My dearest, darlingest friend invited us to join her family in Arizona for a little sunshine adventure. We found a sweet deal on flights and up, up and away we went! It was fabulous.

Airport swag…

Day ONE:

We went to a beautiful butterfly pavilion. There were MANY, MUCH butterflies flying around, resting on the walk-ways, or you know, resting on humans… Notice the butterfly on Eden’s left shoulder. Fay and Eden made a new life long friend on this trip. Kyla! She’s a few years older than the girls. They played so well together and had so much fun!

I will go back. And I will take my camera. It’s vintage and has pink leather upholstery.DSC_005812325278_10156627948580587_23576915_n

We then had some fabulous pool time at the condo.

Day TWO:

Day two included a LONG drive to … drumroll please… the Grand Canyon. Check that one off the list! It was beautiful. And chilly. But mostly beautiful. Day two also included a long drive back. ALSO! It included Cafe Rio for dinner. Oh yum. Yum. 1 DSC_0086

Day THREE:

Shopping and pool!12595923_10156627948365587_1983695464_nDSC_0126They each got a BFF necklace 🙂 DSC_0121 DSC_0119Sometimes three is a crowd. #pout

Notice how Eden (centre) just casually steps into the pool as opposed to jumping on in.

Day FOUR:

This was a pretty “wild” day. We went to the Phoenix Zoo. WOW! I highly recommend getting the animal encounter add-ons with your ticket! So worth it! We fed giraffes, got selfies with giraffes, rode camels! It was awesome. We wrapped up our wild day with a fun dinner at the Rain Forest Cafe!DSC_0131 DSC_0158 DSC_0161 DSC_014012595957_10156627946855587_1750146934_nDSC_0166 DSC_0175
