reflecting on the weekend

Today was the day to upload pictures and videos and reflect on the weekend trip we took to Ohio. A lot of the trip was driving, or stopping while driving, and more driving, which was not captured (phew!). But looking over the highlights, I am feeling good about our trip. We visited with family, took an animal safari (yes, in Ohio!), hunted for fossils, ate great meals, and brought home some free garden-fresh vegetables. The boys played with cousins, aunts, and uncles, read books with grandparents, and had a lot of outdoor playtime.  Plus, we have great new family pictures with everyone in them!

    LOVE the family pic!! How did you manage everyone’s eye contact and (genuine!) smiles?? It’s beautiful 🙂
    And you know I have to ask where this “safari” was?
    I’m glad everyone had a good time!

    Gary (father-in-law) took about oh, 30 pictures 🙂

    The Wagon Trails Animal Park is up in Vienna, Ohio, near Youngstown.
    The kids loved it. For an hour, you feed the animals off of the big vehicle and can pet some of them. The camels were so pushy for food they just stuck their heads right in, reaching for a bucket! They had water buffalo, zebras, camels, ostich, lots of small animals, oh more, but I cannot think of them now.

    It is a great family pic!

    Has anyone been to the safari something that the Columbus Zoo runs? That’s somewhere off 70 between Columbus and Pittsburgh.

    I love that family portrait too! Well done, Gary! I wish I lived closer to do more of those for you.
