Wow...I can't believe its been a whole month since we've updated! I appologize! Here are a few pictures from our Arizona adventures during our first 2 or 3 weeks in Arizona. We've done A LOT, and there's tons more to post, but this will have to do for now, as the other pictures are still on our other cameras, and this is all I have time for today. :o)

One of the first things we did when we got up in the mountains was go for a ride on Uncle Adam's boat. Cailyn wasn't too sure what to think at first:

But after they went around the lake once, she didn't want to come off. ALL the kids had a great time and we all had a blast out at the lake.

Another highlight of being out here is all the time we're spending with our families. We spend about a week in the Valley w/my family, then head up to the mountains for a week with Seth's family. We've also made a trip just the four of us to Colorado, as well as typical family activities. One of the kids' favorite things is playing with their cousins:

Our first couple of weeks out here was highlighted by the Olympics. All the kids (and grown ups!) loved it all. All the kids had to imitate their favorite athletes and events. Hannah's favorites were gymnastics, diving and swimming, particularly Michael Phelps. But all the kids had fun doing track and field races:

On your marks...get set....

We've really had a blast the past month and a half since we've been here. We have about 3 more weeks until we head out for more training for our job. We've got lots more pics to upload and things to blog about. We'll try to get those done soon...I know, Iknow, that's what I said last time. LOL
