(286) Arizona - Day 1

My über-smart brother, Michael, has finally completed the long road to his career and taken a job with Banner Health. After medical school at USC, a five-year orthopedic surgery residency in Detroit, three years paying back his US Air Force med school scholarship in Las Vegas, and an ortho surgery fellowship in Ohio (oh - and don't forget having three kids), he has finally settled his family in Gilbert, Arizona. They moved into their house over two months ago, so I felt it was high time to visit.

Their new place is lovely (will be more beautiful once the massive amounts of oak is dealt with and my sister-in-law does her magic with the rest of the place) and the kids are settling in wonderfully. While they've gone through a lot of changes over the last several years, one thing remains the same: the kids love my games.


Today we ran a few errands at the local mall. While Kristen and Avery went to Macy's, the boys and I hit the playground. Matthew spotted a pet store across from the playground so we went over to take a look. In the window were two of the most adorable bulldog puppies, one of which looked nearly exactly like Zoey! Matty and Parker didn't quite understand why we needed to leave, why we couldn't just stand there and look at the puppies for longer. They didn't understand that if Aunt Theresa spent one more minute there they'd be driving home with a Zoey clone.
