It was a wonderful, and very emotional, spring in Arizona. As it turned out to be our very last...
~Ryan was busy one Sunday afternoon, so the kids and I snuck away to the rodeo at West World.
~Lily's first field trip to the Desert Botanicals gardens. Loved joining her and her class as a parent sponsor!
~St Patrick's Day with a special treat from Grandma O
~First Confession. Lily wrote a long list of her "sins" to confess, and Father Eric asked if she could maybe just read one or two and save the rest for another time! :) Love that girl so much!
~William was swimming in Scottsdale at the exact same time as Lily was skiing in Flagstaff. Ryan treated Lily to a father/daughter ski day - I'm not sure which one had more fun, but the stories of Lily rocking moguls while Ryan tried to film it (and then crashing himself!) are pretty entertaining.
~An amazing hike up Camelback. The best company, the best views, the perfect spring weather.
~And this girl. Aly and I spent countless hours on our beloved McDowell trails, and it was a gorgeous spring trail season. Missing her (and our talks!) so much!
