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!

Fall at the Farm

We took our annual trip to Schnepf Farms this past weekend. We watched pig races, went on the rides, bounced on the giant blobs, had bike races, ate homemade ice cream, picked out our pumpkins for carving and even had a good roll in the hay! This means cooler weather is on the horizon! Yes!

Our Grand Canyon Adventure 2012

We finally got a chance to travel up to the Grand Canyon and see the majestic hole in the ground! The weather was beautiful and we got to take a little time out from the daily routine.

Getting ready for our hike.

Supposedly the crazy squirrels carry the plague....so we stayed a safe distance and took pictures.

Damara learned to roll her eyes on the trip. Hilarious!

Our favorite panoramic picture from the trip.

This is the life.

Okay guys stay off the rocks...you are giving mom and dad heart failure!


Damara wore more than actually got into her mouth!

No Conlan, that is not a gatling gun!

Here kitty, kitty!

2012 Arsenal Challenge

Yes, we are going to play the proud parents for a moment...bear with us! Conlan just finished his first tournament for the season and they did amazing! They won 1st place against the 3rd placed team in the state. They gave them a run for their money, but Con's team held their own. We are very proud of all of you, way to go guys/girls you earned it! 

Ballet Under the Stars

Every September, when the temperatures start to fall a tad, Ballet Arizona puts on several performances across the valley. We finally got to go and watch. We went with the cousins and all of the little girls were in heaven doing little leaps and dances with the performers. It was a great way to get the kids some exposure in a casual setting. It didn't hurt that there was a full moon bathing the scene in moonlight! Beautiful!

Our future ballerinas?

Demi was all tuckered out

Aisy was so excited that she wants to go again
