Sunny Phoenix

First, may I just say…we could not be more grateful to our amazing and wonderfully helpful parents for keeping our babies while we enjoyed the sun for a few days. We know just how lucky we are to be able to get away and know that our kiddos are in the very best hands…thank you so much to the grandparents.

Next, let me just say…getting away for a few days with just the husband and I was So. Ah-mazing. We got to talk! To each other! With out interruption! We got to sleep in! And relax! Oh man. It was awesome.

Corey had to be in Phoenix over the first part of the week for work, I flew out on Thursday where we had 3 full days of fun.  We stayed at The Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, a place we would highly recommend.  We ate, we drank, we hiked, we sat our butts by the pool.

Here are a few snap shots (from both my iphone and my big camera) of our sweet little time together…

The next morning we went for a hike in the desert.  The sky was so blue and it was fun exploring…but man, that heat is no joke. jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-4-2jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-5-2

Then, back to another grueling day at the pool…sigh…jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-22jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-23jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-26jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-28

We finished up our time in Phoenix at the home of my Uncle and Aunt. We relaxed in their pool, watched the derby and drank mint juleps.  We only took the one photo by the pool on our last day (I blame the mint juleps) but it was such a nice visit and wonderful afternoon and evening.   jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-24jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-29jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-30

This was one of the best “grown-up time outs” we’ve ever had!  🙂jaimelenhartphoto_PHX-31
