Hello blogging world! Oh how I've missed you!

Anson and I left Florida on May 5th for 2 1/2 solid weeks on F-U-N!  First stop: Arizona to see Papa, Grandma, Uncle Scott, Auntie Nat and Cousins Bailey, Claire and Hazel!  It was 11 days full of fun, minus the yucky 48 hour stomach flu that Anson caught and gave to almost the entire family! SAD!

When we arrived in AZ, we went to a delicious dinner with Grandma at Gecko Grill,  then it was off to see the cousins!  Anson was greeted with excitement and his very own Birthday Crown compliments of Auntie Nat!  As you can see, all the girls have one too.  Way too cute!

Anson loved Papa and Grandma's house and all the space he had to play!  His Cousins were sweet enough to let him borrow their toys while we visited.

 Anson loved Grandma's wagon, so there were lots of rides around the neighborhood. 

We took a trip to Phoenix Zoo to hang our with Bobbie, Megan, Makoy and Finn! 

Anson discovered his love for dirt and rocks while helping Papa repair the sprinkler.

Anson even got in touch with his feminine side and borrowed Hazel's pink shoes while we roasted marshmallows [whistles].

I don't know what could be more fun than playing in the irrigation water in the backyard on a sunny day in undies!

Anson ADORES his Papa and his Grandma too of course, but Papa had to go out of town for a couple days while we were there and Papa had Anson help pack his bag before he left.  After Papa was gone, Anson proceeded to go into his room looking for him and calling for him. It was the sweetest thing!

It was a FANTASTIC 11 days.  We got to swim and I got to go on a lunch date with my dear friend Erin.  I also got to spend a whole day with my friend Sal and an evening with her and her hubby!  Grandma, Anson and I lived it up when Papa was out of town, going to "Taco Tuesday" at Cafe Rio and out for our fave chicken strip dinner at Texas Roadhouse.  Anson was spoiled with a Birthday celebration put on by his Cousins and we got to have a few yummy dinners at their house as well.  I'm grateful to Taylor's Mom who let me get out and about by myself here and there.  Also, Nat and I went to a Pie cooking class and I totally won a $70 pie plate which I gave to Nat, because she's awesome (and I don't need 3).

Thanks for a great week!  Love you all!
