Zoo, Hockey, Picnic, Repeat

First off, I have to apologize, but this photo journey you are about to take has been posted backwards. I always forget how the images upload and well, it is backwards, so until I get another blogging host, you will have to deal with thinking in backwards terms. Therefore, we will recap the weekend journey from Sunday moving backwards.....

Sunday was Poppi Jeff's *9th birthday! He wanted to head up to Mt. Lemmon to celebrate, which is where Pj grew up as a child. It was GORGEOUS, upper 60's and sunny, but still some snow to play in. We had a picnic on a family friends' lot and got to visit all of our favorites. Debbie's store, good friends and smelled the cookie's from the cookie cabin...










Back up to Saturday night where we took Presley to her first Pro hockey game!!! Okay, so here I have to admit we are crazy..what were we thinking taking Kash to a full day of watching daddy play hockey to a pro hockey game sans nap? I don't know, I am still wondering how we thought this was a good idea. Actually it wasn't as horrible as I am making it sound, both the kids really were wonderful considering the circumstances and thankfully the hockey game ended right about the time Kash was done too. Here is our family in front of the huge mascot!



Earlier we went to an outside rink where PJ was in a hockey tournament...he did awesome and the tough guy manages to get a penalty in every period. We enjoyed miniature golf and pizza rink-side. We were also lucky enough to have both kids have diaper explosions within the first 10 mintue of arriving. I pulled Presley out of her carseat and wondered why her back and front were soaked...hmmm could it be a giant poop explosion on the first leg of the trip...well YES of course it was!! Once I got her a wipey bath and changed we headed in where Kash went from having a bone-dry diaper to having Lisa poke me in my side "Kodi Look" and there running down his leg and onto his sandels was a pee explosion. Lisa got a real treat since I was nursing and took on full mommy duty to take and change him into some dry duds. The day couuld really begin now that we got that all over, nothing like travelign with kids ;-0

Me, passing the time...

It was tiring, but it was fun!!! We had such a great time with our friends and family- just knwoing the memories we are creating is so worth every diaper explosion, tantrum, break down, gas money, food money and a-hem speeding ticket.

Family trips are so event-full aren't they?! Fun, and exhausting! LOVE the pics, Presley is getting so big...she is just beautiful, poop explosion or not. Looks like a great weekend!
