Schnepf Farms 09

Its been quite an adjustment moving to Arizona and figuring out all the fun things to do here. We had so many fun traditions in Utah and have many fun memories going to different festivals, parks, and places to get yummy treats. So in my search to find those same wonderful things here, I came upon Schnepf farms in Queen Creek, just around the river bend from our house, ha ha, hopefully some of you chickies catch that. It was a great time to be together, away from our house chores, and having a blast being together outdoors, which is what we love most! Enjoy!

Is it just me, or is Josh and Tate making the exact same face??? WEIRD. They must both love taking pictures.

I told Lilly all about the "lily pads" and how she came to be.. just kidding

why, Why, WHY must this child love animals so much?
My two little punkins

Thanks Schnepf family for sharing your very expensive farm with us! ha ha
P.S. If any of you fellow Arizonians know of cute little things like this to do, LET ME KNOW!

Tate's Blessing, October 11, 2009

Tate's blessing day was wonderful. Our home was filled with family and friends to share his special little life with us. Josh did a wonderful job, and the little guy was so handsome. I just love special days that put life into perspective...

Went to the temple to take pics of the little guy in his blessing outfit one evening

My family left to go home to get stuff ready for the luncheon right afterward so unfortunately I didn't get a picture of them.. but we love them and thank them for their support.

It was a beautiful day!
