A change will do you good

Next week, we're off on one of our biggest adventures to date.  We're taking the arrow on a plane, and we're finally leaving the midwest with him. We're looking forward to warm temps, sunny skies, mornings by the pool, and who knows what else.  We also get to spend lots of time with my husband's family, as we're all vacationing together (also a first!)  Phoenix, here we come!

I've been to Phoenix before, but it was before I had the arrow.  I've stumbled upon a few great resources for family travel to Phoenix that I wanted to share. Have any you'd like to add?  I'm looking forward to adding my own two cents upon our return in a couple of weeks.

A funny story about Phoenix?  I literally walked straight into a cactus at the Desert Botanical Garden.  If you've ever wondered what that feels like, I can assure you it hurts. However, my travelmates thought it was so funny and offered me no sympathy whatsoever, even when I started to swell.  (I'm looking at you, Mom and Sister.) 

This post is a part of Mondays are for Dreaming at The Mother of All Trips.


  1. Can't wait to hear about your adventures! You guys are going to have a wonderful trip! :)

  2. Aw, thanks for the mention. We love Phoenix! If you get a chance, check out Joe's Farm Grill in Gilbert - great food, lots of fun for the kids.

    And I know you'll do great on the plane. As for the multi-generation thing...I look forward to hearing about it when you come home :)

    Have fun!
