Aiyana has been practicing her front hand springs and has already landed a few.  This is the first one that I caught on video.  She's in her advanced acro class at Tempe Dance West.

Fall Break | Schnepf Farms

We really enjoyed fall break this year.  It was a nice un-wind from all of craziness that happens when we are juggling school, homework, school activities and dance.  The girls picked up a few tumbling classes at the gymnasium and dance continued throughout the week, but we also got to do some activities.  Dana took the day off work on Friday and we took the girls to Schnepf Farms in Gilbert, AZ.  It was our first time there and we had a lot of fun.


This carousel is over 100 years old...






This would be a fun place to do a photo shoot.  Too bad they charge $100 for the property usage fee.


We rode this roller coaster a few times.  The girls LOVED it.


Clara... Ready for her first ride.


Aiyana... Ready for her first ride.









They are just cute!  I guess they were too scared to slide down alone.




Rootbeer, hay bails and pumpkins...


Petting farm fun...


This goat followed Dana around until he would pet him.



Corn maze...


We got lost for a while...


Hayrack ride...


By this time of the day it was 95 degrees.  We were pretty hot and tired.



It was a fun trip.  I would love to go back when the weather is cooler.
