Adam came to visit us in Arizona last weekend! 

The first night we all just hung out on our patio, enjoying the fabulous Arizona weather.

Saturday morning Brett had to work, so Adam and I headed to the Phoenix Art Museum.  This picture makes it difficult to tell, but it was absolutely pouring and we got completely soaked walking from our car to the building.

Here's proof:

Really wet feet:

On Sunday we went and enjoyed Old Town Scottsdale even though it was raining.

We posed with the giant boot just for fun:

And checked out the mission:

And all the cool art.
It was a great weekend and we always love having our California friends & family come for a visit!!

Pretty Clouds

I am not feeling particularly creative right now, so instead of actually writing a blog post, I will just share this pretty picture with you:

Knott's Berry Farm

In honor of our anniversary Brett & I headed to Buena Park, CA to go to Knott's Berry Farm.  I had not been there in forever, and Brett had never been, so it seemed like a fun way to spend the weekend.
We were really lucky because nobody was there.  Seriously there were maybe 100 people standing around when the gates opened on Sunday.  Definitely a great time of year to go.

We aren't much for crazy extreme thrill rides, but we decided to be brave and rode everything that didn't involve excessive spinning or free-falling.  So we rode this crazy contraption:

And this one:

And this one:

It was really nice that we stayed at the hotel right next to the park so we could take a break mid-day and put our feet up like the old married couple that we are. 

Back at the park, I rode this spinny ride without Brett because he has motion sickness issues, and it was a lot of fun.

We did not ride this ride:

Because those who ride it get very...


very wet.

All in all we had a great time.  Here we are at the end of the day with our happy faces on:

And here we are with Brett's "I'm sick and don't want to ride any more rides face" and my "Sympathy face."

On our drive home we got to see lots of snow in the San Bernadinos: 

And our Garmin Nuvi saved us from what was sure to be hours of traffic delay.

A word of advice:  ALWAYS trust the Nuvi.  She knows what she's talking about.

Oh, and at some point I took this cool picture of palm trees.

I just had to throw that in.  :)
