Photos: Arizona Wildlife World Zoo

(originally from January 2008)

My mother and I were invited to Arizona for a week to visit my cousins Theresa and June. It was the first time I was ever out of the midwest (not counting babyhood trips), as well as my first time on a plane. I went berserk documenting it and, though I won’t share all the photos, there are some fun ones.

On the first full day there, we were treated to a trip to the Wildlife World Zoo! It was awesome!


The sun came out
