Doug and Randi's Day Off!

Doug found out last week that he was actually going to be getting Veteran's day off so we decided to take advantage and have a day of fun. Doug did end up having to go into work for a couple hours for a meeting but afterwards we took Averi on a hike up a hill near Doug's office. We had to treck over some rocky terrain with the stroller before we got to the paved path (see picture).
And pushing the stoller uphill was brutal as the trail was pretty steep (see pics)
But once we made it to the overlook point we got to rest and look out over the city of Tempe. It was gorgeous and the weather could not have been more perfect.

Then we hiked back down and let Averi walk some of the way. She got tired after less than five minutes with those tiny legs of hers though so I ended up carrying her which I'm sure would have been easier than trying to restrain the stoller from rolling all the way down the mountain!

After our hike, we went across the street and stolled through Tempe Beach Park. We ate a picnic lunch there overlooking the Tempe Lake. It was SOOO relaxing and fun to actually hang out as a family during the day.

We debated going to the Zoo but Averi was getting tired and grumpy and I wanted her first trip to the zoo to be enjoyable for her. Soooo...

We went to a matinee at Tempe Marketplace and saw Morning Glory (cute and funny... I recommend seeing it) while our perfect angel baby slept the whole time! Doug and I joked about how we felt like we were Ferris Bueller. :) After the movie we shopped around a bit then finally drove home. The best day ever had come to an end. Tear.

That looks SOOOOOO fun and I'm totally jealous that Averi slept through a movie. I'm pretty sure I couldn't get Kenley to do that. Looks heavenly!

Oh how fun! I love that she slept through an entire movie. That must have been nice. We should try that, I don't know if we would be so lucky!
