A vacation is a specific trip or journey, usually for the purpose of recreation or tourism. People often take a vacation during specific holiday observances, or for specific festivals or celebrations. Vacations are often spent with friends or family.
. . . and so this week we have celebrated a birthday, Joshua turned 5,
went to a baseball game and the highlight for the boys was getting their picture taken with the tiger,
spent some time everyday at the pool,
and today we went to the Tampa Lowry Park Zoo.
Even though it was 102 (who goes to the zoo when it's that hot out!?) we enjoyed seeing the 1,700 animals and covering 56 acres (and I really think we covered it ALL!). There were so many unique opportunities if you were interested . . . feeding a giraffe, taking a ride on a camel, holding a lorikeet, feeling a stingray . . . and many more! There were water-play areas for the kids and zoo rides (which the kids loved).
