Life Changing Experiences

Time Flies! – Californian Extravaganza


Californian Extravaganza

During the Extravaganza’s last few days, we’ve explored the Grand Canyon, and have conquered the Arizona terrain during our pink Jeep tour.  We’ve enjoyed the pool and sun at our beautiful hotel in Scottsdale and have spent the last few days with great new friends.

Time truly does fly when you’re having fun.  The journey from Colorado to Arizona has been filled with laughs, excitement, and discovery.  These past 28 days have truly been an experience that none of us will ever forget.  Here is what we have to say about the most amazing summer of our lives:
