My babies and the zoo!

This last weekend we took a mini winter vacation. Actually for us it was a big vacation because we were gone for 3 nights! Anyway, we went to Phoenix. We left Friday afternoon and went to Robert's grandparents house in Scottsdale and spent the evening visiting with them. It was the first time for them to see Genevieve and Edmund is always a ham so it was fun. Robert went to the Rage fest all day Saturday and saw some of his favorite Christian rock bands perform. I hung out with some great friends, Amanda and Ian and Ronda. Then Edmund, Genevieve and I went to dinner with Robert's sister Stephanie and her husband Chip-which is who we were staying with all weekend. Sunday we had the opportunity to see another great friend of ours, Brad, who was our college pastor when we lived in Glendale. He happened to be in town from Germany the same weekend as us! We were so excited to see him and some other friends that we hadn't seen in a long time :-) Another crazy and great thing that happened on Sunday was of course watching the Cardinals make their way to the Super Bowl! Is it real??? And then on Monday we purchased a wii for our family in anticipation of our tax return! WOOHOO! SO MUCH FUN :-) And we went to the zoo. Edmund was so cute looking at the animals. We have been wanting to take him for a while and he was so excited to go! Boy, in writing it seems like we never stopped! But it was a great weekend, and much needed for me. I hadn't left the mountain since September!
