We had a busy weekend!

On 3/14 I took Nathan to the Desert Museum again.  Once again, he did not want to leave!

On 3/15 we went up to Phoenix and attended the Sox vs Cubs spring training game.  Unfortunately, the Sox clobbered the Cubs.  After the game we went to Portillos for dinner.

The next day, 3/16, we went to the Phoenix Zoo.  After the zoo, Paul and Nathan dropped me off at the Desert Botanical Gardens.  That place often disappoints me.  Only a couple of cacti were blooming and there was not much else to see.  The butterfly exhibit was cool, but not nearly as good as the one at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.  It is expensive to go to the Desert Botanical Gardens, too.  A couple of hours later my boys picked me up and we headed back to the hotel.  We saw McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park so we decided to stop.  We got there just in time for the last train ride.  We will have to go back some time so Nathan can see the model railroads.  That night we ate at Old Town Tortilla Factory.

St Patty's Day we went to another spring training game.  We saw the Angels vs the Padres.  Angels ended up winning.  On the way back to Tucson we stopped at Olive Garden for dinner.  A nice Italian meal to celebrate the Irish holiday!

I can't believe it is March already!

2/28 Nathan and I went to the Desert Museum.  He actually did really well.  I don't think he had remembered going there before.  We walked around the whole place like 2 times because he said he did not want to leave.

March 3rd we took Nathan to the NASCAR race in Phoenix.  We spent the whole day there...he fell asleep at the end!  Then we drove out of our way to go to the new Portillos in Scottsdale.

March 7th I took Nathan to the zoo.  A bad day to go!  It was senior day.  It was very crowded and there were seniors everywhere!

March 9th we took Nathan to Monster Jam here in Tucson.  Once again he fell asleep during it!  He had fun, though.

Well, Friday we are getting ready to go to Phoenix to see some spring training games.  The only downside is that it is supposed to be hot this weekend.  I hope the dogs do well at the new boarding place we are taking them.
