Lake Havasu City

At the end of March, we decided to brave an almost 4 hour flight + a 2 1/2 hour drive with both of the girls to head out to Lake Havasu City, AZ to visit Scott's parents. We were a little nervous about the flight, but thankfully the girls did pretty well. It was a lot of work to keep them entertained, but we didn't have any major meltdowns on the way, so I would consider that a success. 

Checking email on the plane!

The weather was beautiful the week we were there and we didn't have a lot on the agenda, so we just spent as much time as possible at the parks and near the water.

We took Carys on her first hike and she loved it. We explained we would be walking "off-road" and since Daddy usually takes her "off-road" on their bike rides, she knew just what this meant.

Harper obviously didn't mind coming along. She snoozed most of the time. 

The trail lead to a cactus garden and Carys had fun looking at all the different types. She called this big guy a bunny cactus because "look, it has ears just like a bunny!" Smart girl.

And then we found some actual bunny cactus-es? or cacti, or whatever.

And this little guy was fun to watch.

Carys did great walking with us, but right around the last 1/4 mile she got a little tired. So I carried her for awhile and then Grandma took a turn.

After our hike, we had a picnic on Windsor Beach. It was a beautiful spot. And I love this picture of her walking with Grandpa. These two are great buddies!

Harper got to spend a lot more quality time with Dad on this trip and she did not mind this one bit!

After heading home for afternoon naps, we took another walk along the river and stopped to get some ice cream. Harper was always so happy to be outside checking everything out, she was just an angel the whole trip.

Making a wish!

Chilling back home on the patio.

Love my sweet girl.

Of course, we took a lot more pictures, so I'll post the rest from our trip soon!

Happy Friday!
