Wonderful Vacation and Birmingham Zoo Photos

We're finally back from our long and wonderful vacation.  You know you've been living out of a suitcase and in a hotel too long when you return to your house and you feel like it is huge.  There were so many amazing memories made and a few to forget too.  The ones we don't want to remember would be how my dear husband thought he had chiggers from planting some flowers before we left, but it ended up he had poison ivy which he passed on to me, long hours in the car with cranky kids, some skinned knees, and trying to eat in restaurants with two little boys.  But honestly, it was a fantastic time.  It is good to be settled back at home though too.

Our first stop was Birmingham, AL to go to the zoo.  It was a great place for the kids to get some energy out and have some fun.

This is what would lead to skinned knees....do not let your toddler try it at home.

The boys loved looking at all the animals.  They also loved being able to run around.  

I think after this trip, we could just refer to Ryan as...
Monkey One.

And Sean as...
Monkey Two.  

The lions were a prefect representation of Pat and my household roles.
The momma...
 And the dadda.

And here are just some random photos that I thought were worth sharing.






I cannot wait to tell you about our next stop.  It is an unexpected vacation stop, but really beautiful and quite fun.
