A Family First Staycation

With Spencer leaving for college we wanted to do one last getaway with the family.  We were supposed to go to Zion’s to do the Narrows but with Cameron’s ankle injury we had to change plans.  We didn’t want to drive 8 hours to California so I decided I would find a resort close by and we would go there for our Labor Day Weekend Get-a-way. 

We went to the Arizona Grand Resort and spent 3 days there.  They had a huge water park that I thought the kids would enjoy.  We started the weekend off by eating up at Rustler’s Roost Steakhouse and then enjoyed a movie out by the pool.  On Saturday we just relaxed, ate, the boys worked out in the gym and Taylor and I hung out at the water park.  On Sunday we slept in, ate and headed home.  The best part was the 20-minute drive home to our house. 
Even though we did not do much that weekend we were together as a family so our mission was accomplished.  So for our first Staycation I feel it was a great success.
