Look the photo I found on the internet!

Ladybug attended the Arizona Get Outdoor Expo last year with Mamabug and Papabug, and is now on their home page. We love the Outdoor Expo – it’s a great way to find out about outdoor activities and opportunities all over Arizona. There are tons of fun activities for kids and adults, including a catch and release fishing pond (as shown in the photo), a rock climbing wall, live wildlife from various agencies around the state, archery, boat displays and so many camping and RV displays you can lose count.

So if you are looking for something to do in Arizona this weekend, stop by and check it out. Here is the information from their website:
