We had the privilege of taking a trip down to AZ for thanksgiving this week; we had a great time seeing our family and friends. 

It was so fun taking Landon back home and letting him meet so many people and taking him to some fun places.

Here are some highlights:

At the airport. Landon woke up with a fever the morning we were supposed to leave. Nate took him to the pediatrician at 5am and we were still able to make our morning flight! 
Poor buddy :(

Both boys crashed at the terminal because of Landers having a rough (sick) night and morning.

Despite being sick, he was perfect on the plane. Not a single cry.
It made us so sad though to see him so miserable and helpless.

A stop at Paletas Betty.
Because of the parking on Mill Ave, we dropped Nate off to grab a few and we picked him back up.
When he got back in the car we learned he bought one of every flavor! 
So we sat in the car, driving back home, and passing around these 13 popsicles taking a bite of each.
My favorite was the pecan one...

We had to have dinner at Ra, I was craving their Volcano Roll!
No one else does the volcano like them.

We got to see my best friend from 4th grade. I have missed her so much, we haven't talked for years!

At the airport, on our way home, I noticed they built a La Grande Orange inside. It is a restaurant that I love in Phoenix so I was so excited to see one there! Nate ended up surprising me with pistachio gelato from there while we waited to board :)

The whole trip was wonderful, I saw tons of people and got to introduce Landon to them. Being with my family was great and I miss them dearly already!
