Top of the notch accommodations and hospitality at Aunt Suzie and Uncle Mike’s in Scottsdale, AZ. LOVE the big, cozy bed and fruit basket! We arrived Friday night and they took us to see bull riding!
The bulls were far to rowdy and quick to get a good pic.
From roughing it to winos…in Uncle Mike’s impressive wine cellar!
