Catch Up Time

In January my Dad was sworn into the House of Reps for District 5. Most of the family was there to support him. I'm so proud of him, he is doing such a great job.

Valentine's Day!

So sweet! Huh? Kyle bought me chocolate and roses and I made him the cake!

Wildlife World Zoo Time!!

On our way to the Zoo with Gram and Pop!

There were so many animals but these were the best pictures I had.

Playing with the sting rays!

The Air Show!!!

We met up with Kyle's friend Scott to watch the jets!! It was a lot of fun.

I really liked these pictures. The Thunderbirds were really really awesome to watch!!

We went to Utah in May after my 2nd semester and had a great time. Kyle's parents got us tickets to the Ifly, Flowrider and rock climbing in Ogden. I have videos but they are difficult to load so I will post them a little later.

The Kartchner Family Vacation at Big Bear Lake in California

The alpine slide at Big Bear Lake, so fun!

The Family! (We are missing Kamm and Holly and their 3 beautiful children, they are in France)

The daughters-in-law (we missed you Holly!)

Time has gone by so fast almost two years down already! So many adventures still to come...

Our "almost" two year photo shoot went very well thanks to Chad and Natalie! Thanks!

After getting settled in Arizona we decided to take a trip to the state capitol. We looked inside and walked around the memorials it was all very interesting. We also were able to go into the House of Reps. We went while my dad was still campaigning for the District 5 rep. (He won just so you know and pictures of that event are soon to come) We then ventured over to the mining museum where Kyle was in heaven with all the big machines. It was still warm outside so after the museum we went home to get cooled off.

Notice the sign above my head! He he. Kyle is in heaven!


So in December my very sweet and amazing husband took me to Tucson for a vacation. He needed to get out and so did I. I had just finished my very first semester of school and also we hadn't celebrated for our one year anniversary. So my very smart husband planned an amazing trip to Tucson for both of us and for both reasons. Neither of us had been to Tucson and really wanted to see it. We stayed in the JW Marriot Star Pass. It was unbelievable. Kyle scheduled me a massage for the first day and then we went out to eat at a local steakhouse called Daisy Mae's. It was really good. The next day we traveled to Kartchner Caverns and then to Tombstone. It was a very busy but fun day. We went back to the hotel, ordered room service and relaxed from our eventful day. The next morning Kyle had planned to see the Xavier Mission and drive to the top of Mt. Lemmon. I have never seen him so excited. He loved driving on the steep winding road. The vacation was a blast! We didn't want to come home. Here are some photos for your enjoyment!

Our vacation begins....Now!

This is mainly for my Dad. Go Wildcats!!!

Yay! Something with our name on it (sorry its turned)!!! This place was amazing! I wish I could have taken pictures inside.

Kyle and I were walking along the sidewalk in Tombstone and saw this in a doorway and just thought it was funny. Thought I would share.

We went to visit the San Xavier Del Bac Mission just south of Tucson. This place was packed so we didn't get to look inside.
