Talk about an awesome February break! Aurora got a chance to head down to the Sonoran Dessert for her break from school last week. Came home on the red-eye, landed at 9am, played HOCKEY at noon... what an amazing way to end a great week.
Here are a few of her marvelous images from her trip. Annotations are Aurora's.
