1) Phoenix Zoo. I took my girls there today. I love bringing my girls to zoos, and we have visited several during the past few years: San Diego, Cheyenne Mt. in Colorado Spgs, Oklahoma City (twice), and Columbus Ohio. Phoenix is one of the best. It has some great attractions for small kids. Some hilly terrain, but not much. But, we missed the mountain lions . . . "Exhibit temporarily closed." What a great morning and early afternoon.
2) Serano's. I've mentioned this one before, and I have it listed as one of my favorite restaurants on the right hand column of my blog. I discovered Serano's three years ago, and must make a stop there each time I come to Chandler, AZ. If you visit, order the #33: cheese enchiladas topped with green chili beef. Very good! They were a little off tonight, but still better than most Mexican food I've had . . . and I'm quite particular.
