Mother’s Weekend!

IMO, there’s nothing more important in the world than spending time with family. My mom was gracious enough to fly across the country to help me christen my new house. She flew in on Thursday evening and we spent the first night at Chris Bianco’s Tratto – and it’s worth the hype. Took off work on Friday and took mom on a wonderful day trip on the Verde Canyon Railroad. A four hour journey through some of the world’s most majestic red rocks. A solid 2 hours north of Phoenix, this trip is worth every penny. A decent beer selection too. 
Friday night – had dinner for restaurant week at Culinary Dropout, but should have went somewhere better. Got up early on Saturday and went to the Ziprecruiter office to show off the new digs, then rented bikes and rode along the Tempe Town Lake. She hadn’t ridden in over 20 years, but it was “just like riding a bike.” Sat night went to a Snakes game – one of the last of the regular season en route to the playoffs. Mom had to get her popcorn in a plastic helmet, and then she had to wear the helmet. Left Sunday and it felt too soon. Trying to get her to come here permanently!
