re-capping the past couple of weeks

I've been MIA lately haven't I? Not that I have readers, BUT this is a diary of sorts of my life here in Phoenix. Here is a very lengthy quick recap of what has been happening in the life of  me and my boo's.

We went up, down or over (I don't have my bearings on that yet) to Prescott to visit my husband's parents. We walked around the Whiskey Row downtown and had such a nice visit. I enjoy that little town with all its charm, shops, diners, and bars.
We went to a farmer's market and to an orchard the next day. My boo is such a google champ. He finds the neatest things for us to do. The farmer's market was cool, but wasnt what we thought. I think we both pictured a huge venue with tons of veggies, fruits, flowers.... this had some of that, but alot of local vendors pushing their products. We did get some yummy finds. We got some delish green chili hatch, a great spicy salsa and some kale. I was dying to make these. I saw them on A Classy Southern Wife's blog several times and needed to see what the rage was about. Tasty.
The orchard was picture perfect. We drove up and there was a white fence surrounding the property, horses running around and beautiful fruit trees everywhere.

The next weekend we checked out the Wildlife Zoo. It was such a fun time. Little boy slept most of the day, but the hub and I had a good time walking around and talking to the animals... especially the monkeys. Yes, we are dorks.
Little boy did wake up for a while and we saw the giraffes.

During the week, we typically stay home and have family time. This week though, we got tickets to the Coyotes hockey game. I love live hockey. It is so fun to watch!
People stopped us the whole night to see Maddox. He really is such a doll. We never thought that we would be able to continue to "do things" after we had a baby. He is a dream. He barely fusses and usually just people watches, has a bottle and takes a nap. Awesome.
This little sack is a genius idea... although it is pretty hard to get the baby in and out of--especially by yourself. I saw a sack at the store yesterday. It looks like a little sling, but i dont know if I would like that too much. I like being able to see his little sweet face.

Our Vegas friends Kat and Paul were in town visiting his parents, so we went to Old Scottsdale to meet them for dinner here. It was such a cool place. We ate outside. Was a perfect night to be under the stars.

Arizona does have beautiful nights... so far.
