It's FINALLY Official!

Yes folks, its true! Its official! We are 100% going to Arizona! Steve signed his contract last week to work for a medical group in Phoenix called Abrazo.

Here he is, signing his life away

We'll be moving July 10 and are so looking forward to the 30 hour drive with an 18 month old. One bright spot though is that we are having movers come, pack us up, drive it there and unpack it! Steve starts work July 31, the day after the family reunion. We are so excited!

Crossroads Village and Huckleberry Railroad

Last Saturday we went to Crossroads Village which is an 'old-time' village just north of Flint. It kind or reminded me of Nauvoo. They had a farm, shops, a hotel with a fiddle player, old fashioned rides and a train. They were also doing games, storytelling, face painting and balloon tying.

We got to pet a cow and see it being milked.

Our Child Prodigy

So, I was getting worried that when Miranda goes into nursery in a month that she would be the only kid to CRAWL into the classroom. She has definitely taken her own sweet time, but she has finally decided that its time to WALK!

She has been cruising for months and walking holding onto our hands forever, but she just wouldn't take the plunge and do it on her own. Now that she is walking, she keeps surprising me. For one, walking is much quicker and quieter than crawling so she can 'sneak' up behind me. Also, when I see her walk into a room, I just start lauging because I'm so used to seeing her crawl.

Of course I thought that my child would be one of those kids who walk by 9 months and I hadn't even heard of kids walking as late as 17 months, but we're still pretty excited for her!
