MDW '14

We had an amazing Memorial Day weekend in the desert with Nana and Papa - it really has become one of my favorite weekends of the whole year ;-)

We hit the road nice and early on Thursday morning (the silver lining to Greyson's insistence on waking up before the sun) so we actually got to Scottsdale with enough time for a leisurely afternoon swim. Our weekend was filled with golf (for Grant), shopping (for moi), excursions to butterfly gardens, train rides and ice cream parlors and lots of relaxing pool time (we BOTH finished books, which is pretty unheard of). The huz and I were able to steal away for a date night at our fave Spotted Donkey Cantina, took the boys to dinner at the club one night and spent the last evening catching up with some extended family.

Hayes riding "Galahad" to bed at night - totally awesome.

Brothers {and Marmaduke} playing with trains...
The Lonewaynger grilling up some Sunday afternoon BBQ...
A dip in the pool for Grey...

We were rested and relaxed when we left Scottsdale yesterday morning. Unfortunately, 9 hours later (2 of which were spent at a standstill in Palm Springs and 7 of which Greyson spent literally shrieking, sobbing and being all around miserable), most of the relaxation had subsided from our bodies but with promises to ourselves that next year we would fly, we redeemed the holiday as best we could with some homemade turkey burgers to end the weekend off right. 


Hope you all had a good one!
