Gabe's parents come to visit!

With my cute mother-in-law Janice

In the life of two Arizonians...

I'm back.
In case ya'll were wondering if we survived our first summer on the surface of the sun, I mean Arizona... We did. And we lived to blog about it!
Life has been awesome.
We've had some fun.

Gabe is playing intermural softball. I play a valuable role in softball. Hold the water, cheer on the team and chat with gals. Both teams are doing awesome. Here Gabe's up to bat and my cute friend Megan's husband is on 3d base. You'd think we planned that... for picture purposes.

Meg and I have had a couple days where we have the same days off. What a better way to enjoy time off work than in the beautiful AZ sunshine. We're training for the marathon together so after our long run, we relax in the sun.

We finally made it to a football game! One of my cute Young women is in the band at her highschool. She played at half time on the field and asked Gabe and I to come. Of course it didn't take one second to convince Gabe to go to a highschool football game.
There she is, with the drum!
It makes me happy to be under the friday night lights, sitting next to my all star.

I was also able to make a trip to Mesa to go to the temple with my Young Women. What a blessing to live close to such a beautiful temple.

A couple weeks ago Gabe volunteered us to volunteer at a walk for Diabetes.
This little dude was my favorite, passing out water to all the walkers.

Even the Ghost busters came. It was pretty sweet.

Fall finally made it Arizona. And by fall, I don't mean beautiful red and yellow leaves and the air turning crisp...
I mean rain and hail (the size of Golf balls) FALLING from the sky. I 'm not kidding. I've never seen anything like it. If you look closely you can see our street turning into a river. Don't worry the Corolla was a champ. It only had a few dents in the roof from the hail. I wasn't too upset about it. (ok, I wasn't upset at all, it gives the hoopdy rolla some character!)

The rain gave Meg and I a good opportunity to craft. Something I am so not good at. My cute friend Erica would be so proud of me. She's so good at this stuff.... But not me. It actually turned ok though. I found this cute wreath idea in Women's day Magazine. I would link you to it so you could make it yourself, but I'm not that crafty.
You could google it.
So long sweet Arizona summer. Can't wait for an Arizona winter!!!!!
Just wishing we had a little "real fall" here. Can't explain how much I miss the leaves!
