Meet Max

Max is our new dog. He's 1 year old. He is a chihuahua mix, a mutt. He's adorable. We love him. Kylie gave him his first name. Cory gave him his second name, Chance. So his name is Max Chance Clayton. He uses the bathroom outside, he doesn't bark, and he lets Cory carry him around like a baby for as long as Cory wants to. He's seriously such a good dog. We really lucked out with him.

Arizona Grand Oasis

We went to the Az Grand Oasis, used to be the Pointe, like we do every year. They have recently redone the resort and the rooms are so nice! We had so much fun. I ran into one of my old students and his family in the wave pool. I also saw one of Theo's old students from last year. His family was in the room right next to ours and his little brother was in Ky and Cory's K class and Ky's 1st grade class. Nothing like running into families at the school where you are a teacher in your bikini. As Kylie would say...awkward. It was soooooooo fun though. Probably our best year yet.

We went to Newport Beach this past weekend with Aleisha, Jesse, Colby, and Brexlin. We had so much fun. It was exhausting though. Monica's roommates were so nice to let all of us stay there. The kids were a little wild at times, but pretty well behaved. Brexlin got burned at the beach, bad mom Aleisha. Cory and Colby took off sprinting down the beach away from us. We had to send Monica to fetch them. Cory found a really cool sand dollar. Unfortunately, it broke on the way home. All in all, it was a great trip. It was great to see Monica. I loved the beach. I need to live by a beach, most definitely. PS...when did kids stop sleeping in the car?
