In September we went out to Arizona to visit the Grandparents Dibble. We thought it would be a good time to go out and enjoy their pool before it got too cold. Well, it was still 100 F or so, but it wasn’t too bad. The pool felt really great. While we were booking our flight, I asked if we should rent a car, since there are four of us now, and we wouldn’t all fit in one vehicle. They said not to worry about it. They would figure it out. At some point it occurred to me that they might pick us up from the airport in the RV, and sure enough – that’s what they did! Spencer was so excited to play in the RV. We probably spent about half the time there sitting in the driveway, playing with all the cool features of the RV.

It turns out that we weren’t the only ones from our neighborhood who had the idea to go enjoy a pool in Arizona. Rick, Alisa, and Tao from around the block were there too, visiting Alisa’s brother. So we spent one afternoon enjoying their pool. We also took a trip to the olive oil farm in the area, and we visited Shutterfly. Driving around in the RV was about the only way we could get the kids to nap, so that worked out well. It just so happens that the olive oil factory was expanding, and they had some diggers to look at, which Spencer enjoyed. And the Shutterfly tour included watching a forklift in action, which was also very stimulating for Spencer.
