Wednesday Wanderings: A Layover in Phoenix

I still need to put together a post on our adventures in Arizona, but for now I decided to put together a Wednesday Wanderings post about our first trip to the state. Back in 2012, when we first took Halle to Disney we stopped in Phoenix for one night on our way to Orlando. It was only a short day trip, but we enjoyed our time there and we're glad we made it back to the Grand Canyon State. 

Halle made the relatively short flight easy on us, and we arrived in Phoenix in time to enjoy lunch at the food trucks that they had every Friday.

Halle was always a great little flier - I hope her brother will be the same on his first flight to Florida

Halle happily napped in her stroller while Brett and I enjoyed a variety of tasty food at the food trucks

With food taken care of, we decided to stroll the practically empty streets of the city. Seeing as we were in the desert, it was incredibly hot and people seemed to not be out in the afternoon heat.

Our next stop was at the Diamondbacks Stadium. We headed inside to the restaurant to cool off and get some drinks, and had a view of the field. The team was warming up for a game later that evening, so we enjoyed some cool drinks, while Halle banged on the windows and screamed at the baseball players.

After cooling off completely, we headed back out into the desert heat. After another short walk, we decided to stop for a quick dinner. We figured we'd make it early and have an early night, since we were going to be up early the next day to fly to Orlando. 

We opted to eat at Cooperstown, the restaurant owned by Alice Cooper. We ended up eating with everyone who was headed to that evenings baseball game, so it was a pretty packed house.

The rest of the evening was spent inside of the hotel room. Halle was cranky and Brett ended up with a headache, so it was a very early night. We woke up in time to see the sunrise over the mountains before we rushed off to catch out flight.

We didn't get much time in the desert on this trip. Most of the time was spent driving through the hottest points, but we still loved Arizona. I know this wasn't our last trip to the state.
