Sedona – Pt. 2 of 2

After getting a good nights rest, we enjoyed breakfast at the Hotel & then got ready for another day of adventures. The weather was absolutely incredible & we were so thankful because we thought it was going to be much colder than it turned out to be.

So the hike that we did a little bit of is a 6 mile roundtrip hike & you can even go further than that! The hike follows alongside a little river/stream and requires you to cross it 13 times! AH! (Queue my anxiety) – Thankfully Chad carried Presley over almost all of the ones we did because I’m pretty sure I would have fallen right in. It was absolutely gorgeous & Presley loved exploring. She fell asleep on Chad so when she did we turned around and headed back. She was in a dead sleep and when we passed someone with a little puppy and said, “Oh thats such a cute puppy!” she sat straight up and wanted to play with the puppy – it was so funny! sedona9

Presley was in a good mood because we were constantly moving and exploring & she didn’t have anytime to be cranky. We had a blast exploring & didn’t spend any money other than on our Hotel & Dinner so we stayed true to our ‘frugal lifestyle’.

Now I’m just dying to go back.

Sedona – Pt 1 of 2.

Chads on a small break from school (it’s actually a very perfect 3 weeks) so we’ve been trying to schedule lots & get lots of stuff done while he’s been home. We’ve had packed days & are getting projects done, and going on adventures & it makes me scared to have him go back to…

22 months – I almost have a TWO year old

I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that Presley is almost two. She still seems like my little tiny baby – but a two year old is huge! What happened? It’s almost brought me to tears several times seeing some new babies & realizing how big she truly has gotten. I’m kind…

MWU – Fall Festival

I love Chads school, they’ve got the best support system set up for the students family. They have events, and dinners, and lots of stuff for Presley and I to meet Chad at his school after class for. This last week they had a Fall Festival event so we went & had a blast. Presley…
