And the rest of the random things we did living in AZ for a couple months!
David ate a smurf...

I had to document how much I LOVE my hairstylist and will NEVER be going to anyone but her again for the rest of my life.

David did the most classic Papa activity...

Alexis did the most classic Grandma Kerry activity...

We had a way too short meet up with the Holtgrewe's when they came into to town for just a couple days.

David got in some Uncle NayNay snuggles

We spent a LOT of time outside and Grandma and Papa's house because they have the grandkid dream backyard.

David fell in love with this water baby and even tried to take her in his backpack when we were leaving to head to El Paso!

The girls got to have their first Krispy Kreme donuts for getting A's on their report cards.

And David reaped those rewards as well!

We spent some time chilling with the bestie.

Tried to fit as many girls onto one chair as possible.

Represented our favorite team.

Just hung around.

Enjoyed every minute of living close to our cousins.

We got Aunt Lenored (My Great Aunt always gives everyone she can get a hold of kisses and she will reapply lipstick in between so you are always sure to have a good mark!)

And we danced the night away at my cousin Bridgette's wedding! :)

We really did love our short time living in AZ!

Since I was a bit lonely at my last race and Alexis has been wanting to do a race with just her and I, I jumped at the chance to do a 5k in September that was an awareness for pediatric cancer run!  They had lots of stuff directed toward kids and Alexis loved it!!  The best part for me was during the run Alexis looked over at me and said mom this is really fun!  My little runner!  She had a great time and even placed 2 for girls under 12!  I was so impressed with her! 

Ready to get this race started!

Ummm they had the PHX Suns Gorilla there!  I remember going to Suns games with my dad and LOVED running into the gorilla!! :)  So I embarrassed Alexis and asked for a selfie!

Run complete and showing off our bling (Lex also got a little stuffed animal which she loved!!)

Keeping our Denny's tradition alive and well!

She'll be getting a 5k in under 30 in no time! ;)

Probably one of my favorite race pics ever!  Shakas, Hawaii shirts, and running with my girl!

My family had one of those rare weekends that we were all in AZ at the same time (with Travis in the Army and my brother Nate in the Air Force it hasn't happened in a while) so both my parents wanted to get pictures done.  Only getting pictures with kids is NOT fun so my parents kindly said they would just switch out and then we only had to do it once!  My mom has a cute little backyard so we just did the pictures back there!  They turned out so cute so I had to share! 
Mom and Mike! :)

Dad and Ruth!

Grandma and Grandkids!

Yes my brother and I realize our kids are all VERY blonde and all with blue eyes.  Luckily Jessica is pregnant and with her dark hair hopefully we will get some brunettes in there!! HA!

My sweet Fam!

Love them!

Ok I just love this picture of me and my 3 younger brothers!!

Silly faces!

Love these cousins!!!
