Scottsdale vacation, 1st plane ride

If what you see here is controlled chaos...well, then the picture did a good job depicting the story!  Vivian looks like a ragamuffin, and Oliver was busy entertain all of the passengers around us.  (side note: this is picture was taken in the last 5 minutes of the 1st flight...and my dad is still smiling!)This is our only picture of the fact that yes, in deed we did get on a plane and take a 3 hour and 45 minute flight to Scottsdale, AZ!  My parents "workactioned" with us because it's always nice to have extra hands!  The trip was a success and it was nice to get away to have a break from the everyday routine.  

Vivian and her Daddy, again with french onion dip on her lips.  That little lady loves dip!

The babies enjoying their own personal pool.  

This series of photos shows exactly what it takes to get a semi-acceptable family photo.  Vivian is trying desperately to get into the water behind us and Oliver wants to get down and run.  

Oliver petting the dog sculpture.   

Vivian digging in the dirt.  

Swimming in the hot tub we used as a pool because the actual pool wasn't heated and was quite chilly.  

Family dinner.  

Vivian in the hand-me-down dress I bought for her cousin Josephine the day my sister found out she was pregnant with a little girl.  

The view I see all day long looking down at my feet.  "HOLD ME PLEASE!"  How can I say no to that precious face?!

Family photo attempt #248

Oliver loves to run and be outside, he's one happy boy!

Papaw chasing after Vivian the walker!


Still running!

Pretty little lady.  

Oliver sporting his "In-n-out" hat.  We all got to enjoy Matt's favorite burger spot (twice)!  Yum

It looks like it was a wonderful vacation! The kids, in particular, look like they had a great time in Scottsdale. Sounds like the first plane ride was a success.
