Masons first trip to the swimming pool

This was Masons first trip into the good old pool. Mason LOVES the bath tub so I thought he was going to love the pool. Come on it’s like one huge bath tub, what's not to love? Well at first he didn’t like it one bit. He cried and cried and cried (mostly when he saw Nik). I am not really sure why. Maybe because he wasn’t sporting his normal glasses; Mason usually loves Nik. Mason just clung on to me and gave Nik the stink eye for quite a while. He finally warmed up to the swimming pool and Nik. Hopefully our next visit to the pool will be a success!

Fishing in Payson

We headed up to Payson last Saturday to get out of this crazy heat. Levi’s parents just recently bought a house up in the mountains and we thought we would take a break and go check it out.  It will be a nice place to visit when they are done fixing it up. While we were there we rode the ranger around and went fishing. We all had a great time. Avery caught her first fish and was scared to death of it. Uncle Nik caught a crawdad which Avery was pretty scared of too. After fishing Levi, Nik, and Rick took on the project of ripping out all of the kitchen cabinets and countertops to get it ready for the new ones. Sadly I didn’t get a picture of this but it was a pretty big task, which they got done. We had a great time and can’t wait to get out of this 108 degree weather soon!

Phoenix Zoo

Avery and I were so excited when we were invited by some friends to go check out the phoenix zoo. I have lived here for almost six years now and had never made it to the zoo. It is an awesome zoo. We had a great time. This little family we went with has a little girl that is a couple of months older than Avery and they also have a boy who is two or so months older than Mason. So it worked out perfectly, everyone had someone to play with. Avery even got to ride a camel with her friend Ady.  We didn’t take the kids swimsuits because we didn’t know the splash pad would be on but to our surprise it was. At the end of our day we let them get soaked at the splash pad. We all had a good time seeing all the animals and munching on eight dollar popcorn!
