He's an Arizona star.

It was rodeo time again here in Arizona. The week of parades, cook-outs, and 2 days off from school!

Michael's kindergarten class performed for their families. They were all so cute. There are so many boys in both classes...that most boys had to dance together! Not too sure the boys enjoyed that, but it was still sweet to see.

In case you don't know the you go.
I'm an Arizona, Arizona, Arizona star
And I come from the west
Where the cowboys are
I could ride 'em I could rope 'em
I could show em how it's done
I'm a rootin tootin cowboy
With my six shooter guns
Prum-prum-prum-prum, BANG, BANG!

Mount Lemmon 2010.

Sunday, we had big plans.
We got out our scarves.
I found my rain boots....don't you love em?
And we hit the open road. Beautiful, right?
About 20 minutes later, we saw our first signs of snow.
And we were lucky enough to find a perfect spot...
Borrowed snowsuits(thanks Janice) were put on, and sleds were brought out. The fun began!
Tyler enjoyed himself too! I think those Target $1 bin red gloves made him feel like a Power Ranger;)
No one complained about walking up the slippery slope....especially this guy. He loved it all.
Not alot of actions shots due to ...too much action going on. One of us had to be at the bottom because they came down pretty fast.
And one of us had to be at the top to hold the sled while they got on. They had so much fun.
There were several wipe-outs, which is all part of the fun, no?
Lindsey had the most...cause that girl came down f.a.s.t! She was airborne at one point(scared me to death).
After about 30 minutes, my Arizona babies had had it. Hey, I was impressed they lasted as long as they did! Rain boots or sneakers don't really keep your feet warm & dry for long....but luckily, we had extra mittens that kept her little feet warm.
While everyone was warming up, we enjoyed the view on the way back down.
Breathtaking isn't it?

Guess we timed it just right....people were waiting at the BASE of the mountain for up to 3 hours to go up..crazy. When we went up, there was no wait at all.

We had so much fun on our spontaneous family outing. Have you had any spur of the moment family fun lately?

***After reading this i know any other words, beside fun? Geez.
