About Us

We are a family of 5 that moved from California to Arizona about 8 years ago. We love it here! We love to watch movies, enjoy the great outdoors when it's not blazing hot, play sports, hike, ride bikes and spend time together! Life is awesome and we wish the same to all of you!

Happy Valentine's Day

We're Baaaack!!!

We realize it has been a while since we have updated the blog. Our sincerest apologies. Unfortunately we have been having some serious technical difficulties. Since mid-December both of our computers have taken turns crashing, recovering, spending time in the shop, only to crash again. This is the first moment that our computers have actually behaved themselves enough to allow us to get on and update. Please see the new entries below.

Our charming little Conlan.

Our impish little Aislinn.

Love and hugs to all of you, we are back!!!!

Rodeo Days

Conlan's kindergarten class had a rodeo for the kids a few weeks back. They set up various stations for the kids to rotate through the activities. They got to: pan for gold, horse race with the horses they made at home, sing campfire songs, play horseshoes, square dance and eat real cowboy food. It was super cute and the kids had a great time.


We got to take a family trip out to Cali between Christmas and New Year's. Jenna's sister, Audra, was expecting baby #4 on New Years Eve. Emmalina was born on the 31st and helped us all bring in the new year. Jenna got to stay an extra week with Aislinn to help Audra recover from her c-section and juggle the kids for her. Bryan and Con had to come home because school and work were awaiting them. We had so much fun getting to see family and friends while we were there!

Here she is, Baby Emmalina! Such a sweetie pie!

Proud Mama Audra.

Great Grandma Barbara with Emma. That makes the score 10 grandkids and 7 great-grandkids.

Aisy and cousin Tristan. They were buds while we were there.

The matching jammy bergade. We tried to get a cute picture of the 3 of them, but due to the monkey antics this is the best one we got!

Aislinn's 1st Birthday

We had 2 celebrations this year.Mom and Aisy were in California visiting family during Aisy's actual 1st birthday. We celebrated with cupcakes. Let's just say that Aislinn has discovered the sugary goodness in paper baking cups. The pandoras box has been opened, she loves her cupcakes now!


Tinkerbell helped us bring in her 1st birthday for our little fairy girl.

She went for it! Face first, no holding back!

An icing mask. We hear it is good for the complexion.


When we got home to Arizona we celebrated with another round of cupcakes.

More interested in the paper!

Good things can come in big packages too! Aisy opening up her new kitchen.

She spends lots of time in her kitchen now preparing delicious, gourmet, plastic meals.
