I was there for about 3 weeks as well, and LOVED it!!! This was my first time back in Arizona in 10 years. I was last there for Thanksgiving in '97, and before that the last time I was there was when my family moved away from Mesa (to the Pacific Northwest), in the summer of 1990. So to say the least the city of Phoenix and it's surrounding area had CHANGED!!!!
The city has literally burst at the seems and when viewed from high above, reaches the horizon in every direction. There are now highways on top of highways. When I lived there in the '80s there was pretty much just 2 highway, I-10 & I-60. But now along with those there is 101, 202, 85, 51, yadda yadda yadda. It's just simply incredible to me how much the city has changed, and I would say for the better.
Anyways, I had a great time down there with my parents. This was the longest amount of time I had been able to spend with them since I moved away to Orlando, 5 years ago. Plus while I was there my sister and her family came down, for a visit after the holidays, so it was fantastic to spend even more time with them as well.
