BUNCO!!!! :(

Well It was my last Bunco night out! I met some reallly great women playing this game. 13 different women coming together once a month to eat, drink, and role some dice(make some money too) what more could you ask for. It has been awesome for the last year and a half. Thanks to all you girls who have accepted me into your circle. Hopefully when I get back and can take my spot back and I will be ready for some great food and conversation.

Also, thank-you for my game, now I hope that I can meet 12 other girls as wonderful as all of you and start my own group out there in California! You all will be missed!

More Norfolk Zoo Pics

The Peacock was following us for sometime. The kids were almost able to touch him. Not a good idea though.

Here I the new Train that took us all the way around the zoo.

This was the first time in All the times we have been to the zoo that the Baboon was out and actually walking around. He only had out undivided attention for a few minutes because a tree seemed more interesting to him that entertaining us humans. He plopped a squat next to the tree and began to pick bark, what a life!
The Elephants were having lunch as we walked by their habitat. Looks like tons of fun! I think the sight of them eating put the idea into the 13 preschoolers that it was lunch time! Let the MELTDOWNS begin!

Norfolk Zoo

It was the annual Kids Quest Preschool trip to the Norfolk Zoo, and what a great day it was. Chris and I were both able to go with Olivia this year. Wow how the zoo has changed, the train is now up and chugging along. They are in the middle of renovating the Tiger's home right now, and what a project that is. By the time we get back to Va it will probably be almost finished. I still can't get over the fact that the Elephants are right smack dab in those peoples front yard. What a way to wake up everyday!

Shamrock Marathon 8K

This was the Shamrock 8K Marathon that Chris ran back in March. Chris even dyed his MOHAWK GREEN for the race. We were all very proud and cold after the run. His time was 48 minutes and and ?? seconds. He also ran this race with our good friends 10 year old son Jay Tipton. Jay actually smoked Chris by 2 minutes right at the end. Too bad old man! We all had a great time! In this picture Carter and Susie had made signs and were down on 19th street to cheer him on!
Chris running the last 1/4 mile to the finish!

I see a GREEN MOHAWK in the crowd, do you?

Well yesterday was officially my last day of school. I finished out my first year at TCC and now we are all preparing for our big move. Chris still has 5 weeks left and then it is game on. This will be the biggest adventure that we could possible take on. And I thought school was tough.
