Raising Arizona kids has been so much fun! As a mother, raising our kids in Arizona has been a HUGE blessing. We live in Ahwatukee, a suburb of Phoenix. There’s so much to say about the Ahwatukee, including the community, the wonderful schools, the outdoor living and serene lifestyle that have enriched our children’s lives and experiences. Really, there are too many to name. There are other great areas in Phoenix to live, other than Ahwatukee, like Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Paradise Valley, just to name a few.
Mother’s Day is a special time of year, even though every day is really Mother’s Day for me. I feel so blessed to have my two amazing daughters, three step-children and my husband. It brings me to reminisce and flip through my photos of my kids enjoying Arizona life that I just had to share.
My husband and his children moved to Arizona around eight years ago from England to enjoy the year-round sunshine and the outdoor lifestyle that wasn’t so easy to find over there. I moved to Arizona over 20 years ago from California and still think it is the best decision I could have made for myself and for my children. I can’t tell you how many times we have said, “It’s so beautiful here. We are so lucky to live here.”
Here are just a handful of photos of our children enjoying Phoenix life to the fullest, and I think they’ll resonate with you too! Of course, these are just a handful of them. There are so many other great memories we’ve created during our time in Phoenix.
If you are considering a move, I’d be happy to chat with you about family life and what it’s like raising kids in Phoenix. You can call me anytime at 480-313-7090.
