Let’s get WILD – Zoo day

Friday was the last day of Winter break, so my sister & I decided to take the kids to the Phoenix Zoo. And boy, oh boy, did we have a BLAST! It was so fun showing Watson all the animals! He slept about half the time due to our timing colliding with his napping schedule.…

(got to have that cereal) But, as we were…
