A Springtime Break 2

Days 1-4

Day 4 (cont): Saguaro National Park

Our last full day in Tucson, we took a curvy road which led out to Saguaro National Park. Again we were all impressed at the huge height of the cacti which seemed to stand like thousands of soldiers covering every mountain and plain around us.

We arrived just as the sun was setting and it was absolutely beautiful!


 Day 5: Reid Park Zoo, Tucson

Before heading to the airport that afternoon, we were all so excited about our planned trip to the zoo. J is very much an animal fan and we haven't had a chance to go to the zoo since he was a baby. 

We showed up first thing in the morning and were amazed to see so many animals out and about. J was in absolute heaven and couldn't stop giggling to himself. He loved talking to all the animals and trying to get them to come closer. 

We also paid for the three of us to get up close and personal with the giraffes and feed them carrots sticks! This was the best part, up until J's turn when he just threw his carrots at the giraffe's face. Thankfully Joseph saved the day and offered his carrots for J to try again. Weeks later and J is still talking about it! Making memories, check!

(I love that J has his tongue out in this picture, maybe he wants a carrot too!)

Flying home to Las Vegas from Tucson, we had a two hour layover in our favorite San Diego. And of course Joseph knew that the water was only a 10-minute walk from the airport. 

Best way to end a vacation ever! We enjoyed the warm, salty breeze while counting cruise ships and eating more ice cream. 

As soon as we got on the plane, J fell into a nice ice-cream induced nap and slept until we arrived in Las Vegas. All was perfect until J realized that he slept through the flight and wanted to go again.

Oh so good to be home!
