Our trip to Arizona was a success! Because of only one minor hiccup in Vegas, we managed to complete the 12 hour drive in one day. We were very very tired but very very happy that we actually got there sooner than anticipated. We really enjoyed spending time with everyone down there. It was great to see Curtis and Lindsay and the girls and Piper and Dixie! They are so fun to just sit and talk with so that was nice. It was also good to see Chris and Brit all settled into their new house and routine. We miss all of them so much! So needless to say we are really excited for any opportunity to present itself wherein we can go back. The weather was rainy and overcast just as we expected, but we went on some awesome hikes with the family our last day there, we got some shopping in and even a date night complete with the most amazing gelato I have ever had! Casey also got to play with Zac and Caleb on their rec league basketball team so that was an experience! We miss every stinking one of them. It was so hard to leave!
Upon our return we prepped Nora for her adventurous week ahead. She has been doing really well with puppy school, though we need to be doing better at practicing with her. She is becoming more confident and is just so happy and smiley! Her surgery went well...she threw up quite a bit once we got her home. She was really out of it too which was funny but the poor thing could hardly sit or lay down because of her sore muscles so she just stood places...very odd. Her newest development is her love of Trix cereal. It probably isn't good for her but her human food preferences are limited so we're ok with it.
As for everything else, we are just trucking along. Our last week was pretty crazy to say the least. We have had some wonderful opportunities present themselves to our little family and now we just need to be making smart decisions concerning them. Here's to hoping for happiness and peace of mind! We also put together this nice (dumpy Walmart) bookshelf/dvdshelf this weekend. It only took all of three or maybe even four tries to get it right. The finishing touch? A nice hammer swing hole to the back panel. Lovely!
