3...3....3 trips in one!

To save time, I added three different trips in this post...


Since all of my boys were with my parent's, at my sister's place
 I took my hotel buddies...Emmy,Lunden and Carly (Lunden's BFF)
to San Diego for a few hours. Yes, you heard right...
a few hours!
{Sea Port Village}

{Coronado bridge}

{GORGEOUS, 71 degree day}

{Lunden & Carly}

{This was Em's first trip to Coronado. Now, they have all been}

{The girl's wanted me to photograph this surfer lol}
{I eventually had to show up in a photo,right? lol}

{it was nice but a chilly ocean breeze. Emmy was shivering}

Ok, seriously, it was flippin' HOT!
I don't know how anyone lives here.
I LOVE a dry heat but I literally was ill from the heat at times.
So, we came to Arizona for my Mom's graduation.
It took place at the new Cardinal's stadium.
She recieved her Master's in nursing. So proud!
My Aunt lives in Avondale so we spent time with her...
I hadn't seen her in 4 years.
I had another Aunt, Cousin and Uncle come in to town
that I hadn't seen in many years as well.
 It was a nice reunion.....

{My parent's..the Gradu-ate lol }

Ok, so those of you that dont know me....
 I went through a horrid divorce.
It has been 11 years. 
The worst time of year for us is when my twins have to go to Idaho
 for an extended period of time. This year it is 4 weeks.
I had to leave them in Arizona with my Aunt Pattie
because Ben and I and our little ones had to road trip back home.
I hated leaving..tears were shed...mostly me and Lunden.
Here are a few pictures of their trip so far...

Perfect on a hot day

Yesterday afternoon was spent at Saluda Shoals splash park.
I had no idea that this splash park existed until my friend from church told me about it.
So glad she did!

The kids had a blast and I have a bunch of pictures to prove it!

Even more photos

Ok, this is the last of the pictures I can share...
the rest are on Lunden's camera and she is in Idaho.
I will be sending her a device to upload pictures.
Hopefully, I will have more to share in a week or so.

These pictures are precious.
 Many firsts for my two youngest and I am sure Carsen didn't remember some of the rides either.
We really miss living in California and having our Disney Passes. We were spoiled BUT....
never took those passes for granted.
 It was a special thing for us to have and make memories with.

Enjoy the photos....

{Alice in Wonderland ride...I still think someone was high on something when they created this movie!}

{Logan and Hunter..Alice in Wonderland ride}

*SIDE NOTE* Logans tooth was bothering him while waiting for this ride.
 He bit into a HARD Mickey ears ice cream and started crying.
 Later that night Gma pulled his tooth out and he got $5 from the toothfairy.
