This past Saturday, we went on our last "vacation" as a family of 3. As of Sunday, I can no longer travel. We decided just to go down to Tucson for the day and take Haylee to the Reid Park Zoo.

It was such a fun zoo. All of the animals were out and up close, it was a small zoo so I could walk the whole thing twice and feel fine, and they had polar bears. I loved the polar bears!

We got to feed the giraffes which is always fun, and even enjoyed lying on a blanket in the grass while Haylee ran around tiring herself out.

Haylee got to touch a hedgehog which was hilarious because when she touched him (with her entire hand, not just a finger) the hedgehog jumped and Haylee jumped too.

She also got to touch 2 different snakes which will forever change her life. Ok, not really but when it was time to pick something out at the gift shop guess what she picked? And what does she take a bath with and play with all the time? Yep, snakes! The first night she even wanted to sleep with them but changed her mind and had Josh put them in her closet before he left her room. However, after he left she found one on her bed and threw it on the ground. She is such a crack up!

After the zoo, we went to Reid Park where Haylee went down the slide a million times, a couple times with "no hands" and then we fed the ducks.

After dinner, and a little shopping we headed home. It was a fun day but we were all exhausted by the time we got to bed!
