A Weekend in Tucson

A few weeks ago, my mother-in-law texted me letting me know that she would be in the Tucson area for an upcoming wedding, and I just knew we had to jump on the chance to see her.  I had never been to Tucson, and who am I to pass up a little road trip?  David was actually up in Portland for the weekend, and as much as my girls can be super independent, I really didn't want to do that road trip solo.  Enter:  Nana and Poppy!  All I had to do was plant a little seed in their heads, and BOOM, there we all were road trippin' down to Tucson.

When I told friends that we were going to Tucson, they were sort of like, "Ooohhhhh.  Well, have fun?"  I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but now I sort of get it.  Aside from the cute little zoo that we LOVED, there's not a lot to go on and on about.  Okay, campus looked sort of cute too, but trying to eat dinner there on a game night with two little kids.  Nope.  So, maybe in a few years we can go down again and explore that.  

Anyway, back to the zoo.  Seriously so cute.  It was easy to walk around and there were so many of the animals visible.

The girls wanted to swim at the hotel, and so of course Olivia had to dress up her doll!  Loved how they were matching.  I promise I did not plan that!  





On Sunday, we had a great time visiting with Irma and her sister.  The girls did a great job walking around some little shops {and by great, I mean they didn't break anything} while we all visited.  

And, you know no road trip is complete without a trip to Cracker Barrel!

It was a fun trip . Glad we were able to go. I agree the zoo was really neat. I want to go back and explore the quaint shops some more!!

We had a fun time with you girls and grandma Irma this weekend. I had a great time with the girls in the pool/hot tub as well. Loved downtown Tucson.
