Sedona - Double Blacks & Watering Holes

Last week we enjoyed a 10 day trip to Sedona, AZ!!  The bike scene is amazing in Sedona...The trails are very unique with most being designed and or maintained by mountain biking groups.  If you like biking in Moab, we cant suggest Sedona enough!  Its a vegetated Moab, most rides provide a decent amount of shade and cool canyon breezes that flow through the area.  The Oak creek that flows through the town has numerous swimming hole options good to cool off.  The boys loved all the adventure Sedona had to offer as well...  Slide Rock State Park and Red Rock Crossing, both cant miss places if you have kiddos!!  We will be back!!

It's a Boy - Meet Declan John McQuade

After 48 hours of induction and labor, Kristin brought Liam's baby brother and our second little angel into this world.  Yesterday was one of the most emotionally draining times of my life, and all I did was stand there and hold K's right leg, as she pushed for 4 grueling hours. There are no words to describe the miracle of birth and that beautiful moment a human life is brought into this world.  Kristin was breathtakingly beautiful and utterly heroic yesterday...your three boys are so proud of you!
