Arizona

So I completely forgot about this little trip I took, the 2nd week of July I drove my niece back out to Arizona and the girls and I stayed a couple of days before heading home. The girls were absolutely amazing on the drive there and back and I was quite impressed with myself for making the trip without Eric. We had a fun little stay at Eric's parents house, we did a little birthday celebration with family there and I got to see Nanette!! Nanette is a good friend who I used to live next door too, we still talk on the phone a lot but its nothing like just hanging out.

Kate and her cousins McKenna and Carson.
Me and Nanette - (Kate took this picture) and all the kids.

Nanette's boys showing off their tricks


Sara's little birthday shindig - she was spoiled by everyone.

It rains - even in AZ - I'm not sure my pictures capture it but it was pouring down.

Kate Lynn and Katelyn, Kate really loved hanging out with Eric's cousin Katelyn and loved it that their names were the same.
Swimming in Grandma's pool, Kate is a fish, Sara doesn't quite last as long.

Heading home it was only 86ยบ and one great thing about AZ - gas was cheap!!

I think it might be some kind of weird cosmic thing that it was only 86 degrees in AZ...WOW! It was nice to see you in a couple of those, even if it was from the side! :)

OHMYGOSH! The picture of you with Nan, and then all the kids together, Claire I have tears in my eyes! I can't believe I'm doing this! I just had this total wave of nostalgia and I miss you all so much. That little pocket of N. Hollywood - you and Nan and your families - how special that was. How rare! Huge hugs to you for sharing those. I love seeing you and your family. You are just one in a million, girlie!

I'm glad you had a fun time! The pictures are cute. :) We were there the week before you and the weather was gross 105+ everyday. You lucked out with that 86.
