While in Phoenix....
-My in-laws treated us all to a Diamondbacks game. So fun! We won 13-8 and saw fireworks afterward.
-We lived at the hotel swimming pool and let the cousins swim the day away.
-We got severely sunburned but wouldn't admit it so we called it a "base tan".
-We huddled around the air conditioner.
-We changed rooms because the air conditioner broke down. It couldn't handle our demands. "You can't HANDLE the heat!"
-We drank Strawberry Island Breezes from Sonic. I highly recommend them. They are worth the brain freeze that might occur if you consume them too quickly!
-We shopped at the mall! (Totally lame to those of you who have one close, but like water to a thirsty man for those of us who don't.)
-For the first time ever, I was professionally fitted for new undergarments, and now realize that I have been buying the wrong sized bra for half a decade! That's a whole lot of ill-fitting bras, ladies! (Now that I've shared this personal information on the web, I can never ever run for president or it will be used against me in my opponent's campaign.)
-We ate at restaurants we don't have up here...Red Robin, Cafe Rio, Texas Roadhouse, Dunkin Donuts... (Every restaurant we ate at represents one meal that I didn't have to do the dishes after. That is a vacation in itself.)
-We were interviewed by the police for a crime that took place two doors down from our hotel room, and the kids got police badge stickers for our "Cooperation". Nine policemen at our hotel dusting for fingerprints and removing "evidence" from two doors down = Totally Creepy. I don't know what the crime really was, but I have a great imagination.....
-We stayed up late watching shows on TV because we don't have them at home. My kids got a real education watching " Hillbilly Handfishing". (We only let our children watch the "highest quality" shows at hotels. Wink, Wink.)
-We went to Costco
to eat the samples to stock up on things we can't buy in bulk around here, namely Charmin Toilet Paper, and Ranier Cherries.
-We enjoyed every scorchingly hot moment of the weekend with our family!
