Wednesday Field Trip to Jump Tucson

November 30, 2017

There aren't too many indoor kids activities here in Tucson, something that was a huge surprise to me during our first summer here.  When a friend told me that a new place had just opened up, we headed right out to try it. Jump Tucson is an inflatable activity center, with lots of things to keep kids busy and a toddler area for the little ones.  We played for three hours and all the kids had a blast!

Water's Hair Cut

November 28, 2017

Water's hair has been growing crazy-fast lately!  I took him for a haircut in August (after almost a year of growing it out) and it was already long again.

Decorating for Christmas

November 25, 2017

Since we're going to my mom's house for Christmas this year, we decided to decorate early this year so that we could make the most of the holiday spirit in the house.
The Christmas tree is in the office area this time.  It just seems to fit there but since it's out of the way, the kids aren't paying it as much attention as they did last year.  On one hand, I'm a little sad that they're not as excited about it and on the other, I'm relieved to not have to tell them to stop touching it all the time like I did last year. #momproblems

Thanksgiving

This year, I'm thankful for these crazy kids- they keep me busy but they also keep me laughing.

Zoom Zoom at the Children's Museum

November 18, 2017

We love the Tucson Children's Museum!  They sponsored a "touch-a-truck" day recently and I took Water and Fire to check it out.  We got there early and the booth run by a pest control company was the only one open but since they had a snake, we headed right over

Sky and Quitting Quitting

November 15, 2017

Sky made it through the soccer season!  I think it really helped that her best friend was on the team

A trip to the toy train museum

November 13, 2017

After the Children's Museum, I think the toy train museum here in Tucson is our favorite place to go.  We went the other weekend and took one of Fire and Water's good friends along for the fun.

A Special Visitor

November 5, 2017

Besides my phone dying, this space has been quiet because we've had a special visitor:
Water's birth mom has come for a visit so we're trying to soak up as much time with her as possible.  I love that Water can still have a relationship with her and that she takes an active role in his life.  We have truly been blessed by adoption!

Happy Halloween!
