Scenes from an AZ Weekend

5.09.2011

Enjoying the Springy Weather while it lasts because as Arizona natives, we know the 100s are just around the corner...:(
Date Night with Andrew, Reachel, Leisel & Stel
Swan Thai Yellow Curry, no onions, add carrots=Best Thai Food. 
Flor de Michoacan=My New Best Friend
My friend DD invited us to participate in the Arthritis Walk around the Phoenix Zoo early Saturday morning. 
I've done this before, and it's such a good time. 
You get free admission to the Zoo, free breakfast, tons a freebies from sponsors, and the best part is, you get to be there just as all the animals are waking up.
Which means when you get to the lion and tiger exhibit, they aren't just laying around on a rock...
They were on the prowl!!
Sometimes the dessert amazes me with it's beauty.
I want one of those little foxes so bad!
and a giraffe, and a peacock, and...well, let's just say, I should have been a zoo keeper.
It was also super sweet to see Marcus interact with my precious niece (who might as well be my baby sister).
He's going to be a good daddy someday.
After church on Sunday, we did some stationary watercoloring to give to Ma Nielson for Mother's Day.
Dinner at the Nielson's always involves flowers :)
I hope you had a beautiful weekend!

I think Arizona is beautiful. I miss the palm trees and want to visit my husband's family very soon.

I love foxes, too! I don't think it's legal to own one, so I got a dog (her name is Sydney) that is red and has big ears like a fox. Ahhh, the little things make me so happy. :)
