Weekend at the cabin

We are in AZ visiting our families for a couple of weeks, and instead of driving to Mesa when we came from LA on Thursday evening, we drove straight to the LeSueur's family cabin in Pine, AZ!  The cabin is one of my favorite places in the world, so I loved getting to start our trip there!

The drive here was horrible.  I won't complain too much, but let's just say I will never drive here on the same day Coachella starts again.  We were literally in traffic from LA to Coachella.   It tacked on about two hours to our drive, and we were already driving two hour farther than we usually do to make it to the cabin, so we were in the car for 9.5 hours and VIOLET NEVER SLEPT.  Ugh, it was a long night, and no one was in bed until 1 in the morning.  Violet is still catching up on sleep (which is kind of awesome because she has slept through the night for three nights in a row!)

Despite being awake the whole time, Violet was actually a really good sport in the car.

I love this video. (She is snapping along to the Muse song Glenn and I are belting):
Getting there was a relief, and the next morning we all went fishing!  Violet spent most of the time in Grandma's lap, of course.  Touching the fish grandpa caught gave her a thrill though!

The creek wasn't as well stocked as usual, but Glenn and his dad still caught these three fish.

Now we are back in Mesa, and having a great time!


  1. Violet is in a front facing carseat! I bet she is so much happier to be facing the front than the back of the car. Have fun in AZ- wish we could be there to hang out with you guys!

  2. Violet snapping was maybe the cutest video yet :)

  3. So fun! and yea about sleeping through the night, I hope it sticks.

  4. cute pictures! i'm jealous you guys got to enjoy the cabin.. we haven't been since we were dating. :(
