~Phoenix 2018 Part 1~

A couple weeks ago, we escaped our cold, never ending winter for the warmth and sun of Phoenix. It was a very welcomed break! I'm not sure who was more excited, the kids or the parents!

The kids were pretty good on the flight. We left at a reasonable time (10am flight), despite leaving the morning of Daylights Saving. Lost an hour only to gain it back when we got to Phoenix, since they don't participate in DLS. 

Henry had that flight safety brochure memorized!

He fell asleep as we were descending. Otherwise he was pretty happy.

The kids got to check out the cockpit once we landed in Phoenix. They thought that was pretty neat! I    remember doing that as a child and how thrilling it was!

We got to spend lots of time with Great-Grandma!

We spent a lot of time at the pool this trip.

Eating ice cream was a regular treat. Henry was obsessed. Not that I blame him.

We all enjoyed lots of walks (and runs) in the sun. 

We went to the big Surprise playground one day when it was a bit cooler. 

Henry loved the swing!

Henry also got to crawl on the grass for the first time. He enjoyed pulling the grass out of the ground.

We took the big kids to Legoland one day. It was a big hit!

Watching a 4D lego movie

She built this dinosaur by herself.

We checked out an airshow at the Luke Air Base nearby. It was neat to see all the planes. We even got to go inside this big cargo plane!

It was pretty loud, hot and dusty but a neat experience.

We went to Great-Grandma's for a St. Patrick's Day party. The kids liked dressing up.

Stay tuned for Part 2!


  1. We loved Legoland too! Pool days are the best - I miss them!

  2. Oh man, what an awesome trip! That sunshine and blue skies is killing me! ha
