My son was the wildest "animal" at the zoo...

We went on another mini-vacation for the weekend - decided to take a trip to Evansville to visit the zoo. It poured on the way to Eville, but once we got to the zoo the sky cleared and it was a BEAUTIFUL day - so, so, so much fun with my very favorite people:) Max's favorite animal was the lion, although he could not understand why this lion didn't have a mane around its face. We saw monkeys, snakes, giraffes, zebras, fish, and all kinds of wonderful animals! Here is a picture of my two favorite animals at the zoo:) After the zoo we went to the mall and to Chuck-E-Cheese (Max's highlight of the day!) He got this cute build-a-bear at the mall:We then headed to our hotel where we had this wonderful jacuzzi room! Max was so excited that he was allowed to jump on the bed - and that there was a pool right outside our room!! For supper we walked over to Applebee's for some yummy, yummy food - then we all slept like rocks!

The next morning none of us wanted to leave...but I guess a good vacation always has to end, right? Reality really slapped me in the face when I realized I have to go to the dentist tomorrow...yuck!

Hope everyone has a great week...next weekend we have a Raber family mini-vacation planned, I'll update with pictures when we return:)!

I am glad you guys had a great weekend too. I know, it's weird how we pick our little vacations and seem to see you guys there, too...I guess great minds do think alike.
