Before Thanksgiving

Well now that we're all back from Christmas vacation and it's the new year it's time to play some blogging catch-up.  Going through my pictures I realized there were still a couple of events I forgot to blog about.  Nate had the week before Thanksgiving off from school so we did a few things around Phoenix before heading over to Las Vegas.  Erin came to visit and we went to the zoo with her and Brooke one morning. Always a good time :)

 Sawyer finally got up the courage to touch the sting-rays.  We were all pretty excited about it!

 Another morning we got culture passes to the Arizona Museum of Natural History.  Sawyer was so excited about the dinosaurs!  

A little unsure of the 'flash flood'
They had a little children's 'discovery' room with lots of educational games and things for the kids.  I think that was Sawyer's favorite part of the day.  In fact he threw a pretty awesome tantrum when it was time to leave. :/

An old 'settler's jail' at the museum

Me too! I'm just playing blog readers catch up!!
And that in the middle of the night, but that's when it's nice and quiet, right?
I love that you take the opportunity to take the kids to fun places like that!! I know it always takes such an effort, but it's worth it in the end!! Cute pictures!
