Arizona Day 1

We had a busy first day in the desert.

After coffee and eggs on the patio, we cleaned ourselves up and headed out for today’s adventure.

First stop: The Desert Botanical Gardens. I forced my big brother to stop and pose for a pic before we entered:

It was beautiful. I never knew there were so many varieties of cacti and desert flora. I loved the contemplation sensory garden…

…but my favorite was the Butterfly exhibit. Is anyone surprised that this was my favorite butterfly?

After this, we headed across the road to the Phoenix Zoo.  I tried to hide among the colorful bear figures at the entrance:

Once in the gates, the first stop was, of course, the giraffe exhibit:

We made our way around, seeing all of the animals, but lingering at my other favorites: elephants, turtles and camels.

This is me proving that I can balance with the grace of a crane:

And this is me doing my best impersonation of a turtle:

Then we spent some time at the petting Zoo with Jeffrey’s favorite animals, the goats. It was so great to watch him petting and brushing the goats:

I got some goat TLC in, too:

After the zoo, we hit some local comic shops, then headed to IKEA before having sushi for dinner and heading home to watch Wonder Woman (2nd time for me and Jeffrey, 1st time for my brother.)

It was a great day.

    Great stuff, S/b.
    In final pic that handsome little fella looks so intelligent, yet with a cunning behind those twinkly eyes. I just want to tickle it under its chin – and then do the same with the goat.
    Glorious!
