¡Feliz cumpleaños!

Today I woke up to find myself inevitably a year older. Funny how that happens. We age gradually all year, but presto, on that auspicious day we're magically older and of course wiser.

We spent the day at the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum. Several people told me the kids wouldn't like it, but my kids love stuff like that. Thousands of mineral and rock samples were displayed and the kids took the time to look at every one and of course they patronized the museum gift shop when they were done.

The State Capitol was our next stop and we learned about the S.S. Arizona and a little about the state. The kids are enjoying the experience of high heat, different plants, and having a pool in the backyard. It's hard getting them out of the pool so we can do anything else.

It's interesting seeing new things and I'm glad my family likes to do the museums and the tours I like to do. I guess that's the best birthday present is spending time with my family do things we like to do.

Happy birthday, Stephanie!

I keep getting older, but I'm still waiting for the wiser. *g*

You were in Arizona on your birthday? That's neat.

My husband and I moved here five years ago and are very happy living south of Tucson among the saguaros.

Hope you get to see the Grand Canyon and other amazing sights in our state.

Happy belated! Glad to hear you're getting in some good family time and hope all those lovely museums have good air conditioning systems!

Happy, happy birthday. I like museums, but not with kids. You're a better woman than myself :-)

Hey there,

Happy birthday! I hope it was awesome.

I'm not sure how my kids would do at a museum like that, but I'd be all over it.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

I've been taking my kids to museums since they were little. Sometimes they were a little noisy, but now they love learning along with me.
