On 4/2, I went to the Reid Park Zoo, the Reid Park Rose Garden and the Tucson Botanical Gardens.

On 4/9, I went to the Desert Museum.

On 4/10, I stopped by Nortwest Self Storage and took pictures of their night blooming cacti.  Then I took Nathan to Arthur Pack Park.  They are working on the park, but he was still able to ride his big wheel on the sidewalk.

Took more pictures of the night blooming cacti at Northwest Self Storage on 4/11.  That night we took Nathan to Spring Fling at U of A.  Some of the kiddie rides were too fast for Nathan, but he liked the ones where he got to climb and go down slides.  He also really liked the bumper cars!

We went to the Thunderbirds Air Show on 4/12.  Unfortunately, it was too windy for the Thunderbirds to fly that day.

We went to Tombstone on 4/13 for their Rose Festival.  I wanted to see their rose tree in full bloom.  It was sort of a let down.  But, we took an old time photo of us and Nathan got to shoot a gun with paint pellets.  On the way home, we stopped at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base to see the Thunderbirds since they were unable to perform the day before.

On 4/16, I went to Reid Park Zoo, Reid Park Rose Garden, Tucson Botanical Gardens and Fort Lowell Park.  Got to see a vermilion flycatcher at Fort Lowell Park so that was pretty cool.  Unfortunately, I also got a ticket that day for failure to stop for a school bus.  It was on Oracle which is a very busy street, almost like a highway.  I did not expect a school bus to stop on that street and it was in the far right lane while I was in the far left lane getting ready to turn on a side road.  I did not see it in time to stop.  Now I am going to take traffic school to get it off my record.

Nathan and I colored Easter eggs on 4/18 and we took him to see the Easter Bunny.

We took Nathan to the Children's Museum for their Easter egg hunt on 4/19.  It was a little cheesy because it was really crowded and each child only got 4 eggs.

The Easter Bunny spoiled Nathan again this year.  He got sand toys, coloring books, candy, several Disney planes, a Scooby Doo monster truck, Connor the train and a lot of cars (Herbie the love bug, two color shifters, #4 Kevin Harvick Jimmy Johns NASCAR, #43 Petty NASCAR, Peeps, '62 thunderbird, bumper car, Lightning McQueen, a delorean and the Hooters NASCAR).   We went to church.  Paul and Nathan went to Hooters for lunch and I stayed home and ate my honey baked ham!
