Parker, AZ

Yes I'm knelt down in the water of the Colorado River. It was freezing. When I got out my legs were bright red and numb.

Oh me Oh my. What to say. Monday my parents picked me up and we were off to go camping in the big city of Parker, AZ. Never heard of it? Let me tell you why. Its on the Colorado River where the shore line is covered in RVs. It is Sun City on wheels. The fastest machine out there was a golf cart which conveniently there is a golf course....called Jackass Flats. Hmm. And funny thing...there were actual golfers out there tearing it up. But what else could they do? Maybe go play water volleyball with their fellow senior citizens or play putt putt golf. Either way I'm sure it would've been the time of their life. On the other hand, me, mom and dad were about bored stiff. I've never been more grateful for FOX news or any channel for that matter.

Our highlights included me wondering why in the HELL there was mice poison in our camper and as I was sitting on the bed my dad goes, "Danica lift your feet up real slow." YEAH RIGHT! I bout came unglued.

Dad going swimming and his shorts filled up with air and he couldn't get his feet to touch the bottom of the pool and he was fighting to keep his head afloat. Mom and I about died laughing.

Mom couldn't quite figure out that she had to walk up the stairs instead of fall of up them. Something about the one foot in front of the other was a little much I guess.

Dad singing in the truck, "There ain't no sunshine hmm mhh hmm hmmm...." After about 20 minutes of this I texted mom and wrote, "there ain't no sunshine...sure glad the radio works." She chuckled and dad knew we were making fun of him. It was classic.

All in all it was a fun trip. I doubt we'll ever go to Parker, AZ or Herp, CA EVER again but it was fun. Next year they'll have their passports ready to go to Rocky Point. Can't ever beat the beach thats for sure.

Oh one more story about mom. We had just finished playing putt putt and all we were wearing was swim suits so just use your imagination where she put her phone. Well then we decided to go sit in the hot tub when she sat down she remembered her phone but it was too late. The damage was done. I texted dad and told him and he said, "oh mercy. Try explaining that one to the insurance." hahahhaha.

Cole is 6 months old

Our little man is growing like a weed. He is so sweet.
Weighs 18.10 lbs
Head 17"
Height 28"
Yes he's a big boy. He wears 9-12 month clothes already. I can't believe it. The doc said he's ready to go from 40 oz of milk to 32 oz and given 3 to 4 meals. I'm excited for it...just not the mess that comes with it. haha. OCD talking I guess.
He reaches for anything he wants and usually can grab it.
Last nite in the tub he was trying to pick up all his toys. He'd catch one and the other would float away. It ended in him being completely frustrated and I've never heard him cry like that. He loves the sound of thinks bags of any kind.
He still doesn't have a definite eye color. I just say they are coal.
Rubs his eyes and ear when he's tired.
Lately he's been waking up at like 5:30 but I let him play in his crib until he decides he's hungry. Why not right?
Sits up so good.
Everyday he learns a little more. It's amazing.

Trip to Sin City (but we're righteous)

Bellagio Water Show
Caesars Palace
The New Veer Towers
Vegas Temple
That's us
Its a beautiful temple for sure
Aquarium at The Mirage
The Strip at night
Paris all lit up
New York, New York
Sadly we never went that fast by the dam. Dam.

Cody and I have been spending a lot of time apart lately due to work and school so we decided to take a little trip to Vegas and my parents would watch Cole. Perfect. Don't want to corrupt him too early ya know? We left here on Sunday and got there like at 5 because there was a two hour wait on the Hoover Dam. Really? My only thought..."da(r)n tourists." Ideal traveling. We stayed at the Excalibur and went to a show called "Tournament of Kings". It was pretty entertaining. We walked the strip several times and bout did ourselves in. One day we went to the temple and enjoyed just being away from the hussle and bustle of all the noise and action on the strip. What a peaceful place to resort to. We drove to Show Low on Wednesday to pick up Cole then came home Thursday morning.

I Have a Problem

Now no one really needs to be alarmed but I truly have a drooling problem! I can't even count the number of times I've drooled on myself. Its like I'm a teething baby but worse!!!! Any solutions out there?

A Quilt I Made

I was up in Show Low and made a quilt for my mother in law. She of course, bought the material and supplies so I just put my little mind to it and got it done. I had a lot of help quilting it and it turned out so cute. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the finished quilt but it was stitched with yarn...not tied...and the stitches were like 1/2 inch long. It was adorable.

Cutest Boy Ever...

...ok maybe a little biased but look at him!
Thank you to my friend Jessica for taking pictures of Cole. I just wish my email wasn't retarded and I could get the other one.

Kissing Cousins

So I haven't posted in FOREVER. I apologize. I'm in Show Low and forgot my camera and cord so maybe one day I'll catch up. For now I only have a picture my sister in law emailed me of Cole and Kate. Kissing Cousins. So adorable.
