70 degrees. In November. Really?

>> Thursday, November 5, 2009

We woke up really early this morning. But we have done that since this whole time change so this morning was really nothing new. Last night I called an outlet store about 1.5 hours away to find out if they had the drapes that we want for our living room - that's right I said drapes. They did - really, am I really getting excited to save money on DRAPES and drive 1.5 hours to get them?

After breakfast the girls and I were off. We left the house by 9 am so that Ruby could sleep on the ride :) As we were driving there I got to thinking, today was supposed to be a really beautiful day so how about if I made this a fun day by adding a zoo trip? I haven't been to the Greenville Zoo but, what the heck, let's do it! We found our drapes - yeah! We also found the zoo - not hard. Not my favorite zoo but the girls LOVED it. Siamangs were very vocal and active. Tarantula was as big as Violet's hand, ask her :)

Today was a good day.

Now for the obligatory photo of the children from my less than stellar backup pocket camera b/c this was an unplanned trip :)



I encourage unplanned trips, they are the best fun!

You need a bumper sticker that says, "Will drive for deals". :)

And that is so cool to see that photo. I have a photo around here somewhere of Raya and Bryce sitting on those exact lions from earlier this year. It's a small world. ;)

I'm a spontaneous person so I love unplanned stuff. Great picture even if from a backup camera.
