We are Back

The zoo was really hot!  But we had lots of fun.  Even though it was really hot we did get to see lots of animals.  I haven’t been there in years so I felt like it was the first time there.  They have changed a few things since then.  I did happen to get a few pictures.

  We really liked to watch the Elephants.

  Here we are trying to cool off in the shade.

  More elephants!

  Sigfried and Roy’s white tigers!

  The baby giraffe exhibit just opened the day we were there.  They are supposed to come and eat right out of your hand but they were just a bit shy on opening day.  They sure were cute though!

After the Zoo we stopped by the new Ikea store.  I didn’t find any chairs there but we had fun looking at everything especially the baby furniture!  No I don’t have anything to tell anyone but maybe (hopefully) in the next year!  We have to get the house finished first. 

The rest of our trip revolved around going to my brother’s graduation on Saturday and his party on Sunday.


  My grandma made such a pretty and yummy cake!  She formed the roses out of sugar!

The visit was great!  Oh and how could I forget…we ordered our kitchen cabinets too.  My mother helped me design the kitchen and we bought them from my Dad’s store.  It will be about 3 or 4 weeks before they are delivered.  My parents are coming down to help us install.  I am so excited because they haven’t made the trip down before.
