Bowdens Go West: Phoenix

First stop on our journey was a visit to my Uncle Joe and Aunt Delene's house. They've lived in Arizona for about six years, but I had not yet made it out to see them. I'm so glad we finally did. We had a great time catching up with them, and my cousins Eliana and Luke (who seem to grow at an alarming rate! Or am I just getting old?) They graciously opened up their beautiful home, and showed us around city a bit. It was a wonderful place to start our trip- made even better by some wonderful people to share it with (and ok, some wonderful food too! You'll see that theme develop soon enough).
Here's the rest of the scoop.....

  1. Is that your Aunt and Uncle's house???? Gorgeous! Love the whole Old West theme and the diner and the pink and the cupcake menu and the box! Love it all! Can't wait to see more!

  2. What a cute idea! Your positivity and happiness is really great for the bad attitude I've developed. Thank you. :)

  3. I can't wait to see more either! Great pics (too bad none of Delene and Eliana), looks like the Arizona Stegmayers started your vacation off well.

  5. Phoenix was a great plpace to start! We had so much fun with your family. It's hard to believe that the scenery got even better as we went on! Readers...stay tuned!
