Last month, James, Gemma and I went to ARIZONA to visit Uncle Joe and Auntie Steph!!
My brother Joe married Stephanie last year in Durango CO (that such a fun trip!) and moved to Arizona. They have just bought their first house and James, Gemma, and I were so happy to go visit.
Links to blog posts about the wedding: Durango Day 1, Durango Day 2 (train museum), Durango Day 2 (rehearsal), Durango Day 3 (wedding prep), Durango Day 3 (photos), Durango Day 3 (wedding), Durango Day 3 (reception), Durango Day 4 (leaving CO), and there's more...just keep clicking "newer post" at the bottom!
(We are starting to split up trips because it's just not practical to travel with 8 people all the time. :o) I knew I could take 2 kids and we would still all fit in Steph's car. I'll probably take a trip with Bunny and/or Mariposa soon, or I'll send them somewhere, just the two of them.)
