I just took my first vacation from Emmy last week. Augh! Ben and I headed west to Scottsdale, AZ, for a three night stay at The Rocks resort. Although I had a wonderful time with my husband, I couldn't wait to get home to Diva! The trip was excellent, though. The Rocks is super nice and Ben and I totally indulged ourselves....sipping champagne in our hot tub, getting a massage (me), reading, running, fancy dinners. It was heaven....except that if I let myself think about Emery I got really sad.
Ben's aunt and uncle live in nearby Cave Creek, AZ, so we headed up to see them one afternoon. Their house is really cool and they have lots of animals (dogs, horses, birds) and even some hummingbirds that may as well be pets! Ben and I tried to bribe Quincy and Shorty with carrots.

Brian, Alison and Hayes came up to Greenville for trick-or-treating. The weather was less than ideal, but the rain did hold off during the nieghborhood pizza party and costume parade. Unfortunately, the kids going door to door got soaked as the rain picked up again around 7:00 p.m. At least it was warm! We had lots of trick-or-treaters come to the house....all of our candy is GONE. Emery was dressed as the cutest panda EVER and Hayes was a fierce little Blue Angels pilot. Thanks for coming to visit!
