President's Day Weekend

We drove home to Arizona last weekend. We left right after school got out and drove halfway. We spent the night in Kanab. For dinner we went to Fernando's Hideaway and here is Mason sitting with Fernando. I thought for sure Fernando was going to come to life and kill us both. Creepy little puppet thingy.

We made it home the next day and the weather was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. It was about 75 - 80 the whole weekend. We left snow and highs of about 40. I had a hard time coming back.

Right when we got there they boys started on a project in the front flower box.

They sure were working hard. And this is what I did the whole time...

... I played with Kyle and Stacey's new puppy Beanie. She's a Siberian Husky and basically the sweetest puppy ever. I love her to death.

She kept climbing in the fountain. And now for the final project...

Ta-dah! We didn't have time to plant the flowers but it looks great!

As we were driving home we kept seeing all these balloon stands on the side of the road. When I was in high school you knew who was loved by who carried around the most balloons, teddy bears, and flowers. Mason thought this was hilarious being most of the teddy bears and balloons were so obnoxious. So Valentine's morning guess what my Valentine does to show me he loves me??

That's right. I think I had the biggest balloon in town. I sure am loved! :)

Then that night Lindsey and her husband invited us down for dinner and games in Tucson. I can't think of anyone else I'd like to have spent Valentine's with.

On Monday we went to the Reniassance Festival. So fun as always. Last year I volunteered Mason for every show so this year I promised that I would just let him enjoy the shows. So when the girl from this show asked for the strongest man in the audience I didn't even raise my hand. Haha... she pulled him up anyway.

I'm so proud.

These guys were SO talented! They were amazing!!

We had such a good day. They weather was sunny and warm. I got a slight tan on my pale, pale Utah skin. We saw fun shows and costumes.

Oh yeah... So I said I wouldn't volunteer Mason for any shows... but that didn't make my brother safe. He got called up/volunteered for on the Wild Mudman show. My camera was running out of batteries at this time so I only got an aftershot. What a good sport.

We love it!

I didn't want to come home. It was a combination of the warm weather and my family. I keep trying to convince my mom to come up here...!! She would love it....

What a good weekend. Should I even mention that it's snowing today and suppose to snow all weekend? Oh well... Spring will be here soon. (I hope.)

That puppy is SOOOOO cute! I've wanted one for so long, but with being in the military and having to move all the time, the thought of pulling over for potty breaks for a dog don't excite me.

Look at Beanie!! Holy cow she is so big and cute! Seems like it was only a couple weeks ago that she just barely fit in my hand!

Looks like you guys had a ton of fun... I'm so jealous of the warm weather!! Only a couple months till warm weather........ can we make it??

Because Viagra is a very potent drug, your physician will ask you lots of questions before pulling out his prescription pad. Because Viagra online affects your blood flow, if you have significant heart problems, history of stroke, or untreated diabetes or high blood pressure, Generic Cialis may not be the best match for your other health needs.
