Arizona for the Holidays

I know that the holidays are over... but I wanted to share photos and fun moments from my trip to Arizona with my family.

Road Trip!!!!!! Arizona is only 5 hours away from San Diego, so we drove there. Well.. I chilled in the back seat while my parents drove. I had worked pretty hard that week, so I was exhausted!!!

During Christmas week my mom's brothers and sisters, her Mom and their families along my whole family we all spent the holiday together in a house that we rented in the Scottsdale area. My mom used homeway.com and we decided as a family where we wanted to stay, and the house that we picked was AMAZING!!!! The photos didn't even do the place justice. It looked way better in person and there was plenty of room for everyone. We had about 20 people in the house at one time and it didn't even feel like it. 

Here's a peek of what the house looked like.

I did a whole house tour in my holiday vlog and you can see all of the rooms in more detail.

There are 2 parts to this vlog. You can check them both out on my youtube channel.

My Family and I stayed in Arizona for a week. We had Christmas dinner, explored the city and took a trip to The Grand Canyon (which is about 3 hours away from the Scottsdale area).

There are 2 different main sides to state park and we explored the south rim. It was pretty cold out, so I'm glad that I bought layers to bundle up in. There was a little snow on the ground!! That's how cold it was.

We went to go check out the Cardinal's stadium and had brunch at the Cracker Barrel, which was really good!! The French toast was amazing!! For those who have never heard of the Cracker Barrel or have never been there. It is a store and restaurant all in one. They have different little trinkets, old school candy and souvenirs. It's pretty cute and very cozy. There was a fire place with the fire lit in the middle of the dining area.

 How cute is this Syrup!!!!
