Arizona Vacation (Part II)

4. WEDNESDAY (3/5)...Our Wednesday activity was heading an hour and a half North to the Out Of Africa Wildlife Park. Again we had a blast!!! We went on an African Bush Safari, watched the Creature Feature Show, the Giant Snake Show, the Tiger Splash Show, and the Predator Feed. The day did get a little long for Mase (who refused to nap until the last 30 minutes). He threw a few tantrums (per his norm) but most of them were when we made him walk away from playing in the sand. (They had a fun sand play area).
Riding a Rhino...a fake Rhino :)
Feeding the (real) Giraffe on the African Bush Safari
Playing in the sand (a vacation FAVORITE)!!!
Molly and Momma
My two favorite little people in THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!!
Grandpa, Mase, Grandma, and Molly waiting for lunch.
Yep...we were THIS close!!!
The Tiger Splash Show

And then for dinner we stopped at the famous Rock Springs Cafe. We enjoyed a yummy meal and took one of their famous pies back to Brian's Uncle and Aunt's house for dessert!!!

5. THURSDAY (3/6)...Our Thursday activity was visiting the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. Mase enjoyed a carousal ride with daddy and a train ride with mommy, daddy, and grandpa.
The park also had a super fun play area (complete with sand). And boy oh boy did Mase love the monkey bars...
Daddy and Molly

At night we ate dinner outside at El Encanto Mexican Restaurant. Talk about a delicious meal complete with fried ice cream.  
The best part of the night (for Mase) was feeding the ducks. (There was a pond within the restaurant). He could have stayed there all night long!!!

6. FRIDAY (3/7)...Our Friday activity was visiting the Phoenix Zoo with Brian's parents and his cousin and her husband. We had a great day!!!
Watching the giraffes.
Checking out the lions.
Petting the goats.
"Milking" the cow with daddy and Mike.

Three years ago (when we were last in Arizona) we visited the Phoenix Zoo and this is what I had to say...
"We also went to the Phoenix Zoo. If you don't remember from other posts my hubby LOVES Zoos. Which means we now have 3 Zoo's to revisit with (our future) kids in tow!"  And I posted this picture...
So you better believe we snapped a picture with our two beautiful (no longer future) kids in tow. The sign wasn't the same but oh well.
For dinner we went to Ajo Als (another delicious Mexican Restaurant) with Brian's Uncle and Aunt, parents, and cousin and spouse. Again the meal was completed with fried ice cream. As you can tell we LOVE to finish our meals with dessert!!! Before leaving for the night Brian snapped a picture of Molly and I...
