Four Poplins, four days, four cities/sites explored… road trip! Last week my mother and father in-law arrived as our third and final round of visitors for the month. Looking back on the week I can’t believe we fit everything into four short days.
The guys spent a morning golfing, they also accomplished some home improvement items from our list, and we went on an adventure around northern AZ. Our first stop was
a beautiful city on Route 66 where we wandered the town and stayed the night.
Next was a short drive to the south rim of the Flagstaff Grand
Canyon, and holy cow, it was GRAND! We only spent a few hours and
were definitely not dressed right or in the right shoes, regardless it was amazing. Next time I plan on
packing better and hiking down a little further, but for this impromptu trip it
was perfect to see the views, take tons of pictures and enjoy the day at one of
the world’s wonders. We also drove into Sedona, which was by far the most
gorgeous place we have been in AZ. We forgot we were in the desert state and
started to feel like we were in Tahoe for the evening. It was awesome to finish
our mini road trip surrounded by greenery and lots of fresh air.
On our last night all together JD and I took his parents to one of our favorite date night spots in
, Studio Movie Grill. It is so much
fun to have a full on restaurant and movie theater in one, with yummy food and
extra big comfy leather recliners. I’m so happy JD had a few days off work and
we were able to hang out, relax, travel and explore all together. I probably
took a hundred pictures during the trip (I think I have a problem), so I posted
a bunch below. Scottsdale
August has been so great with all of our house guests and happenings! I am already excited and looking forward to September’s adventures though… camping camping camping!! Until next time everyone…
