So excited to share our stay at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale AZ!
I can’t say enough about our staycation last weekend at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale AZ at Troon North. The kids start school in a few weeks so it was the perfect timing to squeeze in one last little getaway as a family.
This Four Seasons is tucked away right next to a gorgeous desert mountain. Our entire stay, we saw rabbits, geckos vibrant birds and all kinds of other fun wild life.
We spent most of our time hanging by the pool and enjoying the great food at the resort. It was exactly what I needed!
When we arrived, we dropped our bags off at our Casita and scurried over to Proof Restaurant. We had BBQ, hot buttery pretzel buns and so much more. I am going to miss having this restaurant a few steps away
I mean, come on! This was where we spent most of the hours of the day. Heaven.
The bright orange striped lounge stairs made me so happy!
It was so much fun to watch my boys have the time of their lives at the pool.
Seriously some of the best Carne Asada Nachos I’ve ever had were poolside last weekend. We ordered them both days, lol!
I had to try the French Fries They did NOT disappoint.
How fun is this drink?! Tropical fabulousness. Virgin Mai Tai Shared it with the boys.
Sunday before we headed home, we spend the entire afternoon in our own personal cabana with misters, ceiling fans, a TV and even a stocked refrigerator. This was a highlight for the boys….and me
I found this adorable heart ring at the gift shop. Love it!
I have to talk about the breakfast at Proof Restaurant. We went both Saturday and Sunday morning. One of the most delicious breakfast bars that I’ve had. So many fun things to choose from.
My colorful plate! Those chocolate croissants were a dream!
Pax loved running down the sidewalks
Proof restaurant makes their own desserts in house. Homemade ice cream, pies, and these fabulous cookies. We enjoyed a number of treats during our stay!
Saturday night, we enjoyed a dive in movie with the boys. Cars 2 poolside was so much fun.
So grateful for this little family of boys of mine. Grateful for this fun weekend we got to spend together. Lots of memories made that we won’t forget
Disclosure: Four Seasons Scottsdale hosted our stay and some meals, however thoughts and opinions are my own.
I was so excited to explore Arizona over Memorial Day weekend with my family! We took off nice and early and headed to Sedona to the Enchantment Resort. It had been years since I’d been. Just to be clear this is not a sponsored post, just a family weekend getaway I wanted to share with you!
Not even kidding this was the view from our room. I ordered cookies and milk of course and had to snap a picture to remember this gorgeous view.
The boys enjoyed peeking out over the patio wall.
Saturday we walked around downtown Sedona and had to have some ice cream. It was hot as you can see by my poor melting ice cream. Black Cow Ice Cream Shop was great.
Probably my favorite afternoon was just playing at the pool with the family. Gorgeous red rock views and fun times in the pool. My oldest enjoyed the bar where he could order smoothies and charge them to the room
This was an amazing breakfast…Strawberry and caramelized banana waffles. Chi-Ah-Chi is located right at the resort with this view while you dine.
Cullen snapped this photo of the boys and I before dinner one night. Rare to have a picture where everyone is looking and smiling!!
Dinner at Ti Gavo was such a treat. Fresh guacamole and short rib tacos! Cullen got some smoky chicken enchiladas that were some of the best enchiladas I’ve ever had.
One more shot of breakfast right before we left. My gorgeous fruit plate. We took a lovely hike just outside of the resort too. There were deer just hanging out in the grassy areas. A real treat all weekend. I am tempted to go back for my Anniversary later this year. So fun!
Have a great weekend! See you Monday with a new recipe!

You might remember a couple months ago when I wrote about making time for family meal time. I have been trying to make it a goal to sit down together more often during the busy week with my family.
I’d say overall we’ve been doing pretty good. Not perfect by any means, but doing it more often.
One of the things Dr. William Doherty who has studied the importance of family mealtime recommended was to have the kids help clean up after the meal.

I can’t believe that we are already 2 weeks into summer break. I forgot how early AZ schools let the kids out. It’s been great other than my 9 year old told me he was bored the first day of summer break, lol! We are busy busy with swim team, diving and other summer camps for the boys. It’s always a nice break from the usual school routine.

It’s Friday! Time for some chit chat
I’d say I’m a pretty positive person, but I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. My 8 year old came into my room this morning at 2am coughing and I could not for the life of me go back to sleep after I got him back to bed. Is this a “getting older” thing? Why on earth can’t …
