This past weekend, Huz and I escaped to Arizona to recharge our Vitamin D stores. But alas, the weather was not stellar. Regardless, we had a great time. (We’ve gone to Phoenix the past 2 years in October to visit Jodus’ family and somehow expected that sort of weather. Not so.)
We arrived Friday around noon and after picking up the rental car and doing a quick lunch, we met up with Jodus’ little brother in Tempe.
I wish I had gotten a picture of all of us but alas, I suck. We walked around a street fair, had a really good dinner at Four Peaks Brewery, and hung out at Dave & Buster’s afterward. It was a fun evening.
Saturday wasn’t the nicest day out so we took it pretty easy. We did manage to hit up Frontier Town and have the most amazing Mexican ever.
And because we are sixty, we spent the evening playing Monopoly. And Jodus schooled us.
Sunday, we drove up to Sedona for a change of scenery. This is the third time we’ve been to the Phoenix area and our first time that far north of the city.
Sedona was gorgeous. But see that dusting of snow? Yeah, it was pretty cold.
We wandered around an old Spanish missionary that was turned into a shopping center. It had so much charm!
We had lunch at Oak Creek Brewery & Grill and stuffed ourselves silly.
We wandered through the town of Sedona, in and out of the cute little tourist shops. Next time we go, I’m making everyone do a Pink Jeep Tour.
(Note the borrowed sweatshirt because I’m the retard that packed shorts and a bathing suit.)
On the way back to my MIL’s, we made a pit stop at Arizona’s Biggest Christmas Tree. No lies.
It was pretty epic.
One of my favorite parts of the weekend, besides helping my MIL unload 80 lbs of concrete, was flipping through the family photo albums and seeing cute little Pippin puppy pictures! (She’s 9 now!)
Monday, we took off after a leisurely morning and a lunch at the airport. It was a quick trip but nice to get away and see some family.
