy change of pace. It was all about having fun and enjoying the warm (and at times, hot) Phoenix sunshine!

Saturday, we all caught up and hung out here. We set up the bouncy house, the boys played with Spencer's new bow and arrow, and we cooked on the grill. Sunday was more of the same, except the location changed to Sandi's house. On Monday we went out for lunch, and the boys were happy to show Mom and Dad their newly found favorite playground on the way home.

Thursday was the zoo, which is always fun, followed by another dinner out. On Friday, we headed up to Camp Verde, to Mom and Dad's new house. It's about an hour away, the same distance we were in New Hampshire. But it's a BEAUTIFUL ride, and I can never make it without commenting on how incredibly gorgeous this state is! The boys spent the afternoon and evening with Mom and Dad... shooting a foam shooter, baking cookies, playing hide and go seek, and being pool sharks in the club house... while Mike and I went to Sedona for dinner and a movie. Talk about gorgeous! Sedona is fast becoming one of my favorite places.

Saturday we hung out here and watched a movie, and on Sunday we went north again, to go to church in Camp Verde. People were nice and the service was great... but the best part was that the kids decided, very happily, to go to kids' church, and had a wonderful time. Even Everett surprised us by going off to the nursery when a sweet woman came up and asked him (and us) if he wanted to go play. I would never leave my kids just because it was what I was expected to do, but given the choice they wanted to. They wanted to, and they had a blast.

Here are some pics from the week:
