Hoover Dam, Navada

Welcome to the Grand Canyon State

With the amount of concrete that was used to build Hoover Dam, a 4000-mile two-lane highway could have been built. It would be able to stretch from San Francisco to New York! It took more than 10,000 people to build, and more than 100 people died during its construction.

Science center education

Science is fun. Science is curiosity. We all have natural curiosity. Science is a process of investigating. It’s posing questions and coming up with a method. It’s delving in.

Taking our boys to Science Centers all over the country has been such a fun way to teach them Science.

The Flandrau Science Center was our morning outing yesterday before heading out to Saguaro National Park.

Saguaro National Park, Tucson, Arizona

We’ve been taking in the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Today we visited Saguaro National Park. The protected saguaro cacti are so interesting to look at – they are huge!

It’s ok to have fun … next to a Saguaro 🌵. We try to get a family photo that’s decent, but this is what we get most of the time. Boys will be boys.
