Phoenix, the capital of Arizona and the sixth most populous city in the U.S. was much nicer than I expected. First of all, the weather was absolutely perfect. I'm sure that the summers here are quite miserable but March in Phoenix was a warm 80 degrees with just a slight breeze. Everything was green and flowers were blooming everywhere. I was especially impressed with the large traffic-free highways lined with palm trees and bright red plants. Im so used to traveling I-35 to Fort Worth, which is a smoggy parking lot most of the time so it was a pleasant change. The city is also surrounded by mountains which added to the pleasant scenery.
The first day we were here we drove across town and paid a visit to my Great Aunts Sylvia and Doris. It was so nice to see them since its been almost 7 years since I saw Aunt Doris and even longer for Aunt Sylvia
One the third day in Phoenix the girls and I picked up our besties Pam and Kinley at the airport. They will be joining us for the next two weeks of our travels. We were very excited to have them back with us. When you're on vacation its the more the merrier! The rest of the time we spent in Phoenix was spent at the indoor pool and the frozen yogurt shop near our RV park. Yum! I was also finally able to try the In and Out Burger chain that Jason has always told me about. I have to say it was pretty tasty but to me tasted just like Sonic. : ) I think we will definitely have to visit Phoenix again someday and hopefully it will be less than 7 years before I make it back to see my Aunts!
