"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"

Lyle and I had the opportunity Friday night and Saturday to stay at the Scottsdale Camelback Resort with friends.

Main room, kitchen, and other side of main room
Awesome tub, Rich glasses among other things
We made breakfast for our friends!
master bedroom

We were able to go swimming, dry off by the fireplace-poolside, relax on the patio, watch TV, participate in water aerobics, play dunking and volleyball, and eat at Olive Garden (which I have been craving pasta for a long time!! and it was heavenly!)

The funny part is that our friends told us to take to spare bedroom (before they knew) and it turned out that the spareroom comprised of two twin sized beds. It was pretty funny since Lyle had been complaining about my snoring and saying that we should go back to twin sized beds...well here's your chance!)

Lastly, this was the view from our patio:

Just kidding, it was too good to be true, but not that too good! :)

OH! I was camera happy and these are some views I caught that were interesting:
We had such a great time and actually think that this would be a good idea for a family reunion since the prices of resorts go down in phoenix due to the hot weather...so they're very affordable and offer many ways to stay cool! The places were stocked with all the supplies needed in the kitchen and bathrooms and packed with so much fun!! Some ammenities:
Racketball courts
croquet fields
horseshoe pits
tennis courts
nearby shopping
daily activites
so much more...
Thanks again for a great weekend, friends!

That sounds like so much fun! Maybe Blaine and I will have to take an anniversary trip there when he gets back.
