an Arizona Thanksgiving

Ryan and I went to Arizona this year for Thanksgiving.
It was lovely!
The weather was great and we had such a good time.

Ryan flew out Monday,
I went Wednesday after work
and we drove home Sunday.

When I got there we went straight to the Botanical Gardens.
It was warm and sunny.
That night we went to dinner at Rustler’s Rooste.
It was fun and had a slide inside!

Thursday was Thanksgiving.
I went for a run.
Then we just hung out at the house all day.
It was so nice!
Ryan’s mom did the entire dinner
and it was delicious!
So much to be thankful for.

Friday Ryan and I went for a bike ride on the tandem.
That was exciting!
I didn't get any pictures; I’ll have to get some form Ryan’s mom.
Then we got ready and went to see the Phoenix Temple.
Later we went and did a little shopping
and went to dinner at the Organ Stop.
A restaurant with this huge fancy organ.
The guy just played all night.
Kind of funny!
Then we went to the Mesa Temple to see the Christmas lights.
It was beautiful!
And seeing Christmas lights in flip flops was a whole new way to go!

Saturday was lazy day.
It was our last day of vacation so we took advantage.
We made gingerbread houses and eventually made it to the pool.
It was such a nice day.

Sunday we woke up, packed up and headed for home.
12 hour drive.
Something I had never done before.
It went great though!
It was a long day but it didn't drag too much.
We stopped a few times for gas,
stopped at Glen Dam
and stopped for dinner.
We had a good time
and made it home safely around 8 that night.

Thanks to the Sorensen’s 
for letting us stay and for taking such good care of us!
It was so fun hanging out with them and getting to know them more.
We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to come again!
