Blowin' This Joint

I complain a lot about the hot weather here in Arizona. However, one of the things I do like about living here is that nine months out of the year you can comfortably swim in an outdoor pool. My husband, the kids, and I will often rent a room at a resort here in town or travel two hours north to Phoenix and stay in a resort there and spend a few days relaxing by the pool, ordering room service, and otherwise just enjoying our time together.

So, this coming Friday we are heading to Phoenix to spend three days doing just that. We got an incredible deal at a gorgeous resort and plan to spend the time swimming, getting massages, eating well, and hopefully catching up on some sleep. The kids are incredibly excited...our daughter especially, loves to stay at resorts and I am glad that we can get out of town for a few days together and just have fun.

What are some of your favorite things to do with your family during the summer?

I like how you take an issue like the heat and turn it positive, making great family time from it. We enjoy our home, and our deck, garden and yard are our oasis, but every summer we also spend time at a cottage at a beach on Long Island Sound and do exactly what you will do next week - stop routine life and just relax and "be" in the moment, at the sea, together. Enjoy your weekend!
