Orion and Summer's Wedding

We had so much fun this weekend at Orion and Summer's Wedding. They are such a beautiful couple and the ceremony was filled with authenticity and love. We are so excited to have united the families and look forward to many more memories in the future.

Back in action...

Well, after weeks of working on this, I finally got our blog back up and running again. We were able to recover all of Geoffrey's posts he wrote, but lost what I had contributed. So sad... :( But at least we were able to recover some of it. Lesson learned... Pay attention to your notices from GoDaddy! Anyways, the baby just turned 7 months - and we are back in action!

Happy New Year!

And We Are Rollin’…

Today Jordan rolled over for the first time.  I am not sure if it was back to front or the other way around…..but either way, life from this day forward will be on the go.

Lake Powell

If you have never been, you need to go.  Go to Lake Powell.  Go see the magnitude of Glen Canyon Dam.  Go see the contrast of the beautiful sandstone cliffs against the sparkling blue water.  Go…



Old Man and The Sea

As I stated in my previous post, we went to Lake Powell last week to relax for a few days.  While we where they we had a lot of fun just hanging.  But I most say that the most memorable part of the trip was a conversation I had with my a local Ole Timer.  He considered himself a fisherman, I thought he was more a storyteller. 

I am just glad he let me snap this pic so I will always remember him.

What A Great Day

Today was my day…..my birthday.  And my wife let me do as I pleased.  SO at 6:00 AM I got up and hiked 7 miles in the South Mountains and then had lunch at Los Dos Molinos.  What a great day!

The Simpler Things In Life

This past weekend we decided to escape the heat and take Jordan on his first road trip.  A cruise up the 87 was in store.  We decided to hit Payson…just about an hour and a half north of the valley and a few thousand feet higher in elevation.  It was beautiful up there.  Tall pines. Fresh air.  Beautiful.  While it was 110 + here, it was only in the low 90s there during the day; 70 at night…..what a treat (for us).  We went to the rodeo (pic below).  We spent the night “socializing” with some great people.   But more importantly we really thought about the simpler things in life and where we wanted to be raising Jordan and his future siblings.  We both come from much smaller areas than this valley and sometimes we really miss the slower pace.    The fresh air.  The land.  All the great things we both remember being able to do as a kid.


I will leave it at this.  Only time will tell if we are Phoenix for life or if we are headed to greener pastures and the simpler things in life….

Power of the Smile

It doesn’t matter what it going on in the world.  It doesn’t matter what has got you down.  I know what can cure you.  The smile of a baby.  When this little guy beams from ear to ear all my cares melt away.  So, if you are having a bad day….take a look at this.  It will cure what ails ya.  You can thank me later.
