Life takes faith to keep moving forward. A favorite day of mine at a nearby park in Flagstaff. :)

Last week I ventured out to Flagstaff, Arizona with my long time friend Danielle. We stayed with our friends Nate & Hattie who just moved out here. It was SO nice to see them and just hang out like old times. Nate always knows the best places to explore, so I got my outdoors fix that i've been needing! These photos were from our off roading adventure into Lockett Meadow Trail. I loved it so much. I can only imagine what it was like with the Aspens. I'll have a few more blog posts from our time staying here.

My sister and I decided to make sugar cookies with our niece earlier today. One thing Nova loves is Play Doh. She can sit for hours watching tutorials on Youtube. She'll even substitute Play Doh with wet paper towels and tape and pretend she's making something.  Being her aunts we try to mix things up for her (and us) every once in a while. This was a very messy experience. ;) Then I remembered that life is messy, ours especially and it's ok for her to make a mess and deformed cookies. I hope she will be happy with these photos of her as she gets older.

Story time! I've been bitten by a rabid squirrel. I know, I know. Before you read any further, yes. This story was and is the funniest i've ever encountered in all my life. I was six years old. We lived in a mobile home park and I was walking to the house next to us to see if a friend wanted to play. There was no answer at her door so I walked back to my home. Half way back into the house something furry jumped on me biting my arm continually. I ran screaming and crying around our house until our neighbor across the driveway told me to run toward him. My mom didn't hear me because she was vacuuming. I ran in my neighbors house and he ran around his house with a golf club trying to kill it. It got away and attacked the landlord a few days later. I had tons of rabie shots and it is still to this day the most hilarious story to tell. If we ever meet or see each other, ask me about my story and I'll show you the scars.

So with story, here's a pumpkin pie with this cute little creature on it. Have a good weekend!
