Camelback Mountain


Since we're usually cooped up in offices all week long, we thought it would be nice to get outside this weekend. So this morning we went and hiked Camelback Mountain. For the record, that mountain looks tiny, but don't be deceived, it's a lot bigger than it looks. When hiking the mountain, there are 4 different trails you can choose. We chose one of the "expert" trails thinking that it would be a piece of cake. The hike was only about 1.2 miles each way, but it was straight uphill. It was basically like walking up huge stairs for 1.2 miles. I haven't had a workout that tough in a long time. I'm pretty sure my calf muscles tripled in size. Although we pretty much hated our lives the entire time, we're glad we did it. Next time we just won't go in the middle of the day in May.

Just Another Night In Mesa

Last night we were entertained by our crazy neighbor next door who was arguing with her son. Since her front door is about 5 feet from our own, we always get to enjoy their family drama. Last night they spent several hours going up and down the stairs yelling and slamming doors. But just when we thought the drama was over, it got a little more interesting.

Soon after we woke up this morning, we got a knock on our door. When we answered it, we were greeted by several officers from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. Apparently, our neighbor was heard to be harboring a guy who has a warrant out for his arrest (The sad thing is that this wasn't the first time the cops have come to our door at this apartment). After asking us a couple questions, the officers went across the hall and proceeded to knock on the neighbors door. After our neighbor wouldn't answer, they and several more cops surrounded the apartment and threatened to break down the door. After a while, she finally came to the door and they searched her apartment. We don't think they found the guy, but it was pretty crazy watching the drama through our peep hole. Who needs to go to the movies when we've got free entertainment right here at home?! I think it's probably time to get out of Mesa!

Wii Night

One thing that we've noticed about living back in Arizona, is that it seems like everything is EXPENSIVE! After going on several expensive dates, we decided to do an old fashioned group date night with some of our friends. On Saturday night, we went to the store and bought ingredients and toppings for homemade pizzas. We came back to our apartment and each couple made their own pizza and we played Nintendo Wii. We rented a new Wii game which we totally love and had some amazing homemade ice cream. Altogether, the night turned out great. I guess it just goes to show that you really don't have to spend a lot to have a fun time!



After accidentally hitting his date during a game of tennis, Rob was banished to his own corner for the remainder of the game.

For the record, I'm actually pretty good at Wii Tennis. I blame it on the fact that I had to play with Rob's Mii character instead of my own.

D-Backs Game

On Friday night we went to the Diamondbacks game with Mark and Rob. (Yup, that's right, just me and 3 boys.) I'm sure the boys were disappointed that I was there when I turned down an offer from a scalper for better seats, but I just have this weird thing where I'd rather spend $25 bucks on dinner than seats closer to the field. In the end, the Diamondbacks won and it was great getting to watch the game in the perfect AZ weather!

Happy Mother's Day!

video

Using our newly acquired skills, Ryan and I decided that this Mother's Day would be a great opportunity to put our cake decorating skills to use and make a Mother's Day cake.



We also made some special Mother's Day videos for our moms!

We just want to let both of our moms know how much we love and appreciate them! We're so thankful for EVERYTHING they do for us! We couldn't ask for greater moms!

Little Stud

This last week was a total blast getting to hang out with my sister Adrienne and nephew Brooklen! All I can say about the little guy is that he is...SPOILED!!! One of the highlights of the week was getting to go to Last Chance. For those of you who don't know, we are HUGE Last Chance fans. But if you've ever been there, you'll know that the people there can be a little rude. After going on Tuesday morning, Adrienne decided that the line for the dressing rooms just wasn't moving quick enough. Being the problem solver she is, we went back on Thursday and she wore leggings. Since the leggings were so tight, she was able to try things on right over her clothes without every having to go into the dressing room. I'm super mad that I didn't take a picture, but just picture her little stick legs in leggings and one of Hunter's t-shirts! She looked totally hot!

Somehow, I don't seem to have any pictures of Adrienne from this last week. But here are some pics of her little stud!

(Already a money grubber at a young age)

On Monday we went to Cheesecake Factory for lunch. When the waitress brought us bread, she also brought a separate plate of bread and bananas for Brooklen. You can imagine how much he loved that!


I'm pretty sure that Brooklen had someone playing with him almost every second of every day. Whether he was looking at the horses with my dad or chillin' outside with my mom, he always had someone entertaining him!


Brooklen absolutely LOVED Ryan. He went to Ryan before he went to anyone else in my family. They became best buds. I'm pretty sure Ryan was ready to trade me in for Brooklen!



All in all, we had a blast getting to hang out with Adrienne and Brooklen! We're so sad they're gone but we're already counting down to the next time we get to see them!
