Hey from the Newark, NJ Airport!
I’m chilling in the United Club during my SEVEN hour layover. I know, it could be worse. At least I have some complimentary wine, cheese, and crackers to accompany me and free wifi. It’s real nice.
This past Labor Day weekend I was able to go home, you know Columbus, OH, and spend time with Patrick. Three full days of bliss. Well, besides the packing and laundry. We went to the Columbus Zoo, The Crest for burgers and sweet potato fries, Jeni’s Ice Cream (told you I’d be back), had a 10 mile run through the Olentangy River Trail, made spaghetti and nachos, and cuddled a lot.
FYI, when you go to the Zoo, it makes you want to have babies. It was so fun to see little ones get those “ah-ha” moments and big eyes. I kid you not, Patrick said “this makes me want babies”.
Another baby moment this weekend: I had just painted my nails red and was gentle resting them on our comforter to dry while I snuggled in bed (this is much more difficult to do than I had imagined, but I was tired), and Patrick accidentally smacked my left painted hand. “PATRICK!! MY NAILS!!!” I screamed. “Sorry! Let me see… oh it didn’t hurt them” he said. “Well you would be repainting them if it had. You need to learn anyways to paint our future princess’ nails.” I advised him. “Nope, I’m just going to take her to get manicures any time she wants” he informed me.
What?? Who is this man? I tell you what, it is good we are waiting for babies, because he is going to be so entirely wrapped around their little fingers. It’s the truth.
Anyways, below are pictures from our weekend and some pictures of my time back in Oklahoma while I was attending Senior Seminar.
Another note, after going on a safari this summer, we discussed a great deal about how we don’t know how we feel about zoos. We did see that many animals were rescued and being taken care of until good health. Also, we know the Columbus Zoo does research throughout the world in order to help animals. But, after seeing elephants, giraffes, and moneys in the wild, it was sad to see them in cages…
What are your thoughts- are zoos “humane”? Love to hear new perspectives so we can form our own!
See ya in England! Oh, and the Mr. promised to bog this week! He has been busy with school work and taking care of our house!
