We met up with Neil's cousins Julie and Chelsea for lunch at Costa Vida. Cafe Rio knockoff, but still sooo good.
Julie is an AMAZING person who founded a non-profit, Rescue A Million, to save children and the environment!
Chelsea is an awesome singer at her parents' cowboy dinner theatre and is about to leave on a Mormon mission to Florianopolis, Brazil! We'll practically be neighbors (don't think I'm not already plotting how to swing up there to see her!).
For dinner we met up with a couple of Neil's childhood friends and their families at San Tan Flat.
We had tried to do dinner there on a weekend night right after we got to AZ, but it was completely packed with a mix of leather-clad bikers and Midwestern snowbirds. There was a 2-hr. wait for a table that night, so we bounced.
This time we went on a weekday so we got right in. We were early (!!!) for once in our lives, so we took some pictures of the place till everyone arrived.
