So our weekend began with a little fun with the storm we had brewing in our valley Friday night. Jeff and I asked grandma to watch to baby while we went storm chasing for some good pics. Well after some climbing and getting a little wet , we were able to snap some good ones. Since this storm we haven't seen any more rain...oh well nice while it lasted.
Sunday morning JAT art had a photoshoot in Tempe , so we dropped of Jeff at the Park to take the engagement pictures of one of my dearest friends sister and her husband to be. They brought their dog Dozer too. What a fun couple they were. Joe Blech also accompanied Jeff in the shoot, he is also an amazing photographer and friend of ours. While they were shooting, Kiera , Kate , Alstair and I walked Mill Ave and discovered that there's a NEW Dunkin Donuts there , they even have a make your own coffee station...how cool is that ?! After picking up the guys we went to their favorite breakfast place called "Crackers & Co." one word "delicous" ! I had the blintzes and Jeff had the California Egg's Benedict.
Monday morning we decided to use our culture passes to go to the "phoenix zoo". I had never been there before and Jeff hasn't been in many years. We had lots of fun, but it was oh so hot. Zoo opened at 7am and closes at 2pm during the summer, so we got there around 7:30am...whew it was about 97 plus the whole time we were there, but the little kiddie water exibit was refreshing and Alistair had a great time, as you can see in the pictures ! This weekend also marks the moment Alistair learned how to take off his own diaper while "taking a Nap" in his crib. When we found him , it was removed and toss to the side....oh jeez :) Alistair also learned to get from the on the tummy to a sitting up postion on the floor....I was amazed at his strength, such a big boy
