We went to the Tucson Zoo and had a great time. Austin wanted a little more excitement though and so we let him ride an elephant!
Melissa has been loving the opportunity to play soccer. She is known as one of the fastest players on the team and she does a great job and is fun to watch.
Austin seems very mature for his age so I figured it was time to teach him how to drive. He is learning very quickly (he only scares me when he takes his eyes off the road for a picture!!).
We went hiking at Catalina State Park and hiked up to Romero Pools. It was a very fun hike and we had a great time!
Austin is a great hiker and he loves the outdoors. Whenever he is outside, he is so happy!!
A few weeks ago we went camping at Picacho Peak and it was Austin's first campout! He did wonderful and loved being in the tent, having a campfire, and just being in a new environment!
Here we are ready for our hike -- in the distance you can see Picacho Peak which is our goal!The hike was so much fun -- it was really pretty and challenging -- there were some steep parts with cables but we just took our time, were careful, and it was a great time!
I have a new calling in church which requires me to think about hometeaching assignments. Austin had some great ideas so he was helping me out the other night -- what a good kid!!
Again, overall we are doing wonderful -- we'll try to be better about updating our blog this summer!! Hope all is well for everyone
