• Scottsdale/Phoenix Trip Recap

    Last week we spent a long weekend in Scottsdale and Phoenix for our 5 year anniversary.  We have been to Scottsdale once before in late July and we loved it then.  So this time we decided to come a little earlier to avoid the hot summer heat and be able to enjoy getting out more.
