Today we had plans with Natalie and I felt like going up to the canyon. So we bought Subway and headed up to Brighton. We had lunch first, which we mostly spent with Stella freaking out because all of the chipmunks were after her and her lunch. She thought they were super cute until they came after her chips!

Then we walked around. I told Stella that we would feed the ducks. We even brought bread to do it, but then we couldn't find any ducks. We couldn't hear them either. So Stella was feeling pretty sad when all of the sudden we heard distant quacking and there they were. Stella was totally thrilled. She fed the ducks happily, and they ate her bread with equal enthusiasm. I was very impressed when Stella shared the little remaining bread she had with a little girl who wanted to feed the ducks too. She did it without being asked, and I thought it was so sweet.

Overall, we had a nice time walking around and enjoying nature, and had a really fun time catching up with Natalie.

There are lots of things I love about living in AZ, but I sure do miss those canyons. I love seeing your beautiful pictures, and am jealous that all that beauty and cool air is just a few minutes drive away from you. Your daughter sure is sweet!

What a fun afternoon! Subway AND ducks AND Natalie. You're so lucky! I especially love your nature shots. That one of you and Stella, AND the one of Nat and Stella, AND the one of Stella in the flowers (you couldn't have planned that one better!). So glad you posted!

I LOVE these! The purple flowers are awesome with little Stella and I love her posing. We should put Aedan & Stella together and have them do their poses. It would be awesome! :)
