you may remember the trip we took to Tucson with State Farm in April, Jason worked, we played, (i learned this is called a "stay-cation" in the biz) - well we were at it again. this time, at one of the most beautiful hotels i have ever seen worldwide, the Royal Palms Resort! our room opened up onto this amazing courtyard with a fountain and plenty of lounging areas, too bad it was only comfortable before 8am and after 9pm.it was in Scottsdale, it was fabulous, and the girls and i had an awesome time, swimming (the pool was tiled in 1" mother of pearl tiles giving the water a luminous quality that i just couldn't quite capture on film), shopping, and overall staying cool. the girls and i had such fun exploring the seemingly endless garden paths, gazebos, lawns, fountains, and even hideouts(this was a "secret" garden we found the girls performed here several times during our stay, and even "found" a kitty cat here).....but this "stay-cation" gave me a novel idea - what if next time we do it without kids???? we'll see, apparently we are some of the crazy few who have never spent a night away together without their children, just haven't had the chance. well, as i will be nursing again soon, we may get crazy next month with a little mommy/daddy stay-cation...stay tuned!
