Arizona: Our First Family Vacation

Over Memorial Day Weekend we went to Arizona for multiple reasons. We wont get into those reasons at this time. But I'll share with you what we enjoyed there. Our drive in, M.E. teethed the whole way, and gained 3 new molars. She became a very grumpy girl our entire stay, and it didn't help that she was also terrified of her older and bigger cousins. Let's just say she clung to Mommy and whined or cried the majority of the time. We decided to get out and see a few things. On Saturday we went to this Ghost Town in Chandler called Rawhide.

Rock Climbing


A big smiling horse named Desperado

Then on Monday we took a drive to Tempe to test out the Tempe Town Lake and Cox Splash Pad. M.E. loved playing in the water and splashing in it.

Another fun fact: M.E. grew an inch and a half on our trip, began walking, picked up a cold from her cousin, and Robert got sun poisoning. I had a good time, I enjoyed the sun and the fun times. The night before we left we had s'mores with the cousins. I realized I didn't take pics of M.E. with her cousins due to her constant clinging to me.

M.E. slept most of the way home. So precious when she is asleep.
