Trip to Phoenix - Big Cats at the Zoo

My favorite part of our trip to the zoo was the Lion, who was looking for the warthogs and the Jaguar, who posed very nicely for us

Trip to Phoenix - The Laydens

The second part of our trip we spent with the Laydens, it was great to see them again!

 We went out to the White Tank mountains to go on hike

 Nate and the kids in back


 The trail was smooth enough to take the stroller, Aurelia was napping the first part

 the kiddos

 It is nice having other people who want to push the stroller

 Saguaro, I also got a hawk or some kid of bird flying above!

 The last part was not for strollers

 A waterfall in the dessert!

Trip to Phoenix - Kent and Cindy

We stayed one night with Nate's Aunt Cindy and Uncle Kent. Aurelia loved all the puppies that were there (I didn't get any pictures). We also went out to an olive mill, it was very interesting, I know a lot more about olive oil now!
