14 years...REALLY??

Today we celebrate 14 years of marriage...wow! When did we get so old? ;) We escaped for the night to Scottsdale and stayed at the swanky W Hotel. What a luxury! Plus since we stayed on a Monday night there was hardly anyone there. We had the entire roof top pool to ourselves...nice! It was so great to get away for a bit and do a little shopping, see a movie, go to a nice dinner, and relax in our own little oasis for a while. It was a perfect night! Thanks go to Uncle Matt who according to the boys' was the BEST babysitter. He did let them stay up till midnight playing Wii and snack on junk food after all! YIKES!! ;) I think they're looking forward to our next night away almost as much as we are! ;)

We've made it passed the 7 year itch...twice!!

When we told the hotel staff it was our anniversay they sent up some complimentary chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. We felt kind of bad just leaving the bottle there...maybe the maids enjoyed it for us! ;)

Bathtub in the living room...kind of different...but very relaxing while watching t.v.!

The pool deck even had white sand!

Quite the oasis on the roof in the middle of the city!

Such a treat to have the place totally to ourselves!

The floor of the pool had windows that looked through to the parking garage below.

The pool was gorgeous at night!

It pays to have friends that live in neighborhoods with nice ammenities....

With temps hovering right around 100 today, I decided to take my friend Breein up on her offer to go play at their water park! We had a BLAST!! Unfortunately, Tucson does not have a nice, big water park. Crazy I know! The one park we do have is very expensive and very old and dirty...ghetto is the word most of my friends have used to describe it. All 3 boys were entertained all day...London even skipped his nap and was still having so much fun! It was the best 20 bucks I've spent in a while. We are already planning our next visit back! Even with the HOT weather an 80+ pool sure feels nice!

1st Grade...Here we come!

Carson has survived Kindergarten and he had a blast doing it! Last week the school put on a little graduation ceremony for all of the Kindergarten kids. The program was very cute! Carson was so excited to show me the songs they learned and to showcase his dance moves! This year has given him such a great start and he can't wait to start 1st grade!

Waiting patiently for his turn to get his diploma.

His turn on the stage!

It's official!

His favorite part of the morning...the yummy cake!

Way to go buddy! We are so proud of you!
