Finally...it's booked!

I am so excited!!! We are going on a family vacation. Our little threesome. :) We need this! If you have been a follower for any length of time you know Mark and I love zoo's. Each time we travel we always seem to end up at the zoo in the area. Mark proposed at the zoo too! I think we are pretty lucky though to live in the same town as one of the best zoo's in the nation! (St. Louis Zoo, and it's FREE) Every year for my b-day Mark's parents get us the Zoo Membership so we have all the neat perks, it's fun, cheap, and really close! (It makes a trip to the zoo on a hot day nice to be able to have VIP parking, ride the train around for free, and get discounts on all the food, drinks, and gifts.) We were able to take Wyatt to the zoo for the first time a few weeks ago with all those fun perks! :) Anyway...Mark goes to school year round so his year is divided into trimesters. He has a break coming soon...Aug. 19 to be exact and we are leaving on a trip the minute he takes his last final. (I am pretty sure Wyatt and I are just going to ride along so we can hit the road RIGHT after.) Mark found the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium in Columbus, OH was on the top 10 in the nation zoo list. Jack Hanna (the zoo man on Letterman) is employed at that zoo! So...wanting to visit there got the ball rolling! Ha!  We found out Indianapolis, IN is about halfway to Columbus so with 2 1/2 month old we decided it may be good to plan a break in travel. What do you know...??? There is another GREAT zoo in Indy too! We are going to the Indy Zoo, staying there for 2 days then traveling to OH and visiting that zoo for a few days too! There is more on the adgenda while we are there but it's not all planned yet! We can't wait...we are really thinking about shutting off cell phones and spending time as a new family, the 3 of us together. These times are priceless! I will keep you posted on the fun!!!! Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend!!!!

  3. You are going to love our zoo here in Columbus!! It is huge!! The exhibits are so realistic, and you can really tell the animals well-being is their main concern.

  5. Our journey has begun!… secretly though

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!
