Mini Staycation

So, I can’t say that we’ve ever stayed at a resort before–until this week. Some friends of ours generously gave us a 3 day, 2 night stay at Cibola Vista Resort and Spa in Peoria (northern Phoenix).

We were in much need of a break from our routine. Sad to say, morning sickness/all day sickness has dominated my days this past month. I’m 9 weeks along, so the end of the first trimester is still a few weeks away. However, this nausea can leave sooner and make me an extremely happy mama. Of course, Baby TicTac is worth the discomfort though! Stephen has a very busy two and a half weeks of work coming up, so we were glad for a few days together as a family.

Our studio room was gorgeous and a lot bigger than we had expected! There was a kitchenette complete with dishes and silverware, a balcony overlooking the amazing pool, and even a washer and dryer set in a closet in the bathroom.

Mostly we spent time in the pool, reading, watching a movie, and catching up on sleep while Silas napped. It was great! Tuesday morning, Silas rode a miniature horse. He wasn’t too sure about it, so one lap was enough.

After checking out of our room, we drove up to see Lake Pleasant. It’s a huge man-made lake that attracts a lot of boating.What a relaxing start to our week!
