Desert Breeze Railroad Park

Our friend Aubrey had her birthday party at Desert Breeze Railroad Park in Chandler this past weekend. We hadn't been there in SO long. Which is kind of sad, since I LOVE it there and so do my girls. It is a GREAT family friend and inexpensive park in Chandler that has TONS to do. Carousels, Train rides, splash pad, sand area, playground, duck pond, swings, tennis, concessions, etc. They have a ton to do.

So we met up with our friends for a fun filled Saturday. While the party was supposed to be from 10:30-12:30 we were still there at 2pm! In fact literally there were three of us dragging crying children to the car, cause they didn't want to leave. And poor Ryen had been up since 6:30am and hadn't napped yet. We had so much fun! Lets get rolling on some pics!!

We had fun on some Train Rides:

We rode the Carousel and the swings:

We loved on some friends ;)

What an awesome day to be outdoors, enjoy the Fall weather and have a fun time with our friends.

Happy Birthday Aubrey!! :)

Breakfast and playtime with my little...

I just love having some alone time with my little Bunny. Although I do feel guilty sometimes now that Ella is in preschool, I also remember the two years where Ella and I filled our days with giggles and cuddles and playdates with friends before Ryen came along. And Ella had me all to herself. So I work on feeling less guilty every time Ryen and I venture out.

Today we started with breakfast at Chompies. My little ham loves to get her picture taken!

Then we headed to the mall for some fun in the play area.

I love how fearless and independent she is getting...

And how much she laughs and smiles and enjoys every moment.

And even though she is too little now to fully get it, I know I will blink my eyes and she will be playing hopscotch like an old pro. big sigh...

I love you Ryen. Thanks for a great Mommmy Bunny day! :)

Mom's Night of Drunken Debauchery

So what normally is a happy hour visit with my Mom friends turned practically into an all nighter for this Mom who is usually in bed by 10:30 unless I am up late blogging. ;) First me and some girls went to The Living Room in Chandler for Happy Hour to celebrate our friend Keely's birthday. We had some yummy food and drinks (mmmm chocolate martini) and snapped a photo... (of course).

Then we decided there needed to be a dance floor at The Living Room since their "DJ" (if you could call him that), was actually playing some decent tunes. But when my friends asked why there wasn't a decent dance floor the guy responded, this is a "wine bar". Point noted. So out the door and up the road to The Sand Bar is where we headed. From there it was dirty named shots and beers...

... add hip hop music, a dance floor and 10 Mom's blowing off steam and you got yourself a party!! Mommas got their grooves back... LOL

We had a blast and of course we went nuts and a little silly at times with the camera! I am so glad I am not the only one who loves having the camera out to capture these moments. In fact as you can tell from the fact that I am actually IN some of these photos my friends had a good time taking turns snapping photos too. :)

PS Sorry some of the pics are blurry, we tried to take many without flash and we kept messing with the settings.
