Part 2 of our trip

WOW---can you believe it, blogging 2 days in a row!!! Thanks to you ladies who made me feel better about being a bad blogger.

I thought I'd share a little about what we did when we weren't hiking.

Of course after a long day on the trails a dip in the hot tub would be perfect!!!

The hot tub was BROKEN!!!!!!!!! (GRRRRR)

But since the temps were in the upper 80s we all spent some time in the pool. We ate pizza at the hotel one night and since Matt and I celebrate our 19th anniversary the night before we left and Stacey (my brother--check him out here ) and this wife Gwen celebrated their 18th anniversary when we returned--Mom took us all out to eat at a really good restaurant.

You know how my family is, we must play Scattergories.

Once again--the team of Brier and Landon couldn't be stopped because they added Matt.
OK--I hate to boast; however, feel that I must share that on the first night Lauren and I finished just 2 points behind them!!! Yea for us!!

Moving on, after 2 days of hiking we opted to do something different on Friday. Since Columbus is on our way home we stopped at:
The Columbus Zoo!!!

Yes, more walking outside in the heat!! I think I shared several times that I much prefer an air-conditioned museum; however, we still had a great time. Check out a few more animal shots.

Well, I think that pretty much wraps up our trip. It was lots of fun. Thanks to all who participated. We are already taking about next year!!!

But for now, I must be going. Several of my cousins and their spouses are having babies, 2 of the 3 have had them and I need to work on baby gifts. I have a stack of fabric in the basement that is calling my name. I may be back tomorrow with a post on baby gifts or -----3 days in a row??? Only time will tell.
