I can't even begin to describe how happy WE are!!!  We just purchased a home!!!!!!!!  We close June 30 and are already decorating in our minds!

Our new casa is in Alta Mesa, in East Mesa.  We have an AMAZING Realtor with Marceau Realty, Ben Scheier. If you'd like his contact information, let me know!  Not only is he a personal friend, he's super professional and really looks out for what the buyer is really looking for and can afford.  He found us this amazing home!!!  {he also sells homes}

Here are some basic pictures from our little point and shoot from this past weekend and a floor plan I drafted.

We are so excited to have all three munchkins home for the move, too!  What an amazing few months we have ahead of us!!  I couldn't be more blessed!!!

superstition springs golf course

On Saturday, we went golfing at Superstition Springs GC.  I loved it!  It was a super fun (and hard) course.  I had never been before so we decided to take advantage of the high heat and get 1/2 off Green's Fees!  It was TOTALLY worth it AND I lasted all 18 holes!!  (I usually give up because of frustration around the 8th or 9th hole).

Heath hit the ball to here from AT LEAST 100 yards away with a 5 iron!

I had never seen these GPS, Score Keeper monitors before .. sooo fancy!

I LOVE that the Pins were American Flags!!!

Heath fishin' out just ONE of the many balls I lost to the fishies!

family walk at tempe beach park

Beofre Heath's trip to Prescott, we went to Tempe Beach Park and had a family walk, run, bike ride.  After our walk/ run, we went to Mojo's ... our faaaaave!!!!!

fallen officer's memorial

I've been slacking on posting as soon as events happen.  They all came at me so quickly! 

May 2 was the 38th Annual Fallen Peace Officer's Memorial at Wesly Bowlin Plaza, downtown.  We missed last year because of  National Police Week in Washington, DC.  Here are some shots from this year's event.  Such a hard event to attend, but love that we can support other police families and their unimaginable loss!

We even saw Marc Curtis, filming the event, on the news, live.  So cool!

tyler and mattea .... and baby e

This Tyler, Mattea and baby E!  Tyler is one of Heath's cousins.  When Mattea asked me to take their family pictures, I was so flattered and so excited to get to know them better.  Here are some of my faves ...

slide rock in Sedona

I had been to Slide Rock a few times, but have never gotten in.  The weather was super nice so we decided to stop by for a few runs down the river.  It was a blast ... freezing ... but totally worth it! We can't wait to take the munchkins this summer!

verde canyon railroad

Last weekend I went to Prescott to visit Heath.  Sharon and Casey were also up in Prescott, visiting Sharon's folks, so we got together on Saturday and took a ride on the Verde Canyon Railroad.  So much fun!  We always have a blast with The Toon's!

Poor Casey ... I thought this was cool.  Everyone was making fun of me ...
