So we made it home from Arizona... but not without having lots of adventures!

Day 1: Thursday, February 5, 2009
Woke up at 2:45am in order to leave our house and meet at my parents' house by 4:15am. That was an early morning! Travel the entire day was amazingly smooth and easy. We arrived in sunny Scottsdale around 1pm, just in time for lunch. We ate delicious sandwiches at a little Bistro and it was wonderful. That afternoon we lounged by the pool... because it was 83 degrees! Only about 83 degrees warmer than Indianapolis when we left... darn!

Day 2: Friday, February 6, 2009
Got up early and enjoyed breakfast at Butterfield's Pancake House. So scrumptious! Thank you to my friend and co-worker Mrs. Funke for recommending such a yummy place! Then it was to the car for a 3 hour drive to Tombstone. To see those pictures check out my Flickr page. We had lots of fun and I think Kris was basically in Heaven!

Day 3: Saturday, February 7, 2009
After enjoying another tasty breakfast at Butterfield's (yes... we had to go two days in a row... it was just that good...) we had to sit through a sales presentation about the resort and Westin hotels, resorts, etc. Only 2.5 hours later and we were free! Then it was back to the resort to lounge and just enjoy the fact that we were in a place almost 80 degress warmer than home and also that we weren't at work. It was great! Saturday night we had wine by the fire, outdoors. Can't beat it. I need to move to Arizona. Anyone know of any jobs in research?? :) I need it. I need to get there.

Day 4: Sunday, February 8, 2009
Traveling home. Boo. Remember how I said the trip there was easy? Not so much on the way back! The plane we were supposed to leave on had been struck by lightening. Needless to say (although no one was harmed) there were some electrical issues and they didn't want anyone else using that plane. So luckily the airline was able to find us another flight but that didn't put us home in our beds until about 4am on Monday morning. I slept-in until around 2pm :) Don't you just love vacations?

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip. Again... I need to move there...
