Girls day out at the Aji Spa. Aaaaaah

I'm on vaca with the entire Poling clan in Phoenix. We're here celebrating my mom's birthday. Won't say which one, cuz she would kill me. She has the whole family here - all kids and grand kids, at the Legacy Resort in Phoenix. There are 17 of us - we're having a blast.

Yesterday all the grown-up girls treated mom, and ourselves of course, to a day at the spa. We picked the Aji Spa at the Sheraton Wildhorse Pass Resort. It's just a few miles down the road from where we're staying. It's gorgeous and peaceful. And wouldn't you know it - all treatments are half price on Tuesday! Woo hoo!

I'm not sure the Spa was quite ready for the Poling group. We're not exactly the quietest bunch. We had a great afternoon. We started with a lovely lunch in their cafe - which is where the laughter started. The chairs at the tables were made for people 6' tall so when my sister-in-law sat down her chin came up to the tables edge!

The food was awesome. Four of us had a salad with lump crab, watermelon, and a spicy chipotle dressing. My sister had a really yummy flatbread pizza and mom had a portobello wrap sandwich with the spicy chipotle dressing. All the food was very gourmet. And very delish.

We then moved to the pool. There wasn't a soul out there. So of course my mom, sister and I got to chatting. There was a grass hut on the edge of the pool. We we were curious what it was for, so we're asking each other, "Is it for massages", "Is is some sort of Indian thing?" Then a woman (guest) appears out of nowhere and says in a very quiet and serious voice, "It's a meditation hut." Oh. Guess we better hush up!

From there we got pedicures, relaxed in the lounge and shopped in the boutique. It was a really fun afternoon.

Today, we're off to a water park with the kids. It will be 114 degrees this afternoon. Holy schnikes.

Not exactly the Aji Spa.
