My good friend Monica, her husband Nick, and their daughter Addison were in town last night. Nick works in Tucson as a baseball trainer, so he got us some FREE tickets to the Diamond Backs game. Our seats were awesome! They were a little ways up from the visitor's dugout. It was a really fun night, it is always fun to catch up with friends you don't get to see very often.

This morning, we played softball with a few families in our ward at an elementary school by our house. Kennedi even got in and played. She was so cute up to bat, and hit the ball every time (she's not left handed, we just taught her to hit left handed). The funniest thing was watching her run around the bases. Once she got to second base, she just continued on out to left field, it was a total crack up. Everyone was laughing, telling her the right way to go.
Later this afternoon, we all headed over to our friends, the Montgomery's, for a BBQ. They have a pool, so all of the kids got to swim.
Here is Kennedi, acting like the princess she is.....telling on the other kids when they splashed her. She loves hanging out with Kirsten, and seems to think she is 16-years-old too.
It has been such a great experience to live in AZ, and we have made great friends since we've been here that we will truly miss when we leave.

The weather has been so crazy here lately. Two days ago, it was 108 degrees outside and today it is hailing chunks of ice the size of marbles. Kennedi loves to play in the rain, so she was running around in it for a minute, until it started hailing like this....
Wow, I think that is just amazing! I've never seen it do this in the 10 months we've lived here. It makes me so excited to move back to Utah to actually have seasons again.

Today was Kennedi's last day of her first year of pre-school. They did a little program for all the parents, it was so cute. They just sang a bunch of songs that they had learned throughout the session. We have really liked this pre-school, and it was a little sad to me that her first year is over. She is growing up too fast!! I was reading the talk that Elder Ballard gave in General Conference and he said that the early years in our child's life represents less then one tenth of a parent's normal life. That really hit me, we have such a short time to enjoy our little precious ones. I just want to freeze her the way she is and enjoy her and everything she does!!

Yesterday afternoon, Shane didn't have anything going on, so we decided to go to the temple. The Mesa temple is so beautiful, especially this time of year. We've had so much going on in our lives the past few months, and it's always so nice to go to the temple where you can escape from it all and just be at peace for a few hours and think about what's really important. Even though things don't always go the way we want them to, we are so blessed, and so thankful for all that we have.

By the time she finally made it to bed, she had a fever, and had thrown up all over ME! She kept saying, "Sorry mom, it was an accident", it just broke my heart. I hate it so bad when she gets sick, she is just not herself........
