To wrap up spring break this week, we went to the Desert Museum. The kids love it, and it was really all the beauty of the desert wrapped up in near-80 degree weather. The place is called a museum, but it's more like a local wildlife zoo in a botanical gardens setting. It's a few miles out of the city, surrounded by rolling hills of cacti. The air is desert-quiet and sunny, which is a whole different kind of calm than, say, mountaintop-quiet and breezy.
I didn't do any painting while we were there, but these two did. I told them sometime we'd go back without any younger children in tow and spend the whole time painting and shopping in the gift shop (so grown up!).
