Save the Book Babe

My friend Missy and I went to a charity event put on by some authors to raise money for a woman that has breast cancer. The event was called Save the Book Babe. It was so much fun. Stephanie Meyer was one of the authors that helped put this event together and we were able to get a book of hers signed. The authors donated stuff to auction off and people were very generous in there support. What a cool way to help out a friend!

Hiking with the rattlesnakes

The kids and I went for a hike on Saturday. A lady at the start of the trail warned me to keep the kids close because the rattlesnakes were out. We really enjoyed out hike until we were on our way back. We ran into 2 rattlesnakes and the kids were really freaked out. The desert is so beautiful but there are a lot of creepy creatures that live in it.

When grandma came Gracie was able to have beautiful braided hair. This is just something I do not have a talent for as you can see from the other photo of Gracie.
