Flagstaff Vaca!

The extreme heat started awfully early this summer in AZ... So we decided to break away for the July 4th holiday and rented a home up in the mountains of Flagstaff for a week.  The kids were absolutely thrilled to be able to play outside and enjoy the fresh mountain air.  We shared a home with the Wichansky clan, and had an absolute blast as always!  The kids are at such an enjoyable age, life has gone from a real challenge to an absolute blast.  We couldn't be happier!

Swim Fest!

The nice mountain weather allowed the kids to swim until their hearts were content  The club pool had a waterslide, and the twins were courageous enough to go down on their own for the first time ever! Of course that was followed by 700 more trips down the slide...  They were hooked!  Marc & Lex's kids, Elie & Devyn, were fantastic helping out with the twins in the pool.  Brandon has become a very good and safe swimmer. Aubrey is a good swimmer, but absolutely does not understand her limitations and is extremely dangerous...  She dives into the deep end and smiles at us as she sinks to the bottom!  So surprising from the crazy girl.

Happy 4th of July!!


The weather was absolutely amazing up in the mountains of Flagstaff, and we were able to spend a long 4th of July afternoon swimming and playing outside!  We bought tickets to the local fireworks show that evening and enjoyed a great BBQ while the kids played on the golf course.  A very relaxing family getaway!


Anytime we get near a gym or park, Mia asks for Daddy to 'train' her!  She gets very serious about her physical fitness and we spend loads of time putting her through the paces...  While in Flag, we found a great park in the community we rented in, and she went nuts on the rock climbing wall and jungle gym.  She's one fit little girl.  And sadly, she's not so little anymore... 

Baby Obsessed!!

Aubrey has had a bit of a baby fixation ever since our close friends, Marc & Lex, had a beautiful new baby, Skye.  She's always giving Skye kisses, and absolutely lights up when she enters the room...  It's so cute to see how early the maternal instinct kicks in!

Computer Geek!

Big Boy has really gotten into the various computer Apps, and loves to mimic his older sister by pretending to be navigating the Web.  In reality, he spends most of his time searching Netflix to try and find movie versions of his favorite books.  He's a handsome little man!
