We are going to Nana and Papa's in Arizona for January 2012... bye, bye, Michigan Snow!
Lucas slept most of the way but Nicole was helpful entertaining him when he was awake.
400 miles down ... 1400 to go....
By the time we hit New Mexico, we were all asking " are we there yet? "
Even Sydney was sick of being in the car!!
Lucas kept sleeping and Nicole manage to smile almost the whole way there.

But we were all


to finally reach Mesa, Az.

Nana was happy to see her grandson.

Lucas was happy to move around
after sitting in a car seat for so long.
We had Christmas again at Nana and Papa's house.

We went to the Phoenix Zoo for their ZooLights.
The whole zoo was decorated
with thousands and thousands of lights.... very pretty.
Nicole loved it.
