Today laying out in 77 degree weather by the pool I am wondering why we live in North Dakota. Yes I love the seasons, but winter that seems to last forever just weighs on you after awhile. Since we have been here we have be relaxing and enjoying the warm sun. Yesterday we spent 8 hours at the Phoenix Zoo, which the kids loved. I would recommend it to anyone.....The kids had a blast seeing all the interesting animals, some we have NEVER seen in ND and MN. We raced paddle boats and watched monkey's inches away from our face. I have never been in a monkey cage before! VERY COOL! Went to an animal talk which we learned a lot about Owls, Tortoises and a Tree Frogs. Even heard on the news today that one of the giraffes had a baby yesterday, we must have missed it! The kids had so much fun they got up this morning and wanted to go back.....it will be on our to do list for next year!
Today was more of a restful day as we shopped a little, hung out at the pool, went roller blading and tonight are dining with friends. We hope to make another return to the spot (Westgate) where the super bowl took place as we went last year as everything was being built. Ashton enjoyed dancing in the streets that had water that set to the music, needless to say she left soaking wet....we hope to make another return as the weather is beautiful and we will be prepared! I get to do some shopping while the kids have fun.....
I thought it would be fun to update everyone on the happenings in Arizona. Hope everyone is having fun Stamping and creating wonderful things....can't wait to catch up with you when I return.
