Did you miss them? My year in review:
What a few days it’s been! I got back from Arizona lat night with my mom and brothers and couldn’t have asked for a better three-day trip!
My brothers spent most of the car ride doing this:
They say they’re catching up on lost sleep from college…um, they got out of school almost TWO WEEKS AGO. Crazy boys…gotta love em’!
Anyhow, I finally got to see some of my cousins that I rarely get to see since they live in Arizona…thought my cousin Josh plays semi-pro baseball in Florida, where I am half the time anyhow!
We almost has all my cousins together from my Mom’s side of the family…we were only missing one of my cousins, Chris. So close…so close.
We arrived on Monday evening and left Wednesday mid-day, in which everyday was jam packed! But Tuesday was exciting since I got to see Jenn! I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this girl is one of the best around. We first met each other last January (along with Heather and Gina) when I was in Arizona going out to Florida for work and throughout the year we have talked so much via phone, texting, gchat and video chat…it was so good to see her in person again!
She took me to this great place called First Watch in Scottsdale, and we both settled on the Tri-athlete Omelette which was made of egg whites and veggies with a side of salsa, fruit and a dry English muffin.
I can’t wait to see Jenn again in 2010! So much excitement in the year to come for the both of us!
They’re known for using vegetables and fruits that grows right there in their backyard and using the freshest and most natural ingredients they can use. They provide very common items on their menu like burgers, fries, hot dogs and chili, but they also have other great things like what I got for dinner:
Grilled Portobello Mushroom Farm Fresh Salad
And I shared the side of Sweet Potato Fries my brothers subbed out with the regular fries their meal came with.
To end out the meal we had their Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Split Sandwich that was filled w/ pb, strawberries, bananas, pineapples and chocolate chips. It sounded good, but wasn’t the greatest. I shared it with my brothers, and ended up just digging out the pb insides, leaving the bread behind (it was covered/swimming in butter. eh).
I think one of the exciting parts of the restaurant though was the bathroom. It was unisex, so it had a urinal, but the funny part was the TV above it.
After we finished dinner we had our Christmas with my Mom’s side of the family, in our hotel rooms:
The kids taking pictures of the parents:
Hahaha…I thought it was pretty funny.
And I couldn’t resist showing you my cute cousin:
It was a great vacation with the family! Stay tuned for my New Years Resolutions today or tomorrow!
Happy New Years Everyone!!!!
