Colossal Cave

Yesterday, we spent a fun day at Colossal Cave Mountain Park in Vail--which is just outside Tucson. We enjoyed a cave tour and picnic. Then we headed to the ranch in the park. There was a Butterfly Garden, a few museums, gift shop and ice cream place. K had a "Discovery Tour" sheet which had him visit sites all over the park and then mark that he'd been there. Once the sheet was full he could go to the gift shop for a treasure! He had lots of fun doing the tour and got some beautiful gems for his treasure!
The weather was sunny and very warm so we had a wonderful time in the sun! This was the second place we have been able to visit because of Mike's class! They gave us money to visit all the fun places in Tucson! We are loving this gift!! On Monday we are going to the Air & Space Museum! That should be fun too!

Here we are! (We actually took the photo on the way out.)

I like how K is riding the cowboy. :) Cute family pic, too!

I was wondering about you guys going to all these places recently. What a neat gift for Mike's class to give him!

And nice new look on this blog, too!
