The visit was well worth it and I don't think I've ever seen so many green plants in Phoenix, it was a wonderful surprise. Usually in Phoenix everything is brown and dead because the summer's heat had dried it up, so we were pleasantly surprised when we found so much green. The whole thing really made me wish I had brought my picnic blanket and book so we could just kickback and relax on the luscious grass.
And to note, the flags you see pictured are at half mast for the 19 firefighters that passed away in the Yarnell, Arizona fire. It's such a sad story, one that you think and wish was just a dream. My heart is full when tragic events like this happen, all I can say is thank you to them and to their families for the sacrifice they have made.
After our short escapade at the park on central we enjoyed a night at the science center. Brand and I have been there a hand full of times in the past four and a half years we've been married, and it's fun to visit especially when we don't have anything planned.... and it's free. Our most favorite part of the science center is the weather room. In the middle of the room they have a stage where a big group of people stand and are toured through different types of weather, it rains, winds blow, there is thunder and heat. It's a pretty fun exhibit.
And from there we headed home. Oh, the joys of not having kids and it being just-the-two-of-us. We will enjoy it while it lasts -not an announcement...
Happy Monday Friends!
