Raspberry Picking!!

Apparently we DO have wild raspberries growing in AZ!!  I was SO excited to find that out.  Also surprised that my mom, queen of the mountains, didn't know about them.  We headed up last Friday in search of the berries.  It was an awesome day of hiking with the boys and Grammie and Papa.  Our first stop brought up zero.  However, after lunch we hit the rim and found a ton of plants.  They were loaded with berries, but majority of them were not ripe.  That's OK.  We had a blast and picked enough.   Too many pics to label, but I think they are pretty self explanatory.  Enjoy!

California, here we come!

We recently were blessed with an awesome trip to California.  All of Cody's family went - Gramps, Farmor, Aunt Jamie, Uncle Travis, (soon - to - be) Aunt Raquel and our family.  First stop, Steve and Karen Eckbergs in Placentia.  We had a wonderful dinner with them Sunday night.  Then on Monday it was off to Disneyland!!!!  The boys had a blast and I had a great time seeing it through their eyes.  On Tuesday, we continued north the Turlock to visit Grandpa Bill, Shirley and our good friends Tim, Jill, Ty and Jamie.  What an awesome visit!  The boys had a blast!!!  The pics are out of order - first our time in Turlock and then Disney.
