I think the last time we went on a vacation not attached to a convention, some dire weather formed and was a problem. We are paying attention to the weather outside our window and the weather reports to see what is going to happen next with this storm and how it is going to effect our plans to go home.
Had a lot of fun yesterday. We went to the Catty Shack, which is a rescue place for large wild cats and a few other animals. We went to see the five tiger cubs that they had recently acquired. Caroline had a blast and a half. She took a lot of pictures with her camera and had fun just looking at the cats. Many of which were awake and moving around but by the time that we left, they were mostly asleep. The ranch was celebrating the birthday of Freddy the Lion who is now seven years old. The animals are happy enough and interact well with the humans. We also found a good use for our old bowling balls because the big cats love to play with them. If you are in the area of Jacksonville and haven’t been there, it is worth the trip. Information can be found on their webste here.
After finishing up our visit to see the big cats, we dropped Shana and Caroline off at the Sun-Ray Cinema because Caroline was going to spend the night with Shana so Peter and I could eat a meal without worrying if there was something on the menu that Caroline would eat. We had our anniversary dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse and it was very nice. It was just pleasant to spend some time in each other’s company where we could totally focus on each other even though we spend a majority of the time talking about the kids and work. We discovered that this is our steel anniversary so I am going to get Peter a very nice sword.
Today plans are a little iffy due to the weather. So we are going with the flow. Might go see MIB 3 again this afternoon.
I am grateful to everyone who made our anniversary so nice for us.
