We took a short family trip to Tucson for one of Ben's residency interviews. The first day I took Elizabeth to the Arizona Sanora Dessert museum. In Elizabeth's limited vocabulary of plants: tree, pumpkin, banana, apple, beans, and peach, she chose pumpkin. Lizzy kept calling the cactus pumpkin. In but eventually learned the word cactus. Liz had to take her naps in the car but was flexible that way. The next day Ben went golfing while I stayed busy keeping Lizzy safe, and that afternoon we went to the Saguaro National Park. Did you know that the Saguaro cactus grow about a foot in 10 years. And do not grow arms until they are about 75 years old! The last picture during out nearly 4 hour lay over. Lizzy slept in the stroller for 3 hours until she finally slid all the way out and the airport got more busy.
