Arizona Reunion Trip

The kids and I decided to tag along with Grandma Karla and head to the family reunion in Arizona. We wanted more family time and thought this would be just the way to get it. We left California on Friday, December 26th and got into our room VERY late that night. The kids did so well and traveled like little pros. The next morning we woke up and decided we hadn't had enough of Uncle Matty, Auntie Michelle, and Baby Joey so we drove in our bright blue Jeep Patriot to Anthem. We hung out at their house, played at the park, and of course, rode the train! We got the whole gang on there...except for Uncle Matty. He was running with Tucker.

Tyler had fun going down the slides too. I don't know why the blog is posting the picture sideways like this...but I thought it was a cute picture to post.

Unfortunately, we had a bit of an emergency while we were in Arizona. The kids and I had stopped at the Target to buy some diapers and some apple juice and Lucout of the cart and hit her head VERY hard. She got sick on me and it freaked me out. So, Mommy and Lucy took a little ride in the ambulance to the Children's Hospital. Lucy got a catscan and the all clear. The picture below is in our hotel room (in her gown) after we got home. She did sustain a fracture in her skull...so we're trying to make sure our dangerous girl doesn't take another spill.

We had a lot of fun at the reunion and seeing family. On the last night of our trip a bunch of us cousins went to Peter Piper Pizza for dinner. We had SO much fun. We got 100 tokens and just went CRAZY. Uncle Matty was working all of us as the Ticket Nazi. He even had Tyler and Lucy grabbing tickets and adding them to the pile. It was so much fun and we had so many laughs. We ended up with 1,374 tickets and bought a bunch of junk to take home. It was so much fun and we laughed really hard.

Cute pics. I'm glad you were able to have fun at Peter Piper Pizza. Glen and I like to go to the arcade sometimes. Makes us feel like kids again. I actually was on a ride at the arcade that moved the day before I went into labor. Hmmm...I'll have to remember that for next time.
