We just got back a from a little getaway to the BEAUTIFUL Arizona desert. After years of gift giving failure, I finally succeeded in giving a decent gift. For Christmas I bought Weston a two day pass to a team roping school in AZ. He insisted that I come along and of course I obliged. Mark and Jenny Steiner and Weston's parents joined us as well as baby Hayes. It was the perfect weekend, with great weather and lots of time to relax.
This picture is at the front gate of the community we stayed in. We rented a house that was on a golf course and it was amazing. I am dying to take my kids there. They would LOVE it.
Hayes was a perfect gem and I was excited to wear all my cute boy summer clothes on him that he surely will be grown out of by the time our weather is warm enough for them. He spent his days lazily being pushed in the stroller and sporting his awesome shades.
We walked the Mesa Temple grounds on evening, that was amazing.
Watched some roping...
And spent a lot of time enjoying our private backyard patio and pool.
Weston performed his best swimming tricks...
We also walked the brand new Gilbert Temple grounds and honestly just enjoyed a whole weekend of perfect weather. I know I am just weird, but the whole time I kept thinking of how much fun my kids would have had on this trip and wished they were with us. I am not very good at relaxing when they are away from me. Next time they will most certainly be joining us!
