Wild Animal Park!!!

so i FINALLY got to go to the Wild Animal Park (WAP) and go through dino mountain yesterday. needless to say, i was NOT disappointed! i went with rachel and charlie, and my friend kelly. when we FIRST got into the dino mountain portion of it, charlie would NOT let his mommy go because he was TERRIFIED. after a little bit of time and with much coaxing, rachel got him to calm down and enjoy himself:

rach and i took a picture with this massive bird dino thing...
okay... after the dinos we went on the little tram ride which was pretty fun! below is brittini and i in animal form... i'll give you a hint, we're NOT the giraffes:
That's right! those two female rhinos have been best friends for 30 of their 45 years. that will totally be us some day.

kelly and i on the tram
rachel and charlie fed the ducks... charlie LOVED throwing the food out... the ducks must have liked it too... they came RIGHT up to them and ate out of their hands!


this picture is one of my favorites from the trip... charlie was pointing at the baby giraffe. SO cute! as usual, i LOVE being an aunt....

VACATION!!!!!!

so this past week (aug 3-aug 7) my boss rented a beach house on Coronado island and gave the office the whole week off to enjoy the sun and the BEAUTIFUL mansion she rented!!! i got to relax with my co-workers and enjoy the beach EVERY DAY this week! i haven't done that in a loooooong time! here is the house we were staying at:

can you say GORGEOUS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! it was so huge and beautiful and literally across the street from the beach!!!! here are some pictures of the office relaxing:



Kendall, Stacy, And Kellee... pat said we should put this on our office website...

brennan, kendall, me
me, kellee, kendall

kendall, me, rachel.

you might notice that there aren't any pictures of britt... she didn't spend much time on the beach with us and i only broke out the camera with her around once and it turned out to be a not so flattering picture. anyway, it's good to be back, but i miss my vacation :(
