Camel riding at the Phoenix zoo

We made it home from a great trip this past week. We got to visit the Grand Canyon, camp in a cute cabin at the KOA, and hang out in Phoenix in the wonderful 90 degree weather. I  It was so nice we decided to stay an extra day. We also visited the zoo, a wild animal park,  and got in some quality pool time. I almost had my head taken off by a swooping owl at the bird show! It’s good to be home, but winter weather is supposed to head back in this week. I’m going to freeze for sure.

I did absolutely no reading of blogs from Tuesday to Saturday evening, so I won’t do a roundup this week, but thanks to these great bloggers who were kind enough to mention me. Please let me know if I missed someone.

    Great Pictures!!!!! Oh 90 degrees would feel like a little piece of heaven. Maybe we should make a blogging campaign against Mother Nature and all these April snow flurries instead of showers.
