I’m baaaack! I know, I’ve been missing in action for too long. I let my day job get in the way of my fun! Well that’s all going to change!
For today, let me tell you about our recent trip to Sedona, AZ. In September we spent a week in Sedona with 6 other family members. The weather was great and we all had a great time. We rented a 4 bedroom house just outside of Sedona. It was so dark at night we sat on the patio every night and stared up at the stars. Some of us even saw falling stars. Wow what a site. For a city girl being able to see that many stars in the sky was totally awesome. My husband’s cousin had an app on his IPad that when you held it up to the sky showed the constellations. It was really cool.
My brother-n-law’s sister and her husband live in Phoenix, so they drove up to join us from Saturday thru Tuesday. Four of our group played golf on Monday and two played tennis. While the others played golf, tennis and went fishing on Monday, my sister-n-law and I went shopping in Sedona with her sister-n-law. We enjoyed walking in and out of the shops and we stopped for a nice lunch with a view of the mountains. Tuesday 6 of us went to a golf course in the mountains. The views from the course were spectacular and driving back down the mountain we drove thru Jerome which was an old mining town. Jerome was built in the side of the mountain, much like the towns you see in the old movies in Europe.
We had three men that cooked our evening meals. And trust me, we ate good! (The ladies did the cleanup.) When we landed in Phoenix we stopped at Costco and did most of our shopping for the week before driving to Sedona. We had steaks, grilled chicken and beer butt chicken, all with great vegetables and wine every night. Sunday night we ate out at a fabulous Italian restaurant in Sedona. The rest of the week, the guys cooked!
I really enjoy being with family and friends for vacation and this was one of those times. We all get along and enjoy each other’s company. Everybody did whatever they wanted. I even got a day that I just sat in my jammies and read for hours! Life was good.
Where have you been lately on vacation?
