Tessa was in town!!


We had such a fun time with Tessa in town for a few days. Sunday night we went to the Tempe Improv which was hilarious! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Then Monday we decided to take a tour of AZ and headed North with Cooper. Our first stop was old town Prescott. Then we headed to Cooper's parents house and he got to play with some dogs. Then we ate a late lunch in Jerome at the Mile High Cafe. Our last stop was Sedona and then we headed back home. We had quite the lightening show on the drive back which made it interesting.
It was great to have her in town and we are sad it was for such a short time. Glad she got to see the house and meet the animals. Can't wait for them to be here at Christmas!! Posted by Picasa

Ok so we have had some complaints that we haven't updated this in a while... SO we put a new photo of us below from the Huey Lewis and Chicago concert. We will try to keep this better updated :)
Tyler update: I have started a new job with Protection One. I left United Natural Foods Inc./ Mountain Peoples Warehouse after nearly 4 years of wonderful employement. Protection One is a residential and commercial security monitoring company. My position allows me to help families better secure their homes, and is turning out to be very rewarding! Hopefully I will enjoy many years of success within Protection One, and with a little luck it might be our ticket out of "The Valley of the Sun", and back to a state/ town with seasons.
Claire update: I am loving my new job at the puppy store. It is so fun to see the pups go home to good people and see their excitment. Don't worry, I havent brought any other animals home yet...our Matney Zoo is enough for now :)
Animal update: Cooper eye still have some stitches in it, but doing much better! Lily is great as normal and the fish tank has its ups and downs. Biff is going strong and loves this Arizona heat!
House update: The house is holding out strong. The AC was on and off for a while there, which sucked but thank god we bought the home warranty when we purchased the house!
I think that is all for now! Enjoy!!
