|Can you guess where we are here...?!!? Bet you can't! Find the answer below :)|
|someone was SUUUUPER excited to be heading to see his Mamaw and Papaw. While we loaded up the car, he sat in his seat just like this!|
Jack chatted up the waitress, ordered for himself, counted for and talked to everyone nearby, and made several friends with the kiddos and families at the tables next to us. We left, did some shopping for Jack's big boy bed (Baby Harry is getting his current one), and then it was time to head home because it was bedtime.
|they had a HUGE tank and did some seriously crazy jumps, flips, and tricks. We could've hung out with them all day!|
|This was, "Rocky" out doing his thing about 75ft up!|
This is J's real Uncle Joe after finishing the Indianapolis Monumental Half-Marathon last year (Jack even brought his stuffed Uncle Joe to the finish line to cheer for and support him on)... and see? He's not that hairy, so it makes it even more silly that Jack calls Orangutans that. It means we love our Uncle Joe so much that we can be silly and poke fun WITH him and it doesn't make him sad :)
Okay, back to our Fall Break action...
We then headed off to see many other animals --> lions, tigers, cheetahs, hyenas, rhinos, elephants, flamingos, desert habitat creatures, baboons, etc. (sadly, it was too cold to feed the birds), but we did get to feed the giraffes! Jack was SO pumped because he LOVES giraffes.
|No, I was NOT zoomed in, this was literally how close we were to the giraffe!|
|looking pretty apprehensive, but trust me, he put on his brave big boy pants and rose to the challenge by feeding that giraffe!|
|Mr. Thomas snapped this immediately after feeding the giraffes|
|Roar-ing at the lion and lioness|
|Rhino watching with his Mamaw and Papaw|
|brrrrrrr... it was so windy and cold!|
Once we saw most of the animals we wished to see, we had to leave because it was so, so cold and baby boy was hungry, but not before he got his grandparents into the gift shop where he got himself a brand new stuffed giraffe for the occasion. "Jerry-raffe" now accompanies our little buddy everywhere he goes. No seriously, it's his new BFF.

We got lunch, did some more shopping, and then headed home for naptime. Jack was tired too. Ha! He got up, we went out to dinner and then came home to watch this fabulousness!!! I mean seriously...what. a. game.!
The game was WAAAAAY past my bedtime, but was so very worth it. I woke up so tired, but still so excited! We had to get on the road early because Mr. Thomas's parents were off to Lucas Oil Stadium for the Colts vs. Ravens game (the Colts WON!) and we too had to get home in time for Mr. T. to watch the game himself. I beat Mr. T twice at the alphabet game on that drive from Indy to L'ville today while J enjoyed his new DVD from his Mamaw and Papaw (he is so spoiled!).
Jack and I spent our Sunday at Kroger and Whole Foods, followed by installing a new bookshelf in his room and baking cookies, all the while, Mr. T enjoyed loads of football and I whipped up some delicious homemade chili for our crispy, cool fall Sunday dinner and worked on school stuff too.
