Kurtis and Jennifer Strauel live just outside Scottsdale, Ariz., with their two children, Taytem and Tommy. The warm desert climate brings tourists, retirees and more permanent residences like the Strauel family, who think it's a great place to raise a family. They've made their home in a new country club development, and as much as they love the desert view, they want a backyard that is as inviting as the inside of their home.
