Spring Break Tucson Style

What a blessed spring break trip to Tucson we had ~ with my inlaws and Tim's brother Byrne and his family! We spent lots of time in the pool...went to the zoo, Old Tucson and Saguaro National Park. I got to have a girl's day out with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law (more on that in tomorrow's post). We ate lots of great Mexican food!

Emma and Nate having fun with Grandma & Grandpa in the motorhome on the way there.

We took a picture by this cactus last year and affectionately named him Mr. Droopy Arms. It was fun to go back and get another picture and see how he had changed. Sadly, one of his arms had broken off.

Lots and lots of time in the pool.

We love the Reid Park Zoo. Among my favorite animals are the anteaters, white rhino and polar bear!

Old Tucson is such a cool place! They have filmed tons of movies here over the years. The history is really neat, the shows are fun, but the kids loved the rides the most.

One night after swimming, we had a fire and roasted marshmallows. Tim played his Djembe and we sang songs. Really cool night!

This is the whole gang!
