Akron Zoo: Memeber's Night

  The Akron Zoo has a few member only times for their members to be at the zoo.  Last year, I went to a member night visit, that was in June.  Last week, on Thursday, August 13, was another member's night, and I went after working in my classroom.  Here are some pictures that I took last week at  the zoo.

My Vacation

  I went on a three week vacation last month.  I left on Thursday, July 16 and got home on Wednesday, August 5 at 1:30 am. I spent a week in the Dallas area to see my friends.  We had lots of girls time (that is the norm when I am in town.), went to the Perot Museum, saw the movie, "Faith of our Fathers",  went to the zoo, went to church, did science experiments, got a massage, went swimming at a friend's house.
   After a week in TX, flew up to Portland, OR.  Spent the weekend in Vancouver, WA. My cousin got married on my birthday.  My parents, my sister, and my niece also flew out for the wedding.  The day after the wedding, drove to the beach, to check out the Pacific Ocean.  It was low tied, so we were able to walk out far.  The water was very cold. 
    The next day, drove back to Boise, ID.  On the way, stopped to see a waterfall.  I spent a week hanging out with my aunt and uncle, and my cousins.  It was a great vacation.
