Sunday my friends, Liberty and Becky, and I traveled to Phoenix for a few days of fun. Liberty's parents let us stay in one of their rental homes that wasn't rented at the moment. A completely empty rental home, I might add. So we packed up the cars with blankets, air mattresses, sleeping bags, food, clothes, and kids and headed that way after church. We made a stop at Makutu's island where the kids proceeded to have a complete blast. After almost every kid had a slide burn on some body part they decided it was time to go. The night was filled with fun and games and laughter.
Monday the mommies got their fix by heading to IKEA and the mall. The kids had fun, too at the wonderful play area in IKEA and at the book store at the mall. After another fast food meal we headed back to the house for more fun and games.
The trip was like camping out without the bugs, the weather, or other outdoor elements to deal with. The best part of all was we all had a blast spending time with good friends.
