Arizona Vacation Part 1

We drove to Arizona for our annual baseball spring training vacation. It was very fun. We stayed there for four days and 3 nights. The first day we mostly just drove. First, we went to Waffle House to eat. Their waffles are so good!!final 4

Next, we went to the University of Phoenix Stadium. There wasn’t a game going on. We just walked around the grounds. Sadly, we got trapped in, but we found a way out.

 

After, we went to the Renaissance Marriott to rest.AZ Day 1 Mar 17 050

A little later, we drove to ASU where my dad went to college. We walked around a little and found bean pods. Sarah, my little sister, was obsessed with them. Next, we sat in a golf cart and drove back to the hotel.

 

Day 1 was awesome, and I couldn’t wait for the next.

The Planetarium

We arrived at the Tessman Planetarium and discovered to be the first ones for our weekly field trip.

Fifteen minutes later, our friends came. I took pictures of some of the frames and toys.

  • A Buzz  Lightyear toy stayed in the space station for a year.
  •  An astronaut  stayed in the International Space Station for a year. His brother sent him a gorilla suit for Halloween.
  • The biggest volcano in the solar system,  Olympus Mons ,  is 26 km (16 mi) high. It is located on planet Mars, the 4th planet in the Solar System.

We learned about so many things and asked so many questions. After our field trip, we went to Taco Bell with our friends for lunch. We had such a good time.
