Arizona Getaway

This past weekend we took a few extra days off and drove out to Arizona for a mini getaway.  My son is playing baseball right now so we thought it would be fun to take him to see the Angels during spring training.  

We stayed at the Arizona Grand Resort where it's a perfect place for anyone that loves a little swimming pool adventure.  There's a lazy river, wave pool and several water slides.  With temps in the upper 90s, my son was in heaven in the pool.  

We also headed to the Grand Canyon which is even more majestic than any pictures I've seen.  

This first outfit is what I wore for the road trip.  The drive time is about 6 hours from California to Arizona so my goal is to be as comfortable as I can on the road. I don't know what is more comfortable a maxi dress.

It was in the upper 90s the day of the baseball game.  I made sure my head was protected and I had a big tote to bring in water to stay hydrated.  Next time, I am bringing a small towel to sit on because the seats got too hot in the sun and it was burning my leg.

As we driving into the city of Grand Canyon, we were talking about how awesome it would be to see the Grand Canyon by air.  My son's birthday is coming up in about a week so we gave him the option of having a birthday party or the helicopter ride.  He was so excited, he of course wanted to ride in a helicopter.  It was such an amazing experience to see it from an aerial perspective.  The ride was only 30 minutes but worth every penny.

Just a funny comment about that yellow thing that my son is wearing.  It's the floatation device that we were all required to wear while on board.  So I was thinking, if the helicopter crashed, what are the odds that I would actually land in the rapids and not on the rocky canyon?  I am thinking the chances are pretty slim and that the floatation device is pretty useless.

I had purchased a selfie stick and and brought it with me on this trip.  If you don't have one, run out and buy one,  it so awesome for selfies and family pictures.  We had so much fun using the selfie stick and not needing to ask anyone for help.
