I didn't have as much time as I would've liked in Mesa. Just the day after I flew in & the day before I flew out, but we did have a lot of fun. We stayed with my grandfather & Alba  (below are some photos from that stay).  It was fun having my boys get to meet them & of coarse, getting to visit.     
I've spent lots of time in this backyard- eating citrus, playing make-believe under the trees with my cousins, or wading in the irrigation.
The boys loved the chickens and were very entertained feeding them bits of grass and bark. Poor chickens.
The boys also loved their cat Lacy, which I hope is put out of her misery soon. She's been around since I was probably 13. In addition to her matted fur and scrawny figure, she also is blind in one eye. But kids don't care about that kind of stuff. They were just excited to see a kitty cat.
We also got to spend some time with my cousin Brooke. She came with me to do a little shopping (we are shopping soul mates!) & we got to go swimming with them. The boys LOVED it & Liam has sighted "swimming with Brooke" as one of his favorite things he did in Arizona.  Didn't have my camera, but I did take some cell phone footage to send to Chad. 
I must say, I really miss Arizona.

  1. I love seeing the pics of Gfather & Alba with the kids!! Could you email me copies of them? Your boys are adorable. We have been trying to get Alba to let us have Lacey put to sleep but she wants to hang onto her. I feel so bad every time I see her!!
