Annie and Aaron and their kids are moving to China this month, to a city by the ocean called Dalian, population 6.2 million. I definitely hope & plan to visit them some time in the next three years while they are living and working there. Oh man, I can hardly wait!
Becky and I took some pictures of them on Sunday. We all ran around for a couple hours with a short break for icecream & root beer floats and then we were back at it until it got too dark. There were some clouds (some from the fires burning in the Salt River, making the sky all white), and the wind picked up for a while, kind of a very slight Arizona-style monsoon dust storm, so we didn't completely die from the heat.
We had so much fun! Here are some of the pictures:
Alison, you are such a amazing, wonderful girl. I hope the most fantastic adventures await you in China.
I was calling to Drew to turn around, never knowing that Becky was getting this adorable picture of him.
I kept trying to get shots of Annie's brand new blinged out, upgraded wedding ring. ;-)
It was getting super-hot at this point. Poor Alison.....soon after this I gave everyone frozen wash clothes that I had in my car. Hopefully that helped a little bit.
Drew's grin and Ali's bright eyes---I love this picture.
The lying down didn't last long and we are off running again.
Oh my goodness, Andrew and Ali, you guys are so cute! Can I adopt you? Or at least come to come to China and be your nanny?
Finally! Ice cream!
After the icecream, we kinda thought we were done taking pictures, but then Becky saw the sunset and we had to get back out there. Becky photoshopped all these images, and I'm so glad she worked on this one, which was dark, but she made it really nice.
I was watching the grown-ups while Becky was watching the kids and taking them to search for fairies and elves and magical ladybugs in the corn rows. The cool thing is they found some!
Annie + Aaron, these are your kids' dance moves! Becky said show me your dance moves and apparently they have them!
