{Arizona} family adventures

Monday, February 13, 2012

for the past two years we have taken up spending an extended vacation in ARizona. We love love the warm sunny days here!~ our spring/summer and fall is always very busy for us. With my hubby and I being self-employed winter is our slower time. Our balance in our life is to escape for some quality family time. We are the type of personality that we need to leave our house to have a break. We still find ourselves working while here but on a much lesser level. Its great to be able to catch up with each other and play with our kids. 
Last year we worked on tennis...this year we've added swimming. We have a house with our own pool. Its been amazing. My children are progressing farther than they ever would with lessons. 
We even added a little trip to disneyland. We were joined their by Grandpa and Nana. We loved our day at Disneyland. We rocked it for over 10hours with no meltdowns. Then we brought back G&N to our "holiday house" in AZ. We loved having them here with us and sad to see them leave. We still have 3 more weeks of our time here. Looking forward to some more great days by the pool, tennis court and just hanging out. 
We've taken in a phoenix coyotes/calgary hockey game, road trips to Disneyland, checked out Palm Springs, Mesa flea market, Apache trail, Ostrich farm, schneff farms, eaten many amazing mexican meals,  and many more amazing sights.
This trip so far I've taken a break from hauling around my DSLR camera around...and chosen my iPhone and p&shoot camera to enjoy the time with my family and not worry about spending time behind the camera as much. I great way to recharge.
Enjoy the photos.
Anyone going to disneyland...stay tuned for tips from the Watson's to make it an amazing trip. things we learned.
enjoy your day...smiles, Tammy

ps as I work on this...Kent is helping the girls with their math homework. Love listening to them learn something new. last week was our week off of school this week they are back at their homework...then off for tennis:)
