Arizona

Why is it so hard to come back to real life?
Scottsdale, Arizona was SO fun!
Here is a little rundown of our getaway!

Tennis every day.
Wait...that should be in CAPS!
TENNIS EVERY DAY!
We stayed at the Scottsdale Resort,
and the courts were ours for the taking.
Me likey.


He likey too.
(Hey we matched!)


Got to relax by the pool.
The weather was about 75 degrees, so it felt great.
Trev swam, I soaked up the warmth.

We hiked Camelback Mountain which was AWESOME.
Beautiful cactus everywhere!
I honestly did not know that Arizona had palm trees either.
Cactus with the palm trees is just kind of cool.
Here's a doozie cactus...check it out!
(Trev is at the bottom of it).

Yes, toward the top, it got a little "rugged".
Uphill rocks.
LOVED it.
Seriously, I did.

Check out the view.
This is about halfway up I think.



Here's me at the top!
We hung out here for a little while before heading back down.
This was the one place I wish we'd had the kids with us,
they would have enjoyed this hike.

Cute little cactus...
OUCH!

King of the world...

Chipoltle...burritos as big as your head.
BUT kinda yummy.


We took a lovely walk around the resort one night.
And snapped a few of these.
He posed with me...yup he loves me.

We also shopped, ate, and explored.
We want to go back.
There was so much too see, but too little time to see it.
But the getaway was good.
The getaway is ALWAYS good.

The first picture made me smile, at first it looked like you were chewing gum and had blown a big green bubble, then I realized it was the ball. Glad you had a great tim. You take great photos :-)

All your pictures made me homesick for AZ. I am so excited to be going home in a few weeks.
