Girls Only.

Call us crazy, brave, wonderful or a little bit of all. Early this summer, Roz's mama and I decided we would do an over-night road trip with our girls. No boys. Our schedules aligned for a late summer adventure.

We packed in the car and headed east...a whopping 60 minute drive. Who knew we could take in an drive-thru African safari so close to home? It was crazy, surreal and yet I found myself giggling like a three-year old while trying to dodge the wildlife peeking through our car windows. Ella L-O-V-E-D the experience. Roz H-A-T-E-D the experience. I fed curious animals carrots through my slightly open window (Still squealing. Me. Not the animals.) Katie sat between the car seats in the back in an effort to relax Roz who I'm pretty sure wanted me to slam the gas pedal to escape.

We peeled Roz's eyes open eventually, stopped for lunch and headed to our hotel room at an incredibly large, loud and rather overwhelming indoor water park. When the girls figured out we were having a major slumber party with snacks, beds for jumping and then swimming their heads almost spun off.

We've decided that the girls would have been just as happy at a hotel with a small, indoor swimming pool ... an excellent idea for February when we can't tolerate another cold, wintry day. Thankfully, the water park had the perfect fit for our girls. Too bad we figured this out our last morning there!

What wonderful memories for our sweet little ladies and for the old girls, too!

Have a good week, Ella-Land!
