New Year's Weekend

Oh, Arizona!  After a bit of a rough morning we decided to spend Saturday afternoon at the park in my parents' neighborhood to cheer up a bit. It was a beautiful day- 77 degrees and sunny. What a New Years' Eve, right? It was a lot of fun watching Abe and Hank throw the football around (the photo of them makes me laugh) and Henry enjoyed playing in the grass since most of it up north at our house is dead due to the freezing winter conditions. I love that you can drive a short two hours one way and be in snow, and turn right around the other way and head towards heat. Pretty cool.

We spent the rest of our New Year's laying low, eating and laughing. It was the perfect way to ring in 2012! We're currently dealing with some family stuff- my Grandma isn't doing too well- so being together was great. Plus, Henry brings a smile to everyone's face. I was so tempted to wake him up at midnight for a little smooch but my responsible side won out.

Whatever you did, I hope you had the happiest of New Year's Eves! Here's to a great 2012.

  3. I love park trips with my little girl (she's a few months older than Henry)! They're always so much fun! Today we just went to brunch with my mom and did a little shopping. It's been pretty warm here the past few days for winter though that's for sure! Henry is so cute as always!! :)

    Love, Jazmyn

  4. Thanks ladies! :)

    @shewearscrazywell It makes my nerdy heart swell too! Hank is obsessed with SW and I feel like 1/3 of Henry's wardrobe is related. Nerdy love!

    @Jazmyn Aren't park trips the best? Too bad we can't get together for a little play date! <3

  14. I'm completely jealous of your weather! All day today has been negative 42. The joys of an Alaskan winter.
    I love the pictures! There is nothing better than park trips with the family. It's the simple things that usually end up being the best.

  23. Sorry to hear about your grandmother. : /

    Also, I think you have the right idea with the laying low thing for NYE. We threw a party and, while fun, I couldn't help but think how nice it would have been to throw that cash at a few lobster tails and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot for the Mister and me instead.

    Happy 2012!
