Grants Farm & Thriathlan-ness

Last weekend was pretty crazy and busy, but it was also a LOT of fun! Maria participated in a Triathlon and did AMAZINGLY well! Here she is a couple hundred yards before the finish line!

While Maria was in town and we had some time to spare, we headed over to Grant's Farm, and it was SO COOL!!! I wasn't expecting much going into it cause I had heard that it's kind of like a zoo, but there were buffalo, mini horses, an elephant and antelope, and this giant guinea pig mixed in with some ducks...
Oh and you could feed the goats there too. Here's Anna and Maria feeding a baby goat.

Ben got to feed the goats too!

And of course Aaron enjoyed his time with the ladies.
If you've got some free time, I recommend going. There's a fun tram ride with fun facts along the way and one cup of free beer for the adults in the food court.

This coming weekend I will be in California for Aaron's brother's wedding, so there will be more posts and pictures to follow. And on the flights there and back I'm going to finish the first Harry Potter book because I've finally given in and decided to give reading the books a try. I'm not a huge fan of the movies, but that may all chance once I read the books.
Enjoy the beautiful weekend because this summer is FLYING by!!!!

Wedding Dance

I've never been much of one to think about or plan out my wedding because I'm just not that kind of person, but my friend Bobby sent me this video and there will definitely be something fun and unexpected like this at my wedding (that is IF I ever get married).

After being wow'ed by this video and dancing along with it in my seat, I read some of the comments in response to the video on the blog it was posted in. I was shocked that some people would be up in arms about doing this at a wedding ceremony. Weddings are for the people being united, not what Aunt Susie and grandma Jean want. I am at the age where all my friends are talking about getting married and the pressures of things they "have" to do because their families want it to be a certain way, which absolutely boggles my mind. I believe that it's the bride and groom's wedding and their day to be happy and no one has the right to ruin that. But I've gathered that a large problem comes from families paying for the wedding. I say, pay for it yourself if you don't want to have your wedding be the way someone else wants it. Otherwise, you're gonna have to listen to family moan and complain about thigns. That's been my plan all along and I'm sticking to it.

For all the brides and grooms to be, Good luck and remember that no one had the right to ruin YOUR day!
For all the family members out there, take a chill pill and let the kids do as they please.
Until next time...
