Valentines Weekend

The girls and I had a great Valentines Weekend. It started off a bit rocky, but it ended well. Our plan was to leave for Phoenix after work on Friday. But, on Thursday afternoon Payton kept wetting her panties. I decided if she wet her bed I needed to be worried. She did. So I called in sick and brought Payton to the doctor. It ended up that she has a bladder and yeast infection. With school covered and medicine in hand, we drove to Phoenix and got there 4 fours earlier then we planned. It was a great drive. There was traffic, but the girls were great. Greg's family was very welcoming. It was great to see some of Greg's sisters and brother that I have not seen in a long time. On Saturday Greg's nephew Cole was baptized. The girls keep talking about the pool in the church (they had no idea their was a font before Saturday). It was very nice to witness Cole become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We then ate all weekend. Stephanie makes the best food and I always gain weight while I am there. I overeat every time. Who can help it when there is yummy dinner and treats. We made it home today, found all is well. Here are a few pictures from our adventure...

Madi, Payton and cousins watching "Madagascar 2"

Payton ate more then 20 strawberries this weekend. Every time I turned around she had a red mouth.
I really couldn't get her to stop jumping and screaming, so her pictures turned out funny. Oh, well.
Driving over Hoover Dam is always slow going, so I decided to take a picture of Payton yelling "Look it's Crocodile Lake!"
"Hey what's the deal? Give me the camera (Payton says)"
Payton's view of the dam.
Madi's view of the dam.
I actually thought Payton did a good job with this picture. These towers have Arizona and Nevada time on them.
Another Madi picture (we were taking turns with the camera)
To end I thought I would share a Madi moment. (I was not around when it was said, but here is the gist of the conversation.) Madi walks out of the bathroom and tells her Aunt Megan that she likes poop. Megan asks why. She says because it is warm and soft.

Wow, my girl has some strange logic. But, I got a good laugh out of it.

How are Payton's infections??? Hopefully she's doing better. And oh Madi. I guess she does have good enough reasoning behind liking poop:)
