Our Spring Happenings

Matt's 1o week art show just finished and I'm so glad! He's done working 7 days a week and it's so great to spend some time together.

President's Day Weekend at Disney Land with Souths and Grandma and Grandpa Barnes. We had so much fun in California. We left Scottsdale Thursday evening, spent Friday at Disney Land, and headed back home at 4am Saturday morning (Matt had to be back at work). It was sort of a whirlwind of family and fun but we had a great time. Emily and Nate were renting this condo right by the beach and it was beautiful! Stratton had so much fun, he keeps asking to go back. I got him a little jar with a slit in the lid so he can save money for our next trip there-which Matt says is not for 10 years...I think Stratton enjoyed it more than Matt :)

At the Hyatt here in Scottsdale, they do these gondola rides at night on this little pond. We went with Greg and Debbie and some fam friends from California. Our gondolier (I'm not sure if that's right) had an amazing voice and serenaded us with some beautiful Italian opera songs.

Lots of pro baseball teams do their spring training here. We watched the SF Giants and Chicago Cubs play on Tuesday. It was fun to be out and enjoy the sunshine-at least for the first 2 hours. It was 88 degrees that day and we only lasted until the 7th inning and headed home for the pool. I don't handle the heat well normally, not to mention when I'm 8 months pregnant. Stratton didn't really care about the game but he loved sharing Grandpa's peanuts and lemonade.

I just think he's so cute here...
