Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum

It is just so amazing!! 


When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller! 
(Elena on the left was almost 7)

(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)

Here we are in 2004

Here we are this weekend!

They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!

The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 

We took 38 people from our church!

I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 

Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

My main squeeze with a new little friend. The penguin looks like he is staring at him.

Umm... Eve?

When we entered into the Museum we found out Ken Ham was speaking! We just HAD to go see him! He was great!

My favorite feature in the gift shop!

Seeing my father in law with Allee was just wonderful!

Our wonderful friend Joe came with us too! I was beyond thrilled that he was there! Check out his blog!

This alpaca or llama (unsure which) was very interested in him while he had snacks.

Not so much once he was out of snacks though. Lol.

This lil guy even conned Joe out of a snack too.

Here is my 11 year old nephew with my girls. He is just way too tall to be 11. Am I right?

I tried to take a photo of the three above in mid jump. They got photo bombed. The outcome was quite funny!

Yes. I documented my Starbucks. I don't get them often. We have Dunkin Donuts and Tim Hortons where I live.

The Ark in Kentucky! It's a life-size replica!


Obligatory family photo in front of the Ark! Thanks to Joe for taking this one!

My daughters face is the only reason why I had to post this picture. 


My eye was half closed, from the wind.

My nephew and Elena walking to the entrance.

I took a lot of video on Snapchat while inside, but eventually found thatputting away my phone and just experiencing this great place was the best way to take it all in. So that's what I did.

This was the selfie at the end of the day. Note the "I need to lay down soon" smile.

My baby with her Zebra. She named it Noah.

Altogether its was a great weekend. Exhausting, but wonderful! 

Welp. See you next week! 

XOXO,

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
