Another "Grand" Staycation

This last weekend we spent a few days having a mini "Grand" Staycation at

The Arizona Grand Resort!

With it being close,  well 3 hours away that is, as a family, we have decided to continue making it our yearly Before School Begins Spalsh weekend. Last year we took these smiling faces...

This year we went with our daughter and her family. (Hubby came too, he was changing into his swimsuit but couldn't pass up taking a picture since Buddy was awake.)

Arizona Grand Resort is a "Grand" place for the family!

A trip to the Arizona Grand wouldn't be complete without a trip to Build A Bear...

Then back to the resort for more fun in the sun... 

Bug was the only one tall enough to go down the slides. Even this grandma went down a few times. However, this little Button was an inch short. Every day she wanted remeasured to see if she grew.

 While dad and brother rode the slides, she hung out being one goofy girl.

After an afternoon of sliding, lazy river floating, wave pool splashing it was time to get dress for dinner.

We voted on eatingr at the...

The Kids got to slide down a slide to get to the dining room.
Of course us old foggies took the stairs.
(sorry about these picture, they came from my cell since my batteries died in my camera shortly after arriving)

Other then our dinner taking an hour to get, the evening wasn't all bad. The kids had fun and by the time we left they were bone tired and ready for bed.

Our last day brought a visit by our son. He didn't have his kids with him but it is always great to spend time with him, his love and Little "D".

Once everyone was ready we all went down the lazy river. However, with all of us in the water, no one took any pictures. After we just hung out in the wave pool, play pool and ordered lunch. Bug and I took a few rides down the slide and Little "D" had fun in the kiddie pool area.


It never fails, even though you plan out everything, everyone is in agreement about it, when the times comes, they don't want to leave. Trying to get one last picture, with 3 very tired, but won't admit it kids, and a Buddy not really sure what is happening, this was the best I got.

Driving the 3 hour trip home, well for us that is, Little Buddy was not happy being  in his carseat causing them to stop a number of times, we arrived home just as the sun was setting, bringing an end to our Mini "Grand" Staycataion.
