Today is the official last day of Spring Break for Oldest. I think she had a good week off, although it went rather fast. She had an essay due today and she had all month to do it, she waited until this week to finally sit down and write. She is the biggest procrastinator, when it comes to writing reports. But she can text all day long. Typical 12 year old, I guess.

Wednesday we took the day and drove about an hour and a half up north to go the Heritage Park and Zoological Sanctuary. First time we had been there and we have been in Arizona for 3 years. It was small but had some great animals. We seen an Eagle, a Black Bear, 2 foxes, a porcupine, a tiger, a brown bear that was asleep the first time we walked through, but woke up for lunch. They also have a Mexican Grey Wolf that is Endangered, whom they call Jake. That is what is great about this zoo, each animal had its own story on how it came to live here. Be it injured, abandoned, or a zoo closing. There was also petting zoo with some goats. Oldest went in first and then asked L if she wanted to pet the goats. I was really amazed that she said yes. And she did pet and brushed a white one that was an attention hog. They had Llamas but you weren’t allowed to pet them since they spit. We got some nice pictures to commemorate the day and it only took a couple of hours to walk through. The weather was perfect, only in the high 60’s up there, but when we got home it was a hot 86 degrees. Hubby and I were both worried that Little L was going to be a handful but she was very good. She followed us around and stayed with us the entire time. We were both happy because at the beginning of the week I was threatening to take the zoo trip away because she was a mess and a half for a couple of days. I think the outing did us all some good!

Today we have stayed at home and I did some Spring cleaning for the first day of Spring. Now I have the rest of the afternoon to do nothing, except chase a 2 year old around.

Happy first day of Spring and thanks for reading! 🙂
