February... A Wedding, hiking and a little kite flying!

As many of you know.... I love photos! So I will be showering my post today with a photo journal of this past month. It was busy and full of fun memories....

February started off with Emmett taking a visit to Phoenix Children's Hospital Pediatric ICU. Emmett came down with a RSV virus that hospitalized him due to his weak little lungs for about 3 days. It was nice to see all of our old pals... nurses, doctors, respiratory therapist and child life specialist, however I would prefer to see them at Target or the park instead. We sure love that PICU, Emmett had spent 8 months there in 2011.

Emmett came home from the hospital just in time to welcome our extended family in town for a wedding in the family.

The following week. Ethan and Emmett's Uncle Stu tied the knot and now the boys have a new aunt... aunt Kenzie!
It was so wonderful to be with my entire family for the week. There are seven grandchildren on my side and Ethan is the oldest at five years old. So it was a bit wild and maybe a tad crazy, but we loved every minute of it!

The sweet kiddos... just missing little Clara(7 months old) she was napping in the stroller. Their expression, explain it all!

I am so grateful Kathy captured this moment. Melt!

The weather here in Phoenix has been so incredible! My most favorite time of year is spring. My boys have such wonderful grandparents. Today we went for a hike and played at the park.
Grandma brings lots of yummy snacks for the kids. Note... Emmett trying out licorice for the first time (only licking). He had a red mustache as evidence.

A slight breeze made it perfect to fly a Buzz Lightyear kite. Go Ethan!

Ethan instructing Stella, how to maneuver a kite correctly.

Hike complete... Michael, Emmett, Ethan, Stella and her mommy Crystal, Grandma and Tristan. Love our Arizona desert!
