Afternoon Hike

Brian suggested we take advantage of this weather before it gets too hot so he took some time off this afternoon and we went to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior. It's about a 40 minute drive from our house and has some beautiful easy trails that we were able to take Payton on.

After the hike we decided to drive the additional 3 miles to downtown Superior to see what it was like. Definitely a po-dunk town with a Dairy Queen that we almost got stuck at when the car wouldn't start:) Oh the joys of car problems.

In the last month or so Payton has gotten pretty fast. She seems to get into just about everything. So in attempt to contain her for just a second or at least slow her down so i could throw a load of laundry in the washer I put her in the laundry basket:) Who would have known this would turn into so much fun! :)

1st Mother's Day

This mother's Day was super low key which I loved. Brian got me flowers & Payton a new dress that he picked out all by himself...(super cute huh?) We went to brunch with his family at Joe's and then to church and relaxed the rest of the day. Minus the one completely nasty diaper explosion we had in the car it was a great day and I feel super blessed to be this beauty's momma!

No Fear of Water!

Yesterday we spent the afternoon up in Scottsdale with Brian's family. We took Payton down to the pool. I wasn't sure how she'd do but as you can see from the picture above...she loved it:) She just started kicking and moving around (I think she thought she was in her walker):)
