It’s a new Louisville squeaky toy!!! Ali absolutely loved it! See her smile!?
Even Mommy got presents!! Can’t get these anywhere out here!
This is Ali pooped after having Grandmamma and Grandpapa throwing her toy across the room and playing fetch with her all evening .
I got to take them hiking on Telegraph Pass, which was the first trail I ever successfully hiked since I started being active again! They made it to the top and kicked some ass!!
I have texted them this picture from the top of Telegraph SO many times, and today, they got to see it in person! Photos just don’t do this justice!
Sportin’ my Team Chances NYC shirt I had made for NYC Marathon!
On our way down the mountain, this little guy decided to climb out of the flowers he was eating and say hi!
I named him Larry the Lizard. Then, at lunch, we determined that he is, in fact, a Gila Monster! So I have renamed him Javier, the Gila Monster . He really posed for us! He was fearless! Little chunky monkey, too! Too many flowers, buddy!! You better start hiking the trail, too, lol!
We went to lunch with Karen, Susan and Kat today at Pita Jungle. As I’m writing this, I just realized we forgot to take a picture!!!! Dang it!!! It was SO much fun to introduce my parents to some of my amazing friends that I have out here in AZ. They aren’t just friends, they are like family . Thanks so much for having lunch with us you guys!!!
Ok, I just realized that I did get a picture of my Curry Chicken Salad:
Leave it to me to get a picture of my meal and not my friends, lol! It was fantastic, as usual. I love Pita Jungle!
Then, we went shopping at Chandler Mall so I could take Mom to Lululemon for the first time ever!! I also took her to Lush for the first time.
After the mall, we went to have FroYo at Yogurtland-because FroYo is awesome. This is not the last time they will have it in AZ, either, lol!
SO good!! Dad had strawberry cheesecake, Mom had Spiced Chai, Crème Brulee and Red Velvet, and I had Red Velvet and Spiced Chai.
Then, we hung out at my place and watched some TV and called it a night.
More hiking in the morning for us! We’re probably conquering about 6.2 miles on South Mountain. I better finish this up so I can get some sleep!!
