What I did on my Winter Vacation

So I want to tell you all about our vacation to Tucson over the Christmas holiday, but feel like it is a bit lame to be still talking about Christmas on January 11th. So I am going to give you a brief overview. Something similar to what my boys would say if they were asked, "what did you do on your vacation?"

We got to spend a lot of time with Grandma and Auntie Em while mommy worked on a quilt. We played board games, did puzzles, and played with playdough.

We also got to help Auntie Em make cookies for Santa. She let us roll out the dough and cut the cookies and eveything. It was so much fun!

We went to a really cool place called "Winterhaven", but for some reason most of the pictures that my mom took there were a bit blurry or turned out with funny shapes.

Apparently we were having so much fun that our baby sister couldn't take the excitement anymore, so she cuddled up to mommy and fell asleep!

 Christmas was so much fun! Santa brought us exactly what we wanted!

After Christmas we got to do even more fun stuff (besides playing with our new toys). We made a huge hopscotch board on the sidewalk. It went from A to Z!

Then we went to the Saguaro National monument and saw lots of really fun cacti out in the desert. We counted how many arms the saguaros had, and one of them had 15 arms!

Most fun of all was going for a ride on Grandpa's boat! It was warm outside and the boat went really fast. It was the best day ever!

Our Christmas vacation was so much fun. But soon we had to drive all the way home. Being in the van all day long makes me sleepy.

There you have the (very) brief rundown of our two week vacation. Now we are home and things are slowly getting back to normal. At least I finally have Christmas put away!
