Wild walks

I haven’t been keeping up with the wild walks. It is heating up here which makes zoo visits a little uncomfortable after certain hours. This weeks photos from our walking adventures at the zoo will be on desert animals. All the animal photos I am sharing with you today are animals my family and I…

Arizona shopping adventures…a pretty paper store.

Remember this you guys? I visited this store a couple months ago. I love paper. When I am organizing, paper is the hardest section in my pile of messes to go through.
