December was cold (i.e. 40's/50's...we're wimps now) and packed with activities, so we took a break from hiking and camping. By January we needed another adventure. The weather report threatened 20 mph winds and a 60% chance of rain, but we decided to risk it anyway and drove our family to Tumacacori National Historical Park

And somehow we convinced him to finish our trip with a short hike down to the river (running water in Arizona never ceases to amaze me). Everyone was happier. Maybe it was the sun finally coming out and warming us up. Maybe it was being out in nature. Maybe it was the promise of snacks on the way back.
It hailed a little bit just before we hit the Visitor's Center and then we were back in car (which we left wide open...thankfully nothing was taken).As we were leaving:
Lakin: "Did you guys have fun?"
Alice: "Mama, do you know what pandas eat? Bamboo!"
