Brace Yourself.

April 23, 2010

We just got back from a few days in Arizona, we went to visit the family and to get away from the day-to-day of Omaha.  Here are the greatest hits of the 124 pictures I took while we were there.  Get ready for “photo dump 2010”.

First stop was, Alice’s Great Grandmother, Shirley.  Even though Grandma wasn’t feeling too well she entertained Alice for as long as Alice would let her.

Who knew there were ducks in Arizona?  Well there are, and we fed them.

We stopped and smelled the flowers.

We goofed off in Grandpa Bob’s front yard.

We absolutely trashed Grandpa Bob’s house.  We left no stone unturned.  Just a heads up, there might still be a dirty diaper under the couch.  Sorry.

Sarah and Alice swam.  The weather was perfect the entire time we were there.  A little chilly by Tucson standards but really nice.

The first two mornings we went running in Sabino Canyon, which is conveniently right outside Grandpa Bob’s front door.  It was really a pretty place.  Grandpa and Alice would hang out so that Sarah and I could go running.   On the last day we were in town we all went to Sabino Canyon and went for a long walk.

Alice insisted on pushing the stroller on most of the walk.  If you look closely you can see her tiny fists clenching just below the stollers handles.

All in all it was a great trip.  Getting to see my Grandparents was awesome.  Alice being able to finally meet her Great Grandmother, and to sit on her lap and spend some time was worth more that its weight in gold.

Having family scattered across the country is tough.  I didn’t really realize how much I loved and missed them until I had a family of my own.  Thank you for having us.  We love you.

Sarah, Alice, and Nick.
