Scottsdale Vacation Day 7

Yesterday was our last full day of vacation.  We spent the morning at the Phoenix Zoo.  It was hot but we had a good time.  I love watching the girls play nicely together, they really enjoyed petting the goats, and we all liked seeing the baby ape playing with a cardboard box.
When we got back to the hotel we ate a quick lunch and then headed to the pool for a few hours!  Shyla had fun with Ivy and Harper ended up falling asleep in my arms and had to be carried back to the room.

Finally, to complete the evening, we decided to utilize a special going on at the hotel: if you dine at Deseo (a fancy-schmancy restaurant in the hotel), children can attend the Kid's Club Pajama Party for free (usually $50/child) and for being owners at the Villas we got 20% off our bill.  We dropped the girls off at 5:30pm and our reservation was for 6:00pm.  Shyla, again, was hesitant walking toward the Kid's Club but once we arrived she was ecstatic to see all the games and fun things to do.  Our meal was delicious and fancy and way too much food!  

After dinner we picked out 2 desserts (chocolate peanut butter pie and a chocolate covered strawberry), a cup of coffee, and enjoyed them on the beautiful patio overlooking the golf course while live music played.  It was glorious!

At about 8:15pm we went to pick up the girls who were now in the OK Corral.  They had made smores (2 each!) and were playing with the teacher and 2 other kids.  They were having a blast and we basically ruined their night by picking them up.  I suppose that's a sign of a good night and a fun day!
