Last Weekend

Bill has been working extra long hours, and so family time has been limited lately to say the least. However, this last weekend, we got him all to ourselves...we definitely took advantage of it. On Friday night, we got takeout from Liberty Market, and then let Will play around in the downtown Gilbert splash pad. This is one of our favorite summer weekend activities...Liberty Market is super yummy and the water feature creates a really cool ambiance where the kids can have fun and the adults can sit and relax (and eat out in peace). Of course, we ended the night with DQ.



Cuddles with Dad
On Saturday, we went to the Sea Life Aquarium and Rainforest Cafe in Tempe. It was really cool! It's very kid-friendly, and they had an entire hallway that was made of see through glass where fish were swimming all around you. After a long afternoon nap, we headed up to Kierland to visit H&M and then over to Fry's grocery store for some of the best sushi ever!!

On Sunday, we had a great day at church followed by dinner at our good friend's, the Rigby's. Thanks for the awesome quesadillas Rick!! It was such an awesome weekend...what a treat! Aside from the 106 degree weather that seems everlasting right now, I felt like we were on vacation! I wish there were more weekends like this.

WIll's First Day of Preschool

William started a little neighborhood preschool class today. He was so excited, and his teacher Miss Carly said that he did really well. He got a little upset towards the end when the kids started to leave. He learned about the letter A, the number 1, the color red, and the circle shape. He looks like such a little boy in this picture. I had so much fun walking him to his class, but I was definitely a little sad knowing that this resembles one of the milestones of him growing up.

Happy Camper!

Will is very proud of his new backpack that Dad got him.

His first piece of artwork!
