So, my family and I enjoyed a very long and relaxing 4 day weekend. We decided to get out of town and drive 99 miles to Phoenix. It was a few degrees hotter than here in Tucson but just getting out of town for a couple of days was worth it.
We left Friday afternoon around 3pm and got to our hotel around 5pm. We decided to check out a local Pizza place called big boys pizza. The pizza was pretty good but it took close to 45 minutes just to get it to our table. After that we went to Bass pro shop to check out a new gun safe for my husband. We left Bass Pro shop and headed to the hotel for the night.
We started Saturday with a dip in the hot tub. My son can’t stay in a hotel without getting to at least go swimming for a little bit. Saturday was a full day of shopping for us. My sister and her family met us for the day. We got to go do Ikea, Fry’s electronics, and Arizona mills mall. I bought a dress for my sister-in-laws upcoming wedding and a few other clothes that I needed(wanted). We ended up meeting my sister-in-law and her fiance for dinner at chili’s and ran into a bunch of Peace protesters(they didn’t sounds all the peaceful to me).
Sunday as another day of shopping(mostly looking) around. We went to two malls and finally found one with a play area for our son. We let him play for about an hour before we headed back home.
Monday which of course was Labor day we spent laboring over some yard work. We spent about 2 hours in the morning pulling up bamboo that we have been trying to get rid of for about 3 years. I think we finally got it this time. We pulled it up and dug up all the roots. That night we grilled burgers and had the in-laws over for dinner and a movie. We watched a movie called Hugo. Pretty cute family friendly movie that kept us adults entertained as well as our almost 4 year old.
Well that was My long and relaxing weekend. What did everyone else do? Did you get a 3 or 4 day weekend?
