We're back!

Grant, Jake, and I went on a little vacation. Just the 3 of us. We have taken trips, but never just the 3 of us. It was fabulous. In fact, there was lots of pool time and laying around. I didn't take a lot of pictures. I know... shocking. I captured the best moments though.

We finally used our time share! We were getting ready to lose one of our weeks so we planned a quick trip not too far from home. We went to Scottsdale, Arizona. Let me tell you... IT WAS HOT! I mean, HOT! It was an average of 105 the entire time. I'm used to 75 degrees all year long, so this was kind of a shock to my system. I drank LOTS of water and stayed in the shade. Jake, and Grant were not bothered by the heat at all. Of course! ;)

I was able to get a massage, pedicure, and just a little spa afternoon while the boys relaxed at the resort. Grant got in a game of golf as well. 

Jake was a little fish in the water. He has no fear. He was lunging forward head first into the water, kicking, and moving his little arms. He just loved it! I had a hard time holding on to him because he's so strong and he wanted to do his own thing. I love that his little personality is really starting to shine. He's such a happy boy... but, he is very independent. He loves to do things on his own. And swimming was NO exception. The video below is Jake in his raft bouncing along in the little "lazy river". Grant was right next to him. It was adorable!

I must warn you... My annoying voice in the video. I just get so darn excited! Anyhoo, here it is!

Here are a few pictures from our trip.

I love this picture of a father and his son. :)
Chillin in our cabana!
This weekend is Jake's first birthday party! I can't believe my little man is almost 1! Check back for more birthday prep posts!
