In May we surprised the kids with a trip to Phoenix. It was SO much fun and their expressions were priceless! We packed up the night before and that day just drove to pick up Dallin's brother (who drove us there) and then headed to the airport. The kids did not even think twice and were busy in their own worlds when we arrived at the airport. Dallin turned around and asked them if they knew where we were and why we were there. When they finally figured out it was US going and not Chris they were astonished to say the least! They got so excited and the next few hours were a whirlwind of excitement.
The trip was fabulous and hot and relaxing and .... we got sick :( Of all the times in our lives to get food poisoning, this was not ideal. That being said, the rest of the trip was wonderful and we had a great week just being together. We can't wait to go back again soon and the kids will definitely be paying closer attention the next time we go to the airport!
