Last Wednesday I went on a sort of mini Blog Vacation. I answered important emails, but a friend of mine came up from the valley to spend four days with us to get out of the heat of Phoenix. She loves my little babies as if they were her own and it was fun to have some time away from the bump and grind and enjoy the city I live in!
So its time to share on our adventures. Here’s a little recap!
Around noon last Wednesday, Jessie got here and we did a little dollar store shopping before I took her to one of the cities best events. “Concerts in The Park”. It was lovely. The Mayor was there and gave a little speech about the Yarnell Firefighters that gave their lives a couple fateful Sundays ago. Living in Northern Arizona, we are always concerned about forest fires because its one big ponderosa forest up here, unlike the desert of Phoenix. So to hear that Arizona lost the best of the best that day, is so sad and my heart truly aches for their families. One man left behind a family of five and the oldest child was six years old. I just can’t imagine the pain that mom is going thru right now.

Everyone brings a blanket or camping chairs and a picnic basket full of food. We love to pack watermelon and tons of fruit. Then a local band plays for a couple of hours and its a fun-filled relaxing night.
This was the day before the fourth of July, and I had to be up early the next day to march in the parade.
On the Fourth of July we woke up and I got the kids ready to walk in the parade for the mom group I’m a member of. I thought I had remembered where I parked, but I didn’t…
Anyway, we get there and we are the 91st entry in the parade of 100 entries. I literally didn’t need to be there til 10am. Staging started at 8…and I’m glad I didn’t get there til about 8:50. Even though the parade started at 9, we didn’t start moving from our section til 10ish. Having two kids sit around in a stroller that wasn’t moving for over an hour, wasn’t my idea of a good time, they were getting pretty fussy.
I’m very glad I was able to bring a clamp on umbrella for the stroller. Jessie walked with us and pushed the stroller most of the time while I handed out candy to the kids.
