Arizona getaway

Aaron and I were lucky enough to get away for a few days in sunny Scottsdale, AZ - without the kids!  We were celebrating my 30 1/2 birthday (I was pregnant on my actual b-day) and our 6 year anniversary.  My mom stayed with the kids for a few nights and then Aaron's parents satyed with them the last couple nights.

We flew out of Portland on Thursday morning and lucky for us, Janna, our good friend from college, let us crash at her place the night before.  She showed us her amazing downtown apartment and then we had a late dinner at a local bar - it was so great to catch up!

We got to Scottsdale early Thursday to some extreme heat!  They were having record breaking highs while we were there, but we loved it!

Our 3 full days consisted of a little shopping, lots of eating/drinking, tennis/walking, relaxing time by the pool, a movie and NAPS!  Yes, naps!  I can't tell you how good it felt to fall asleep in the middle of the day to a good book with no interruptions.

Overall we had a fabulous time!  We really did miss the kids and they seemed to come up in a lot of our conversations throughout the vacation :-).

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband of 6 years - I love you honey!!
