I hope you’ve had a great week!
I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things after taking some time off. Normally, since it’s Friday, I would post a “Happily Ever Before & After” feature here on the blog, but since I decided to unplug for the last couple weeks, I haven’t been able to come up with any rooms to feature! So, I thought I would switch things up a bit & just share some photos from my little bloggy vacation instead.
I had mentioned a couple weeks ago that we were going to take a little trip north to visit some family, including my little sis….that is how my break started. This was a picture I snapped in the car of the boys & I while we were still sitting in the driveway waiting to take off. I wanted to remember how happy & excited we were to be getting away for a few days, because I knew the look on
our my face would be much different after a 5 hour car ride in the backseat with these two!
Overall the car ride their went pretty well. The boys were pretty content watching their movies & eating snacks, but the car ride home was a different story!
Our reason for making the trip north was to attend a wedding reception for my husband’s college friend. My sister offered to keep the boys overnight for us, so it was just the hubby & I all dressed up for a night on the town. I decided to break out my coral striped dress for the occasion! I was so happy to have another reason to wear it! You can read more about the dress HERE.
We had such a great night out! It was fun catching up with old friends & dancing all evening. It was especially nice being able to sleep in the next morning….thank you Aunt Cortney for keeping the boys!! YOU ROCK!
This was a photo that my sister sent me that next morning…..
Eating donuts & drinking orange juice from coffee mugs….looks like a great morning to me! I think it’s safe to say that these two had a great time with their Aunt!
The next day, the weather was absolutely beautiful & we decided to take advantage with a family trip to the zoo!
We went to the Niabi Zoo near Moline, IL. It is such a nice zoo & the perfect size for little kids. We were able to get through the entire thing in about 2 hours & still got to see so much! Probably one of the favorite parts for the boys was being able to feed the ducks.
We also got to go through a petting zoo & feed goats as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of that because I was having to help Griffin quite a bit. He wasn’t too keen on the idea at first, but once I gave him the push he needed, he did great! He thought the goats were hilarious!
I did manage to snap a shot of one of the swans near the duck pond. She was busy guarding her eggs. Do you see the size of those things?! CRAZY!
We made our way through the zoo visiting the zebras, giraffes, and monkeys too.
This place is a little bit of heaven on earth. Seriously, if I could move in I would. 🙂 Every square inch covered in beautiful flowers.
Thanks so much for visiting me today!! Have a great Friday & a wonderful weekend!
Got anything exciting planned?!
