railroad park

The last few Sunday evenings have been spent at the McCormick Railroad Park in Scottsdale with Dave's family for their free concert series. At first I didn't know what to expect - but this park is seriously the coolest park I've ever been to. Lots and lots of families showed up for the concert and there are all kinds of activities for kids to take part in - train ride, carousel, playground, various exhibits, a snack shop that operates out of a caboose and Hartley's General Store with souvenirs and food. The music was great too!

Dave and I treated ourselves to some mint chocolate chip ice cream on a sugar cone this last time around.

perfect saturday evening

A few Saturdays ago, Dave and I decided to spend the evening driving neighborhoods. Checking out other areas we might like to live other than where we each live now. We had so much fun picturing our future and imagining where we might end up. After our little house/neighborhood hunt, we dined at Spinatos - one of my favorite pizza restaurants ever. His first time! And he loved it. We will be back for more soon. Our fave combo is sausage and pineapple, yum.

all-american fourth of july

We spent our July Fourth evening at the Dbacks game with my future in-laws. Baseball, hot dogs, nachos and fireworks...doesn't get much better!

Here's Dave with his niece, so cute! 

afternoon coffee date

Coffee dates (well, actually ice tea dates) are a regular occurrence with my bestie. These days they're even sweeter since they now include baby Camdyn. What's better than two hours of gabbing on a lazy Saturday afternoon and holding the cutest little newborn ever?

This last time we met up, Sarah gave me a beautiful engagement gift too! So sweet! A homemade decorative "S" for Schmitt, champagne and a frame with a picture of my fiance and I that says "Fairy Tales Do Come True." So thoughtful and perfect.
