The Living Desert

 Ty took this week off to spend spring break playing with me and the kids!
We spent our first day visiting The Living Desert.
 We packed plenty of water and snacks. Even though it is only late March it was 90 degrees in the desert today!
Max has loved cheetah's ever since he first heard about them. (I think he was 4 or 5!)
We had a great view of the cheetahs and he loved them!

Zoey kept referring to this big cat display as the map. I don't know where she was expecting to get if she followed it!
 We spent a good hour at the discovery center.
Everyone spent a little time panning for gold.
 It was nice to cool off in the water anyway!
 The giant desert tortoises gave us a show.
 The zebras are always a hit.
 We got out of the sun for a while and played some music.
 The drumming was amazing :)

 Max and Zoey were checking out this "people" sized bird's nest. They thought it was very interesting, but no one would go inside.
 My favorite animal of the day was the jaguar! He was beautiful! He was pacing back and forth at the front of the enclosure and I was so amazed that I forgot to take a picture until he was back in his little cave.
 We tried to see the giraffes first thing, but they were no where to be found! By the end of the day the kids were exhausted. Max and Mia were both complaining that they could no longer walk and I had been carrying Zoey for a while, but we wanted to try to see the giraffes one more time!
 We were so relieved when we arrived and there they were!
The perfect end to our Living Desert adventure.
