Our Arizona/California Trip: Days 5-7

Sorry it's been a few days since I posted about our trip. I've been busy and hadn't had a chance to edit pictures. This post will wrap up our trip. If you missed the previous posts, you can check them out here

After getting back to Phoenix late Saturday night, we got up Sunday morning and went to the Phoenix Open golf tournament. I had never been to a golf tournament before, so it was fun to experience it. Tiger Woods and Phil Michelson were already out of the tournament by Sunday, so we didn't get to see them, so that was a little disappointing, but we had fun anyways. Unlike any other tournament, the Phoenix Open has a hole, (hole 16) where there are bleachers and you can sit and watch the players on this hole. What makes it unique is that you can yell and be loud, cheer and boo the players. It was where we spent a majority of our time there. 

After a few hours at the tournament, we headed back to Jim's house for the rest of the day. I had some face-time fun with my Mom, Dad and Avery and we spent some time out on the patio!

We also watched the Super Bowl that evening and Jim made some yummy pasta.

Monday was spent just relaxing and hanging out in the back yard again! His back yard and patio are so great! Monday evening, some friends of Jim's came over for dinner and he made BBQ hamburgers and home-made fries! He and Jackson also juiced the grapefruits they had picked a few days prior and Jim made us some martinis with the juice!

Tuesday was the last full day of our trip, so we decided to go back to the Japanese Garden that we had visited the year before because it was so beautiful there. They have a big koi pond there and they sell fish food. So we always buy some and feed the fish, but what's funny is that there are always pigeons there and they will land right on you and eat the fish food right out of your hand! It was hilarious the first time it happened to us last year. So again, we fed the pigeons right out of our hands.

And because I love a comparison, here are our family pictures at the garden in the same spot from last year when I was pregnant with Avery and this year. :-)

Early Wednesday morning, we flew back to the cold and snow in St. Louis. Yuck! We had such a great trip though and look forward to going back!!
