Steve and I were parents of a 4 year old girl for about 2 seconds a week ago. Though brief, I think we learned a lot about parenthood in that time.
We were in the dairy section in wal-mart, strolling along, chatting about how mad I was that wal-mart had the audacity to run out of 2% milk.
In the midst of my rant about wal-mart,suddenly there was a little girl, holding on to our cart with one hand, like she belonged to us.
She must have wandered away from her mom, by basically walking backwards and just assumed that any cart near her was her mom's. Rookie mistake.
We didn't want to startle the poor thing when she realized we were in fact not her mother - so I cleverly said to her "We're not your mom! hahaha!"
Then she ran away.
Thank you little girl for teaching us not to let our unborn children latch on to other people's grocery carts.

Only a Year?

September 5th was our yearmark...feels like more. Was there really life before marriage? Seems like a vague, distant memory. At any rate, its been a fun year and I feel like a lucky woman to be the wife of my husband.
In celebration of our year of a happy marriage, we went to Sedona to relax. Or so we thought. We high centered Steve's Civic after about twenty minutes of being in Oak Creek Canyon. Stupid concrete that has a foot drop off! They have horrible roads in Oak Creek Canyon - lucky for us, we stumbled upon a nice mexican family who had a jack and put some nice big rocks under our front tires and pushed our car out of the mess we made. Crisis kind of avoided, I mean we still had a crisis, just not for very long. We high-tailed it to our hotel shortly thereafter and snuck into the Hilton's pool, like we are so good at.
Here are some pics that no one cares about but us.
