 During spring break my family and I took a trip to Rocky Point or Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. I highly recommend taking a visit. There are many things to see and do and it is only a four-hour car ride from Tucson.

Some of the things I suggest doing if you decide to adventure there are parasailing, horseback riding, jet skiing, zip lining, swimming in the Sea of Cortez and shopping. There seems to be something for everyone in Rocky Point.

 Last month my family and I went on a Cub Scout Camping weekend at Camp Raymond in Williams, Arizona. Even my sister went. Did you know that girls can be Cub Scouts, too?

We met up with our troop, set up our tent and headed out for a cool hike. On the hike, we caught crayfish and minnows in a little pond. Another troop was supposed to meet us, but the Webelos got a little lost and it took a while for them to find us. Some of the older scouts came over on the hike carrying a snake. It was a garter snake and I got to hold it.

 There are many ways to celebrate New Year’s Day. My family and I celebrate New Year’s with new shoes. We buy new shoes to symbolize putting ourselves on a new path to success.

This year our shoes have a travel theme. We chose a travel theme because we stayed at home almost a year due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The shoes we chose were covered with a colorful map of the world.

 My family and I recently went camping at the Bog Springs Campground in Madera Canyon and we had a great time. Madera Canyon is just south of Tucson and it does not take long to get there.

Campers can camp at Bog Springs for up to two weeks at a time. We located a site at the campground and set up our tent. While we were there we saw many deer and some turkeys.
