Prescott Trip!

What an amazing time we had this weekend in Prescott! I absolutely LOVE everything about Donna's house there. The decorations, furniture, bedding, pictures, paintings, bowls, cabinets, counters, etc. I swear, I completely understand why she loves it there so much! She was so generous letting us stay there, and it was AMAZING to be able to escape the heat!

If this isn't reason enough for me to NEED a suburban, I don't know what is! I have another sponsorship blog coming up, and I plan on allowing any of my adoring readers to buy me a suburban if they so desire, sooooo, just keep this picture in mind!

Friday afternoon, we hit the park in Donna's community. . .so much fun! Especially fun because they had all of these "grown up" jungle gyms, so Pat and I had fun trying those out. Next to Anthem, it is probably the best play set I have ever seen! It is probably better than Anthem, but Anthem still wins because it has walk up ramps to the slides, and I still worry about my little Tyler Gracie climbing tall ladders to get to the top of the slides!

Will I ever get a good picture of them together?

Jackson absolutely LOVED using the binoculars to look for animals. We saw cows, horses and birds! He would wake up every morning just DYING to go look for the animals!

They both thought the over sized rocker belonged to them. At one point they are working together to rock it!

Saturday morning we had a GREAT game of baseball. While Jackson has been able to hit without the tee for awhile now, Miss Thing is all set to play some baseball of her own. HOW AWESOME is this field, in the community where Donna's house is? The kids were so proud of themselves for hitting the ball and running to first!

That night we had some s'mores! DELICIOUS!

AND, our first annual Texas Hold 'Em Tourney that yours truly won! YAY!

Notice anything different about Jackson (AND, do you love the wreath on the front door)???

Sunday morning we went to the Art Festival in Downtown Prescott, we bought some dip mixes, and I was googly eyed over all the pottery bowls that are really expensive, but I love. We had a great lunch at the Prescott Brewing Company , and I got some Amish Caramels from Pralines of Prescott, both of which are located in Bradshaw Court! (Prescott is so laid back that I even used my bright pink backpack, can't remember the last time I used one!)

Does anyone else think this family needs new pajamas? Check out my Christmas pajamas, Jackson has Halloween ones on in a picture, I swear I only buy pajamas for the holidays, except Pat, he seems to have oodles of pajamas that aren't holiday oriented! That's cause he can fit into anything!

Looks like SO much fun! I love your family!!!

Did you LOVE the Prescott Brewing Company?!? That is seriously where we eat every time we are in Prescott! It is actually where I asked to go to Mother's Day Brunch. LOL

LOVED Prescott Brewing Company!!!! I haven't stopped talking about it since we left. When Pat worked in Cottonwood, he did a lot of work in Prescott, so HE recommended it if you can believe it! SOOOOOOOO GOOD! I was eyeing all the food on the way out, and it all looked amazing! I would go walk around downtown Prescott any weekend, it was so nice down there!

Looks like a great weekend! When you escape the heat don't you just want to stay at your escape?? I know that I do!

You NEED a suburban! LOL! Can't wait to read the blog in which you sell your adoring readers on the idea that it has become a necessity!!

And, now my fam needs to take a trip to Prescott so I can try this brewing company's food!

Sounds like a great time! The cooler weather must have been WONDERFUL ... I'm eagerly anticipating temperatures that are below 95 degrees. Great pictures, too!
