Oh more Botswana!


There was so much more than animals too!  All of the camps were so different and had their own special qualities... Here is our bed at Jao Camp.  It was also the camp that we got the closest to the elephants!




Botswana

In Botswana we moved through three different camps so there are so many pictures of just Botswana so I will have to add them as I find really good ones!

Here is a tribute to the Wort Hogs because they are the funniest animal and I came to love them very much!  They first of all have they to get down on their knees to eat and just watching that is funny!  But even better, their skin is so tight on their body that when they run they close their eyes to protect them from any bushes they might run through and in closing their eyes it causes their tail to shoot straight up!  That is why whenever you see a Wort Hog running their tail will be straight in the air!

Then the lion cubs.... they were two months old and it was just them hanging out, mom was out hunting and they were the most playful little things ever!  I could have sat there all day and watched them! 

The baby zebra, our guide say was less than a week old so he was still a little wobbly on his little legs!

South Africa





All of the animals were more amazing than I could have ever imagined!  I think I never realized how close we were going to actually get to them, unbelievable!!  And pretty much on the first day we had seen all 5 of the "Big 5"!!

AFRICA!

I have wanted to go to Africa pretty much since I was in the womb and we got to go in October!  My fantastic parents did such a good job planning and organizing I could not have hoped for anything better!  It was the greatest trip we have taken as a family yet!  So we started out in Johannesburg for a night... pretty much saw the airport and our hotel which we could have walked to from the airport but had to wait like a half and hour for a van to take us..??  But woke up the next morning to the staff of the hotel singing and dancing in the lobby!  Because everyone in Africa is born with the amazing ability to sing and dance!  It was amazing!

Halloween!



I love dressing up!  So it makes Halloween parties a blast, and last night was no different!  It was tons of fun, got very little sleep and had to be at work at 9:00 am the next morning but it was all worth it!  So I went as a boxer and Shane and all his "roomies" went as various Sesame Street characters!

The Wedding!






I couldn't put all the pictures that I wanted so had to make two posts!  Because everything was planned and executed so perfectly!!

So the bride in the first one is in the middle... she looked so pretty and Millen so hansom!  Then her cake which was so yummy.  And Padgett, Hannah and Maria in front of one of the two tents and then the boat which was the getaway!!  So cute!

With love from MAINE






For a way to fast vacation Mom, Dad, Padgett and I got to fly into Maine for our cousin, Wheeler's wedding!  It was so pretty and I would go back to Maine in a heartbeat!!  Even though we were just in the little itty bitty town of Camden!

So the pictures.... the first one is the view from Padgett and I's hotel room (isn't it amazing!)  Then the first night we were there we went on a boat for a dinner cruise so that was our nautical night... well the whole weekend was nautical but that was what the dresscode for that night was!  Then from the boat we got our first glance of the wedding spot... oh so pretty!  Then before the wedding we went to a brunch and lastly the view flying in!

Jackson Fantastic!

Jackson Hole is so fantastic!

We got the chance to go this past weekend, I drove up with my cousins Hannah and Toby!  We were there for all of two days but managed to do everything!

Hiking, biking, floating, boating and the all classic laying by the pool!  And had and amazing dinner at the top of the mountain in Teton Village!  

So much fun to be there with my family, cousins, Aunts and Uncles and everyone that we got to hang out with!

Hannah's Bridal Shower



We had a small little get together at my Grandma's house, out on her patio!  It was so cute... My mom, sister and I  put it together really from three different locations, so we did a fantastic job!  And it went off flawlessly, it was so perfect and everyone had a fantastic time!  So as of today the countdown is on for Hannah and Toby.... 21 days to go!!

Vegas






Las Vegas is great! We had a secret connection and got into all of the clubs that are in The Palms casino including the Playboy Club! We managed to surpass all lines and did it all for free! So much fun, I also found a sugar daddy that let me play Craps with $300 of his money! I lost it all and he still let me keep a $25 chip so I played for 4 hours and made $25! NICE

Photography

I love taking pictures and this was Jake and Carrie's idea but I did do the honors and took it for them!  Isn't that a cute idea for Thank You's for after your wedding!

First Off

I am trying to be more creative ... well I am creative but now I am going to start doing things and I might as well put pictures of it up!  Why not.... I have lots of extra time in my life right now and maybe this will help me find something to do with the rest of my life!
