This is the story of our crazy little family.We do not claim to have it all worked out perfectly. We do not claim to be experts. What we do know is that everyday is a new adventure. Everyday there will be some tears, some laughter, some anger, some misunderstandings, some joy, some sorrow and a whole lot of happiness and love! That is how we know we are doing some things right!

Vacationed Out

So we have made it on our second and final vacation of the summer...and it was a successful trip to say the least!!We headed out to Scottsdale, Arizona!! It is beautiful out there! The main reason we went there initially was because Dave had to attend Coldstone "school" as I refered to it with Sara whenever she cried that Daddy had to leave her. Coldstone as a company requires you to attend these marketing, sales, and basic business classes for those who bought into the business. I know it seems silly to think because Dave has already owned the two Coldstone stores for more than three years now but legally they finally caught up with him once he switched partners to his friend Ray and they realized neither of them have attended yet. Anyways Kelli, Sarah H, Sara, Dave, and I went out there and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and extremely hot hot weather. Kelli, Sara, and I did most of the sight seeing and exploring because the other two had classes all day long.

We went to the Phoenix Zoo, the Railroad Park, hung by the pool and shopped at the local shopping areas. Dave managed to sneak away one afternoon so we could go as just us as a family to the Phoenix hands-on science museum. We had a blast at every single thing we did and overall had a wonderful vacation!! I will definitely post some great and fun pictures as soon as I upload them. But now it is on to focusing on getting back into a routine and a schedule for September and school year!

Made it...First Vacation Leaving Sara home

Well our first vacation, Dave and I, without Sara. Sara stayed home with both sets of her grandparents. Dave and I had a wonderful time on our vacation to Vegas with my sister and her two friends. We went shopping, sight seeing, visited the Hoover Dam, and gambled (thankfully we did not loose our shirts and actually came out as winners) It was definitely difficult for me to leave Sara...don't get me wrong I knew she was well taken care of and was going to have a ton of fun with her grandparents but it was still hard for me to leave her because all I could think of was that she was going to wake up in the middle of the night in a panic and be looking for me and get upset. So a part of me did find it hard to not be a bit more sensitive to situations and comments but I had a wonderful, relaxing time on vacation non the less.

We are now looking forward to our trip to Arizona in a week. This trip Sara will be going on as well as Kelli and Sarah. It is a Coldstone related trip and we look forward to spending some quality time together. I can not wait!!
