Arizona trip (part 4).

(This is the last Arizona post. I promise.)

Our week in Arizona has been wonderful- can't believe it's almost over! It's been so fun to enjoy time together and do fun activities!

We had a little Bananagrams action one night.

Kley, Elizabeth, Brett, and I took a Segway tour of Old Town Scottsdale and it was so much fun! It did take a bit to get used to the Segway and I was much more timid than Kley while riding, but I loved it. Such a unique experience! I'm so glad we did it. And Old Town Scottsdale was so great to see! What a beautiful town.

In the afternoon we took Norah to MacDonald's Ranch. I'm glad we went and it was fun, but I wouldn't say it was my absolute favorite. Norah was a bit young for it. Also, a few years back Kley had an allergic reaction to a horse (we thought), and it was definitely confirmed today. He didn't even touch the horse and he was sneezing up a storm after. No more horses for Kley!

This was a fun place to go and it was set up like an old western town. I think their big specialty are trail rides, which would be fun for older kids. For younger kids, they had a petting zoo, pony rides, and a game area. We stayed for a little over an hour and that was the perfect amount- I don't think you could spend a super long time there. But, it's free (besides a tip for the pony ride), so that's awesome!

Norah and Daddy!

Norah didn't mind looking at the animals, but didn't want to be too close and definitely didn't want to touch.

We didn't think Norah would actually ride the pony, but she did! Brave girl. You could tell she was scared, but she warmed up a bit by the end. Way to go, Norah!

For supper we went back to Old Town and ate at Grimaldi's Pizza, which was delicious.

Then we went across the street to the Sugar Bowl, which is a classic old ice cream parlor. Would recommend both places!
