Guess who escaped to Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ for a mini vacation?! We did!! Mooooonths ago I hinted at the idea of going to Arizona to visit family and hangout with some friends. Well that amazing of husband of mine made my dreams come true, once again, because hello?! Spring training! And you know what? This truly was the perfect little vacation!!
This trip was full of everything a vacation should made up of! Swimming. At 9am! Oh bless that warm Arizona sun! Naps with Mia. Baseball, but not as much baseball as we originally planned. We went to our first game with our good friends/travel buddies from home and let's just say it's not the same with toddlers. Our babies are only a couple weeks apart and it's safe to say that no one enjoyed that game, ha! So we sent the boys to a night game together while the girls attempted to shop and stuff our faces with ice cream. Food. We ate so. much. food. Friends! We got to play with our friends from home (because the only time we can find for each other are these vacations, ha!), friends that I met through blogging (but more like sisters, or something, because I'm creepy like that. I can't even describe it except for the fact that we were meant to be friends forever!! It just felt SO good to be reunited! And our hubs got along perfectly. Have I mentioned that we were all meant to be friends forever?!), and I even got to meet a blogger I've adored since the very beginning of my blogging days, Shalyn! Arts Festival (and food trucks!!) Shopping. The zoo. And family. I admit that I didn't get one picture with my cousins and all of our kids playing, but it's because I was too busy soaking up time with them! We always go too long between seeing each other and yet we always have the BEST time! It just felt so good to see everyone!
The only thing I could do without is the driving... but I must admit that Mia was an angel for our trip home, despite some major delays and having to reroute to some back roads. Ugh! We seriously loved Arizona and can't wait to go back, someday :)
