Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

We have been trying to get to the zoo for a few years and finally made it this summer. We spent two nights in Columbus with our friends Mike, Kathy and Evan Metzker. We had so much fun and it was nice to get away. We were even able to talk Joe into swimming in the pool at the hotel. He hasn't been swimming since a "pool incident" a few years ago. However, with a little convincing, we were able to talk him into it and I know he had fun.
Since we are now beginning football season, this was my last chance to spend the weekend with Joe. Sometimes I think we are so busy with life that we don't take the time to stop and enjoy it. This was such and enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Now I will be a football widow until the end of October.

Is Summer Over Already?

Okay, I swear that I really tried to keep up with my blog. However, as you can tell, my last post was in May and it is now almost the end of August. Where did the summer go? I truly believe that the older we get, the faster time flies. This picture was taken at Tuscora Park on July 5th. Joe and I went to watch the fireworks with our friends the Metzker's. After that we had VBS, went to the Columbus Zoo and now we're heading back into football season. I really enjoy the fall, so I am looking forward to cool nights and the leaves changing colors.
