We had a wonderful time in Arizona visiting Jeff, Noelle and Addysen, as well as our friends Adam and Erica. It worked out really well flying right out of Bellingham and straight into Mesa which is only about five-ten minutes from both Jeff and Noelle and Adam and Erica. It was fun to introduce our friends to Jeff and Noelle because they live so close and actually go to the same church, but had never met. Here are some pics from our much needed vacation!
Johnny, Jeff, and our friend Andrew (who traveled with us) all enjoyed a day golfing
Putting around before they tee'd off
I drove the golf cart for about a half hour while I waited for Noelle to pick me up
Addysen sure enjoyed her uncle Johnny
It is so fun to play with Addysen now, as she is very active end enjoys interacting with her toys...or just putting them in her mouth :)
We got to see a pre-season Mariners vs. Rockies game (Johnny and I's rivalry teams)
6$ seats on the grass!
We rented a boat on Saturday with Adam, Erica, Andrew, and Erica's friend Jaime...it was a blast and the scenery was amazing! We went in and around the canyon and explored.
Johnny found a rope swing on the bank so we anchored and he and andrew swam to shore and tested it out
Jaime and I were the brave ones to try the tube out first
here we go
A snap shot of Johnny riding the tube, I decided to leave the thrashing through the waves and getting thrown off the tube part out, out of respect for our parents :)
driving the boat
not a way you want to end the day...getting towed back to shore by strangers because our rental boat decided to stop working. We weren't sure if it was the battery or if the starter got too hot... but after flagging this boat down they were kind enough to bring us back to the docks.
Thankfully this burrito stand was closed on Sunday, because the boys were on a mission to find an authentic taco stand.
An evening walk with Addy
It was so fun to spend time with friends and family!
