More Arizona fun

Now that the holidays have come and gone, I have more time to blog!

Here is more of our Arizona photo diary.

All this activity is tiring Gemma out!!

On Saturday of our extended weekend trip, Joe and Steph took us to the Scottsdale Farmer's Market: 

A quick stop to the library to pick up Cultural
Passes for free admission to a local garden.

In the afternoon, we took a trip to Lost Dutchman to do some real desert hiking!

The secondary goal of this trip was to really immerse ourselves in desert culture (the primary goal was to see Joe and Steph of course!).  This trip really satisfied that!  At the Lost Dutchman Park we hiked some very easy trails that had us feel like WE were the Dutchman that got lost so many years ago.  :o)  The cacti, especially, were amazing.

Luckily we found our way back to the car for a nice picnic lunch.  :o)

Next stop was to a little town that was a recreation of a wild-west settlement.  That was fun!  The views were beautiful and the kids really liked all the activity.

That evening we enjoyed yummy pizza at a local brewery (surprise surprise--Joe and Steph love them some beer).

Movie night--Gemma was lucky to get her
hair done by Auntie Steph!
