Picnic at the Park

We had a picnic at the park on Friday. Yummy food - avocado turkey sandwiches, blue corn chips, strawberries, and orange juice. It was pretty windy but I said I would take the wind over the heat. It was really nice to have it cool down and Eisley didn't seem to mind the wind. I think we will do this more often...hopefully the heat won't stop us.


  Our little family on the walk around the lake.

  We saw some ducks and boy they are not scared of people at all! It was cool to get so close to them.
 

 Eisley fell asleep so we ended up walking around the lake again.

 Yay for awesome weather! This weekend has been great full of long walks, and open windows.
 I am glad we stayed in the Valley for a good weekend!

5 Months + Solar Eclipse

Eisley is now 5 months! She is growing and changing everyday. I feel blessed every single day to have her our lives. She keeps me busy and always wants to be doing something fun. She gets bored quickly and we have to find things to do to keep her entertained. Thankfully she is starting to scoot a little bit and can get around the room by rolling and inching her way. We like to go to Snowflake because she loves being outside and looking at all the trees and flowers. She loves watching all of her cousins play and especially being with Grandma and Grandpa.


The flower matched her dress!



Pretty flower

Eat the flower

Eisley loves her Grandma so much! She loves to help pull weeds and looking at all her pretty flowers.

 Eisley has discovered her toes and they are quite tasty!

Cousin Milo! They are both so cute and love their Grandpa!
 


I have to mention that Solar Eclipse was awesome! We watched it through welding masks and played with Shadows. I hope in 18 years to see it again!




The shadows from the trees looked like tons of moons.

Left side of our shadows were fuzzy and the right were hard lines.

Onward ever onward

I know this is from awhile back but I have felt busy and adjusting to not having Tilly. We miss her but know its for the best. Tilly's new mom has sent me pictures a few times and she is getting spoiled! They had a birthday party with a cupcake and party hat for her :) We are happy she is in a good place and have been so grateful that they are keeping in contact. I feel like it is an open adoption expect with my sweet dog. 
 On to new things...

Easter weekend in Snowflake
Eisley is growing up so fast! I sometimes wish it would slow down but then again it gets easier now that she can roll all over the floor and grab toys to play with. We went to Snowflake this last week and Grandma Mills spoiled her and all she wants is to be held now. We are having fun with her smiles and personality.

I am excited for the summer. Anthony has finished this semester at ASU honors College with all A's!! Yay so proud of him and he has one more year left. It is getting closer to the end. He has a month break and then will start a paid internship in Phoenix. When he is in Florida for training Eisley and I are going to be in Snowflake and probably traveling back and forth quite a lot. We are planning to go camping a few times too. Here's to fun times ahead!
