School is out.
Now what are we going to do with ourselves?
I'm panning for ideas to keep the kids busy but not too busy..ya know. Pinterest already has come in handy. Just this morning we made these..I recommend.
Last year we actually vacated the state of Arizona for a month and a half. We missed such things as haboobs.
This year I want to be flexible and open. In fact we started out our summer with a trip planned to California until we found out it was only going to be 61 degrees on the shoreline. We passed and opted to stay a mere two hours away in a place called Tucson, AZ. I had pre conceived notions about the town and never thought of it as a vacation destination. It turns out that there continues to be beauty in just about every place on this earth. We visited the Desert Museum, which happens to be the second most visited tourist place (behind the Grand Canyon) in Arizona. The drive takes you through part of the Saguaro National Forest..which is a very unique sight to behold. Then we ventured down to the San Xaiver Mission...another unique sight. So strange to think that the place has been there sitting in the middle of no where desert since the 1700's. It was a great cultural experience. Did you know that back in the day people purposely did not completely finish buildings to avoid paying taxes? If you look at the top building you will notice that one side of the mission is missing the top piece.
What do you have planned this summer? I need as many ideas as possible.
