Before I get to the meat of this post, I want to show you Lola, Nick's dog. She is beautiful and I think she is awesome! Albeit energetic...
We went out with Lauren and her nephew Jackson for lunch. Delicious!!
How pretty is she?
And Carlin was a goof.
We tried to go in a group to the Botanical Gardens, but since it was Spring break we weren't able to get in. The gardens have a "maximum capacity" for the day, and they don't keep track of how many people leave so you can't actually go in after enough people have entered. We talked and thought about what we could do after driving all that distance and it already being the afternoon, and I proposed going to Tempe Town lake and us paddle boating around the lake. Me being the "guest" everyone agreed (though Carlin complained).
We got there after a graffiti art contest had ended. We didn't get to see very much (they took away many of the frames of art before we got there), but I took a photo of this one because I really like the colors and detail, even though it doesn't make sense to me.
We then went out Paddle boating. Katie had to work and Aaron was busy which is why neither of them is in these photos, but we broke into 3 groups. Sarai, Mom and Dad in one boat, Carlin Aislyn and I in another, and Meg and Troy alone in the third.
Our epic boat.
It was an awesome way to spend a wonderful afternoon in great weather. I do feel like March is an awesome time to visit AZ.
