A couple of weeks ago, Tommy and I had 2 days off in a row together! This happens so rarely I can't remember the last time we experienced it! So, I decided we should take a short trip and see some other areas of Arizona. I made us (Tommy, Barley, and me - of course) a reservation at an adorable vacation rental in Bisbee, AZ. Bisbee is an old mining town that has turned into a tourist shopping and sight seeing destination. It is famous for it's copper mine tour, well-preserved history, stairs, eclectic shops/galleries, and small town Southwest charm.  Most of the homes are built on the hillside, so they are not reachable by car, so you must park at the bottom and take stairs to the houses. Our guesthouse had 75 stairs leading up to it. I can't imagine moving in this city! :) It is a "Mile High" city, at about 5200 feet above sea level.
 A view of the city from the highway. Bisbee is surprisingly hilly! We walked everywhere during our stay and it was tough! :)

 Bisbee draws many artists and there are a lot of galleries in downtown.

 Barley really enjoyed himself!

 We also bought a new camera recently... so we were having fun with the features :)

Acro Yoga with Babies!

Mia and I attempted some acro yoga during her visit :)

This pose is called bird

This is a new pose, not quite as easy with 2 adults... :)

A Tucson Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving we had a Kennedy Klan (minus the Paris Kennedy's) to our house. We were a full house with 6 adults, a baby, a cat, and a dog, but we somehow made it work :)

Sarah and I were relieved when we found out that Mia LOVED Barley! 
I was shocked and how well he behaved around her :)

He also LOVED her :) He gave her kisses any chance he had...

Barley was trying his best to be good around all the yummy food :)

Tommy worked on Thanksgiving, so we went to Cottonwood to eat lunch there. It was DELICIOUS (of course) :) Then, he came home and helped cook another Thanksgiving dinner! 
Whew! We wore him out that week :)

Mia also had her first Sweet Tomatoes experience. It went pretty well :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well! :)
