Arizona State Capitol Museum Spring Break 2016

For part of our Spring Break 2016, we toured the Arizona State Capitol Museum.  This place was amazing.  Four floors of Arizona history in an old building.  What's not to love?  Kids weren't as excited, but we managed.  Wesley Bolin Plaza was pretty neat as well with all the memorials.

A little rough-housing never hurt anyone.

Sofia taking Jacob down.

We met our cousin Ben and his family at Riverview Park.  They were in the valley for a few days vacation.

Jacob getting an echocardiogram.  His pediatrician thought she heard a murmur.  Short story, there was a strange sound found by the EKG and the cardiologist heard something slightly unusual, but wasn't a murmur.  The echocardiogram showed a perfectly normal working heart.  Phew. 

Jacob and his sister Naomi.  She comes over to visit every once in a while and these kids gobble her up.

Road Trip 2016. 2-27-16

First stop, Queen Mine Tour in Bisbee Arizona.  We took a tour of an old copper mine.  Fun to don the clothes, ride a train, and learn the history from former copper miners. 

Second stop:  Bisbee.  Fun to explore this quirky city, tucked onto a hillside.  

3rd stop:  Tombstone.  We had fun walking the streets of historic Tombstone.  

4th stop:  Boothill Graveyard, Tombstone.  

5th stop:  San Xavier del Bac.  Beautiful old Catholic church just south of Tucson.  I love this building.  Have been before.  Love the history, the beautiful bright white building and the details inside.
