lightrail, lux and burton barr


top of my kids list for spring break activities was to ride the lightrail.  they didn't really care where, they just wanted to ride it.  so, we headed down to central and camelback and rode the light rail to lux for a little afternoon treat and then on to the burton barr central library to stock up on some new books and movies for spring break.
"that's just her face."

my kids love the downtown library.  not sure if its the fountain inside, the glass elevators or the fifth floor bathrooms, but this is the library they always want to go to (even over the scottsdale library with its fancy castle).  and it certainly is always an adventure in people watching and a lessen in homelessness.  two highlights including a man trying to sell me a digital camera, while my kids stared wide-eyed and then asked, "didn't he know you already have a camera?"  and another man, as we sat waiting for the light rail, asked me if i  smoked and did i have a cigarette he could bum.  this actually horrified my children and jack couldn't stop asking, "why would he think you smoke?"  good times.


i love spring break.
possibly more than most kids.
its like a little teaser for summer and all the goodness ahead.  
bring on june!
