mini-family vacation

i'm in grad school and my mother-in-law is a teacher... and our fall break fell on the same weekend, so we decided to take a trip to the creation museum & ark encounter. we started planning the trip with my in-laws and thought my parents would like to see both also... so it turned into a mini-family vacation with both of our families! everyone took off work friday & we had a long weekend exploring. Thomas also has a friend who lives in Ohio that is the son of some of my parents close friends... so we met them for dinner one night & went to their church on Sunday morning where he is the worship leader. 

honestly, my favorite part of the trip was walking around the gardens and seeing the animals! (it was also nice to have an entire three days where i didn't have to think about school or do any work!) i'll pretty much go anywhere there are animals ;) plus, i got to ride a donkey and a camel! that was really neat! it was also really neat to think about the ark and all of the animals and people who rode out the flood in it. it's one thing to read about it in the Bible... but another thing to be in a replica and imagine all of it!
