K Rex and I took a lil time away from work to celebrate my birthday and just have a small getaway. He planned us a trip up to Cincinnati. Cincy is special to us because we had one of our very first dates there and always sneak up there for good dinning and shopping on occasion. My brother came down and kept the doggies and we headed up I-75 ...destination Cincinnati Zoo early morning on my actual birthday. The zoo was an epic fail due to the gloomy miserable, rainy, cold weather :( YUCK!!!
|Rainy weather put a minor snag in our plans|
|We tried to wait it out...but the raindrops kept on coming|
|Not happy camper number one|
|Not happy camper number two|
A couple photos before dinner...I desperately need a new camera and a tripod. Maybe Santa will hook a girl up.
|Corn fritters for appetizers...so yummy|
|We finished our meal with caramel apple cheesecake and peanut butter with Reese's cup cheesecake. We were stuffed!!!!|
|We got a photo snapped after dinner...and of course had to to have a to-go baggie.|
|Two thumbs up for the awesome weather for our adventure to the zoo.|
I ADORE animals and I was like a little kid wondering around the zoo. Here are a couple of the pics we snapped during the day.
|This Gorilla, Jomo, was huge...like literally 8 foot tall.|
|The Polar Bears were one of our favorite attractions. We got to watch an actual feeding and they were quite the entertaining little fellers.|
I loved my birthday and I am so blessed to be surrounded by so much love from family and friends. It was a great birthday indeed.
