Happy Anniversary To Us!
I still can hardly believe its been a year!
For our anniversary, we went to Sedona, AZ which is about 3 hours from home. We enjoy traveling together, with the dog! When we first got there, we had lunch then just checked things out, stopped at a couple view points to get some pictures! Then it was time to check in at the hotel and relax for a bit!
We had dinner at The Hideaway. It's a nice little Italian restaurant tucked away with a view of the creek and the mountains. It has 2 patios, one of which is pet friendly, so that's where we had our dinner. It was nice... the downstairs patio was so crowded! We practically had our patio all to ourselves!When I was little, Mom used to take my brother and I to this restaurant.
After dinner, we went to Tlaquepaque. I'm not sure what to call it exactly. It's got a lot of art galleries and some shops and restaurants. Everything was closed when we got there, but we walked around outside. There's lots of different trees and sculptures from local artists. Just a lot of neat things to look at. It was just a nice evening with the hubs!
The next morning we went to Red Rock Crossing! That's another place my mom used to take us. I remember catching tadpoles in solo cups there. Clint, Zoey & I just checked it all out and took lots of pictures. We went for a little dip. Surprisingly, the water was pretty cold! We met another couple who were there celebrating their 25th anniversary. They were nice.
Instead of going back the way we came, we took the longer route. We went through Cottonwood, which is a town I lived in ages 4-6. We drove by my old house and the duck pond I remember going to as a little girl. Then we drove through Jerome which is a neat old gold mining town. Then, since we were already going out of our way, we decided to go to Bagdad and visit my sister in law and her family. It was nice to be out of the truck for a while. We stayed for dinner and had fun with the kids! We made it home around 10:30 and it was pretty close to bed time!
All in all we had a FANTASTIC weekend!
A great way to start off our second year of marriage!
Now because I can't quite get the pictures to line up the way I want them throughout the blog, here's a slideshow!
