We said good bye to beautiful Sedona and drove to Chandler, Arizona, to spend a week with my Uncle Mike, Aunt Erica, and cousins, Victoria and Samantha. Spending time with these guys was great! They have a beautiful home and we felt so welcomed there… like part of the family! Their gorgeous great dane, Oreo, was a gigantic but oh-so-sweet companion during our stay, and their extremely cute dachshunds, Clifford and Max, aka “Blind and Toothless”, were adorable. The week moved at a slower place which is exactly what we needed. Victoria had her high school’s homecoming football game and dance on, so we went along to the football game to get a taste of high school sports which, I can safely say, are on a completely different level from Aussie high school sports. We also checked out the desert botanical gardens. We hiked, we saw a movie, we ate and we talked. It’s such a shame that we live so far away because we enjoyed hanging out so much, but we felt really fortunate to share a week in the life of the Schifsky clan.
Obviously a serious conversation about wigs.

Samantha’s got a good arm and a good aim.

Bas Pro Shops- the most insane store I’ve ever been in.
