Our First Anniversary

Well, it's official. We're now in year 2 of marriage! We celebrated our anniversary a week early with our trip to Omaha, but we spent the actual day at the State Fair and then came home and ate year old cake - which was actually better than we expected.
Then we took a picture. We're hoping this will become an anniversary tradition. You take a picture each year, holding the picture from the year before. So then 1) you have to take and print at least one picture as a couple each year and 2) you have picture inception to look back at through the years. 

Jenny's Baby Shower

Last Saturday, we had a baby shower for Jenny at Mike's parents house. I did the invites/decorations and Bev did food and games. I went pretty well, and I don't think baby Ben is ever going to need anything else. Wow.

The super cute baby bump is here!!

Mom and Grandma :)

Omaha Trip

Last weekend, Mike surprised me with a trip to Omaha for our early anniversary. We stayed at the Hampton and when we got there, they upgraded us to a suite! It was huge and Mike was REALLY excited for the king size bed.

On Saturday, we woke up, had breakfast and went to the Henry Doorly Zoo. It sprinkled in the morning so there was barely anyone there until afternoon. Here's a few pictures of us. For animal pictures click here or here.

Mike's favorite animals are the giraffes, so it was fun that they were one of the first that we saw. 

I was so disappointed to find out that "pachyderm hill" was only rhinos, but then I got this picture with a baby elephant.

 This little boy (in orange) was sure Mike stole his goat in the petting zoo. We convinced him Mike could share and then the goat tried to eat his pants.
Once it got busy and we realized that we both don't like people : / Or at least rude people with empty strollers in small buildings and parents who let their kids run around screaming and crying when they don't get their way. Argh.
