We took a quick trip to the desert for Spring Break. It seemed kind of funny to be leaving a vacation destination to go to another vacation destination one state over. But it was nice to visit family and enjoy our typical Arizona activities. I especially appreciated the break from housework and homework and I desperately needed some undisturbed time to catch up on work.
We have our Arizona routine down; bike rides, daily pool dips, dinner on the patio, trips to various playgrounds and an afternoon at the Fairmont.
Nash officially reached the 42″ mark which meant he could go down the gigantic water slides.
He was just a tad excited about that.
Blake and Nash were little fish in my parents’ backyard pool.
It took a lot of convincing to get them out of the water, but I loved the chats they had while drying out on the lawn chairs every evening.
Crew napped during most of pool time but he loved eating outside.
No trip to the desert would be complete without visiting the world famous fountain.
Crew was over the moon about the ducks as usual. We picnicked by the lake and he thought it was the funniest thing in the world when we fed the ducks some leftover bread.
We could barely pull him away to eat once he locked eyes with those ducks.
The splash pad happened to open for the season the day before we drove home, so we made sure to get our fill.
I wasn’t sure what Crew would think of it because Nash did not love water spraying at him at this age. But Crew dove right in with pure joy.
Somehow Finn didn’t end up in any pictures besides the ones with the beach ball, but he didn’t skip a beat as his normal, smily self during his first trip to the desert.
We never really stray from our typical activities at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. There’s no need to switch it up when we have a good routine down pat. And it wasn’t too hard to leave, knowing that we were headed back to more nice weather, pools and the ocean.
