We have been having such a great time out in Phoenix. Christmas was a lot of fun filled with lots of games and way too much Chinese food, a wonderful tradition we started last year. I think this is one of the first times we have been out here and haven't had tons of work keeping us inside. Instead we've been doing lots of fun little things, like driving up one of the near by mountains to take some photos during sunset. 
This is one of my favorite places to go in Phoenix. Not only are the houses near this look out absolutely gorgeous, but the overlook of the valley is simply stunning. On really clear days you can see what seems like everything in the valley. One of the possible downsides of living in a valley is the smog tends to get stuck, until we get some high winds to blow it over the mountains. Lucky it was a pretty clear when we were up there. 
Those clouds were just so insanely beautiful with the sun hitting them!
We got a new camera recently and have been having so much fun messing around with it. I think we might go on a little day trip south tomorrow to really play with it, so if that happens I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of fun pictures coming in the next couple of days, hehe! 

Hope everyone has been having a lovely weekend so far!
