This last weekend we had the chance to head to Arizona to take Eden back to her mommy, daddy, and brothers and to witness Phoenix's blessing on Sunday. We got there on Friday night, met Connie between her house and Lexie's where we could get Eden to her and have her take Tibi too to stay at their house. Then we headed to Lex and Sharrid's to sleep. The next morning we got up and all met up at the city pool for the sun and swimming. It was a hot, perfect day, which we were glad about, because they have been having monsoon weather lately, which brings the lightening and rain. We had a great hour and a half there, just long enough for the kids to have fun and get tired. First we had to get them all sunscreened up!

After the pool, we headed straight to the mall to eat before heading back to Connie and Peter's house to play games and have fun.

We had plenty of time before church to make sure the boys were ready and lookin' good! Lexie had bought Marcelus this cute suit through Amazon and boy, did he look smashing! He is ready to be the next bishop of their ward!

Grandpa getting him all ready and straightened out. Only Grandpa Willard can do this!
Like grandfather, like grandson.

It was Phoenix's day. He was blessed by his father, with grandpa Willard, adopted Grandpa Shirley, and Uncle Peter helping out. He is a sweet little boy who is loved by a lot of people.

The table spread was NOT condusive to my trying to eat well. (M&Ms, cookies, cake, candies,etc.) Lexie DID buy some trailmix for me. (I didn't have any!)

After church we headed over to Lexie and Sharrid's for lunch and changing clothes. The kids were having a great time chasing each other and screaming. It gave the moms and dads some time to eat first. It was a great weekend to see everyone and catch up.
