Okay, you'll be grateful to know this post should be the last. No, I don't promise to stop posting our goofy faces altogether...but at least this will be the end of the vacation pics, so you should get a break for a while.
Vacation: Day 9
Spent mostly in the car, on our way north again. But we did detour off the highway, onto the Natchez Trace Parkway (one of Rich and my favorite national parks) for a bit. We really wanted to take the kids to Cypress Swamp, which is just north of Jackson, MS. Arrived in Memphis, TN late afternoon.
Vacation: Day 10
Memphis Zoo. One of the big reasons this entire vacation came to be was because of the YaYa and LeLe, the pandas at the Memphis Zoo. Gray loves bears, all bears. But pandas...wow. After the zoo, we met Renay!!!! Sorry, she asked me not to post any photos, but I can tell you that, yes, this incredible woman really does exist. And she's as sweet and adorable as can be! Thanks again, Renay!!! You have no idea how much it meant to have you drove over and spent time with me!!!
Gray petting a skink.
One of Maxidoodle's favorites. Surprise, surprise. ;)
Max began channeling his chimp cousins. He kept this up all day. Just ask poor Renay. ;)
Vacation: Day 11
Spent the morning at Shiloh National Battlefield. Then drove up through TN and most of KY.
Vacation: Days 12-13
Drove to Cleveland OH. Morning/early afternoon of day 13 were spent at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. We love this museum!!! Then drove to PA to my parents, where we spent the night.
Vacation: Day 14
After spending the morning and early afternoon with my wonderful parents, we head home to NY.
Thanks again, for Bacon-sitting, Mom and Dad!
