Fall 2022

 Fall is officially here, which means low 90/high 80 temps which is pretty nice in AZ. We've got a little catching up to do, so let's get to it!

We went to the Phoenix Zoo back in January and met Uncle Eddie there. We had a great time, Mom even rode a camel with Dylan!  (she won't be doing that again BTW, look at the picture). We've had a lot of fun doing Home Depot kids projects each month, the girls are getting pretty handy with a hammer. We went to Wildcatz adventure playground for Dylan's 4th Bday with family and friends. They always have fun there, and it's a really safe and well run place.  We spent a little time with our neighbor friends Zaara and Arriz who let us have their roller coaster which gave them hours of fun. We even ran into them at the Tucson zoo which was a fun surprise :)

Grandpa and Grandma Ladd came for a visit in late March. I had a little run in with the law while they were here, apparently you're not allowed to fly your drone in a state park. Oops. The park ranger let me off with a warning since we were honest with him. Honesty is always the best policy!

In May we took our second trip to Puerto Penasco, Mexico AKA Rocky Point. Mom's great aunt Judy was kind enough to let us stay at her beautiful condo on the 9th floor. It was pretty cool, and of course the girls loved all the stairs. We built a cool new clubhouse together when we got home, what a great spring vacation.

Dylan's dance class had their spring Recital in June. We were so proud of Dylan, she and her class went on stage and performed in front of hundreds of people! You can watch for yourself right here. They all did a great job, that earned us all some ice cream after the show :)  The girls also had their first dentist visit, they did great. The rest of the summer was spent with a lot of playing in our blow up pools and slides. Spending a couple bucks on ice cream and using the air condition playground at McD's is a cheap way to beat the heat too. 🍦🌞

Our biggest milestone since the last update is Dylan started preschool! She goes a half day Mon-Thurs at Sunshine School and will start kindergarten next year. She really loves it and even learned to write her name!  Payton had her 3rd birthday the next week and we had a really nice party, with a great rain to cap it off. Nerd alert: if you ever want to know exactly what the weather is like here at Ladd headquarters, check out my weather station.  Payton has also fully started potty training, we've had a few half hearted attempts, but we're going full steam ahead now. I dream of a diaper free future.

So that's what's been going on. If you don't believe me, then just look at these pictures 📷
