Spring Break in AZ


Spring break goes by so quickly. We have been keeping busy with a trip to the park, swimming in the heated water of the public pool, swimming in the freezing water of our back yard pool, going to the Children's Museum and the week's not over yet.

Brian didn't have to be in to work until afternoon today so we decided to take the kids hiking. We went over to South Mountain. What a beautiful day! 
There were lots of little wild flowers and many of the cacti were flowering too.

Crystal clear blue sky.

Then Brian took us to Jason's Deli for lunch. If you haven't tried this place, you really should. The food is amazing and you get free ice cream!!

On Sunday we took the kids to the Ostrich Festival. This was the first time in 20 years that I partook in the horrendous event to "honor" this large two legged bird. Where else can you get your picture taken as an ostrich, watch jockeys ride ostriches in races and get an ostrich burger in the same place?? The kids did have fun. I got my fill of white trash carnival events for the year.

Oh the Ostrich Festival. It is an indelible mark on my psyche and the first thing that comes to mind when anyone says "street fair." I don't miss it. I'm glad the kids had fun though.
