Time to Get Back on Track

I promise, I am getting back to blog land.  To say it has been a little busy around here would be an understatement!  We are in full moving mode at the house.  Things are really starting to heat up around here and it is getting a little too crazy to sit down and blog.  I have plenty of things to blog about, I just can't seem to find the time.  I promise I am working on it, so please keep looking below for my favorite...back dating!

Foley Hot Air Balloon Festival

We had the opportunity to go to the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Foley, AL this year.  It is the seventh largest in the world.  It was a lot of fun.  It was a bit too windy for the balloons to actually take off, so they only did the glow, but it did not disappoint.  I am so glad we were able to mark this off of the list of things that we hadn't done yet in while living in Florida.

Abilene Zoo

While Taris and I were in Abilene, we visited one of the boys favorite things to do...the zoo.  We had a lot of fun and Grams met us up there too.  The Abilene Zoo has the best feature I have seen anywhere...there is this bridge that goes across the giraffe habitat and at the top you get to feed them!  It is so neat to see that huge tongue come out looking for the cracker.  The giraffe is Mason's current favorite animal so Rae usually spends a lot of time on the bridge.

Isn't Tucker too cute?!

Loved that the squirrel was helping himself to the food for the zoo animals
