Addi and I had the opportunity to spend an entire week out in Arizona visiting family.  This was Addi's first plane ride, so I was crossing my fingers that it would go well, especially since I was by myself.  She did great! We had no stops and it was about 3 hours, so it was perfect.  This is our 4th time traveling on an airplane since we have had kids.  I am always laughing in my head as I walk down the aisle to my seat because I know every person is praying in their head that I'm not sitting next to them. haha.

We had such a great time spending time with my family.  Best of all, I finally got to meet my niece, Lola, who was turning 1 already while I was there! We spent the week just relaxing, enjoying the sun, swimming, and doing whatever we want whenever we want!

Sara and I made Lola's birthday cakes.
Happy 1st Birthday Lola!

She loves to clap :)

Lola loved her present from her Aunts and Uncles

3 hour time changes equals up at about 5am everyday.  Thankfully it's light out and we did small hikes and walks around the lake each morning!

More pool time :)

Addi discovered her love for the pool in AZ

We are hoping to ALL make it out to Arizona for Spring break this year!
