Bittersweet Goodbyes – California & the Canyons

Active Teen Tour

A big hello from California and the Canyons,

Lets get you caught up on our last few days leading up to our goodbye’s this AM….

After our Pink Jeep adventure, we rolled into Scottsdale, AZ for a very special last two days together. We were all so impressed and happy with our beautiful hotel. At this point in the trip, we wanted more than anything to just be together and keep the laughter and happiness going right up until our airport farewells.

After we checked in, we took some time to settle in and wash the red Sedona dust off, and then we all met up to head over to Dave and Busters for the evening. We got to enjoy a great group meal together in our own dining room, and then we all headed up to the arcade for an evening of fun and games.

The next morning, we enjoyed a much-needed sleep in before we headed over to the Cheesecake Factory for another fun group meal, after which we enjoyed sampling different cheesecake flavors before heading back to our hotel. In the afternoon, we were all happy to relax together by the pool, in the gym, and in the hotel lounge playing cards and chatting together.

Our last evening was something we will all always remember. Everyone came down to our ballroom looking radiant, and we sat down to enjoy a delicious catered meal. After some moving closing programs and slide shows, we danced the night away as our amazing DJ kept the tunes coming hour after hour.

Saying goodbye this morning was so bittersweet. The friendships we made are so strong, and our memories so special. As hard as it was to hug each other goodbye, we all kept saying to each other how happy we are to have met and had this time together. Thank you to all who made California & the Canyons possible for us to share, and who made it the three weeks of a lifetime.
