Baby Boys and Big Boys

We are so lucky to be surrounded with a new baby boy, a soon-to-be baby boy, and six year old twin boys who light up our life!

My week ended with a fabulous baby shower, honoring our sweet friend, Kelly Tesi.  Hosted by her cousin, Jen Crawford, we sailed the high seas with the theme ~ "Ahoy, It's A Boy."  A lovely turnout of well-wishers, friends and family, a delightful spread of light Springtime delectables, and perfect Arizona weather.  Here's a collage of the event, with Kelly and the adorable big sis-to-be, Gianna, at the center of it all the fun.  Not a detail was missed!


Following the baby shower, we headed home to welcome our "Phoenix Family."  The twins are now 6+ and we thought a dinner at Pinnacle Peak in Old Trail Dust Town was just what these little wranglers would enjoy.

They were all decked out, including ties....Neckties are important when you dine at Pinnacle Peak because they are OUTLAWED!!  Which means that they're cut off upon arrival!!

Those kiddos are such good sports! (Note:  ties stapled to the wall in background)

And now the twins have left their mark on Tucson and are a part of Pinnacle Peak history!

They are both looking forward to a return visit when they can bring their unsuspecting Dad, Uncle, and Grandpa!

A visit to Old Trail Dust Town wouldn't be complete without a ride on the ponies, so after dinner we headed over to the corral for just that...



Today we caught up with Chiara, Chris, and baby Hutson who just celebrated his 1 month birthday.  We had lunch and a fabulous visit, before our sweet company headed back north.



So, this will probably explain the delay with my Monday blog post, but I wanted to share all this fun with you....

This is an important week for me and I pray that you will enjoy all the blessings of your holiday, be it Easter or Passover.  Thank you so much for sharing your precious time with me!
