For Memorial Day Ryan and I road-tripped it with the Glassmans down to Arizona to visit our friends the Broadbents.  We were so excited to get away and have a relaxing long weekend.  Here we are at some no-mans-land gas station stretching our legs. 

After 10 1/2 hours in the car we had finally made it.  Tyler's Dad was nice enough to take us out on the boat on Friday to wakeboard and get ourselves a nice Arizona tan.

Each of our men were very impressive on the wakeboard.  I had never wakeboarded in such a tight canyon and surrounded by rock and mountains.  It was so beautiful and the weather was perfect.

Lara was keeping everyone safe by waving the flag when someone went down.

Lara and Whitney braved the cold lake water too.  I was super impressed.

I tried to stay on dry ground as much as possible while taking pictures of everyone.

There might have been too much lovin' going on while we were on the boat.  I call it lake fever.

That night we went on the hunt for scorpions.  They happen to glow green when you shine a blacklight on them so we took a blacklight and BBQ tongs and went hunting.  I can't believe these were all crawling in the backyard!  We properly disposed of them after trying to find as many as we could.  For those of you who don't know what you would do to kill scorpions, here you go...
Yep...we had a little roast.  Bye bye scorpions.

Here is the proof that we did attend church.  Tyler's dad spoke in Sacrament meeting and did a great job.  It was fun to go to a different ward but I forgot how noisy the family wards are!  The kids were everywhere and it felt like home.

We were loving playing games outside to enjoy the perfect weather.  Bocce ball was a favorite.  Ryan's form is stellar :)

We were loving being outdoors!  P.S. they caught a scorpion on the wall right behind us the night before!

The chickas were looking glamorous while the boys...
...did their own thing.  So cute.  We might have spent a little too much time together though.

Here we are at our last stop on our drive home.  We had so much fun and were so sad to leave paradise.  We got so spoiled with yummy food and perfect weather.  Thanks Broadbent's for being amazing hosts.  After a week of recovery I am totally ready for another adventure.  Who's with me?!
