A Zoo of Sorts...

This last Monday was the first one that Jon has had off school, since it's finals week and all. Therefore, it's the first real weekend we have been able to spend with each other since I started working on Saturday. I was planning on making it a very productive day: working on my substitute application, my application for school at UNC, and studying for the GRE. Amidst all of that, Jon asked me if I wanted to go to the Swetsville Zoo with him. I love Zoo's so naturally I said "YES!"

When we got there, this is what we found.
From the entrance, you can't really tell, but this is a Zoo of animals made entirely of old farm materials. It is literally amazing, and Jon said we had to go because they are shutting it down. A Wal*Mart is being built across the street and they need to widen the road, so the Swetsville Zoo was looking a little sad, but that didn't stop us from enjoying all the wonderful creations!

These guys are AWESOME!!!

This guy is super tall,

Jon looks super small!

And I'm taking off!

It was a really fun trip, and way cool to see all of that stuff. There is sooo much more that I didn't take pictures of, but if any of you are in Fort Collins in the near future (since it's closing) you should go to the Swetsville Zoo!

Happy Birthday To YOU!!!

Monday, May 4th, was Jon's birthday! We got to do a lot of stuff that week, even though Jon was stressed with finals. It was a good feeling to be able to treat him and show him how I do birthdays. I made him breakfast, which was awesome because I used the "I am Special Today" plate and made him waffles and sausage. Here is a pic of him about to eat!

After he got home from school we opened presents.
Before we began!

Bing likes to help!

And now, the grand finale!!!!

Since he had been wanting a bike for so long... I, along with my parents, got him this!!!!

That way he can ride his bike to school and get some exercise!!! It was a really fun and exciting day and I'm so glad he had a good birthday.

Happy Birthday Love! I love you so much!
