Here's a view looking up our driveway from our front door. Hey, there's a building there now! Not bad for a month's progress!
I took this picture while standing in the driveway. There's the happy customer there on the left!
This is the main room (bathtub insert to get moved to bathroom!) and the doorway behind leads into Sue's studio area.
This is a view from the other side, that shows a small room on the left, and then on the back right, a little bathroom.
Sue is so excited she can hardly stand it! The windows and roof are going on next week! Check back soon for more pictures!

Here are Sue and Jack with Erin. What a cutie!
Erin seemed to have a special affinity for Jack, who was great with her. It was fun to see Erin and the boys interact. Erin is so QUIET compared to Sophie who is so LOUD :) Peter enjoyed Erin as well. We were in an outdoor shopping mall called "The District" that was a great place for the boys to stretch out and enjoy some frisbee.
We also saw this HUGE Great Dane which the boys petted for awhile. Check out that tongue!
Of course there was an REI there which we plundered for lightweight / washable clothing for China. Since we don't have an REI in Prescott, it was a good find!
Here are Rod and Jack giving a "1 - 2 - 3" to Erin. She really enjoyed this!
Sophie had a terrible time sleeping in the hotel room and kept us AWAKE for most of the NIGHT! Arrgh! Here I am ready to strangle her the next day...
It's ok though, we made up right away, but we were sleepy from the long night! I think being up all night with Sophie affected Jack too. He was tired!
Guess who wasn't tired at all the next day??
Here's Jack and his new little buddy, ErinHere's Sophie pushing Erin on a little push car in the hotel room. Sue got them matching outfits and they sure were cute!Here are Joy and Sue with the two cuties!That's all for now, I hope you enjoyed this episode!

Look Mom, my new pet!
The boys were playing basketball, so Sophie decided to join in:
Hey, isn't that a per-sonal foul??
Sophie isn't much into swimsuits at this age. We got the kiddie pool out and she did some wading with Sam and Perrin. Unfortnately someone was a bad pool citizen and the water had to be dumped out due to something besides kids floating in it. Oh Sophie!!
Perrin, hangin' in the sandbox. Someone come play!!
It's so nice to warm and clean and sitting on Auntie's lap!

Peter ready to enter the zoo.
Wow, it's hot and sunny - time to get all of us white folks (with the exception of Sophie) lubed up!
Jack and Peter's faces were kind of long in the heat, until they found a water play area. That sure changed the mood!
This was a baby orangutan that was just a few weeks old. Cute!
There was a monkey exhibit in which you could walk around and really see them.
A mister provided some much needed relief part way through the zoo!
This guy was obviously tuckered out from the heat as well. Spring hits fast in Phoenix!
This Bengal Tiger hopped up in a tree to get a better look at the tourists. I think he hungrily spotted Sophie! Chinese anyone?
We stopped at Anthem on our way home where we ate some dinner and they have a great play area. The kids played there for quite awhile while we enjoyed the warm temperatures. Today we had our first taste of summer!
