The photographer caught her at the right moment! On Sunday, we attended the Outdoor Expo put on by the Arizona Game & Fish department and they were taking pictures of kids with the fish at no cost! We almost forgot to pick up the picture, but thankfully remembered moments before the event closed down.
This was the first year we attended, and it was great fun! The admission was free, and they had a ton of things to see and do. The kids had the chance to fish in big tanks. Colin was thrilled that he caught a fish! They also had the chance to shoot real guns at real targets! That was the first time they ever shot a gun, so they were very interested. Nate seemed to be a natural, easily hitting the targets. (And, no, Kraig, he still can't have a bb gun for his birthday!)
We enjoyed some typical outdoor event food, but then my sis treated Lydia and me to homemade ice cream that was delicious! We also watched a horse and rider competition where they raced around the ring and shot at balloons! Oh, and there were tons of booths with information about the park systems, camps, products and more.
The day was sunny and warm, and the event was very well-run. We had a great time and plan to attend again next year!
