weekend wrap-up

Kyle and I traveled to Arizona this weekend to celebrate his grandma's birthday. We flew to Phoenix on Friday and enjoyed dinner with his parents and grandparents, then travelled to Tucson on Saturday to visit his great-grandma. She is one of the few relatives that I have never been able to meet, so it was quite a treat! We had such a great visit!

This was at Great-Grandma Holmes' house. All of the 'ornament's on the tree are actually pieces of jewelry that belonged to Kyle's great-great-grandmother. The picture isn't that great, but I loved this idea. It is such a neat way to display these special pieces and was oh-so-pretty!

The Kruegers + Great-Grandma Holmes. She very much lived up to all of the wonderful and funny stories I have heard about her over the years. So happy that I was finally able to meet her!

The birthday girl!

If you've never been to Arizona, the sun is CRAZY bright. That explains my sunglasses and Kyle's squinting.
