We had an absolutely fabulous day with Mom & Dad Eccles and Brian. (Preceded by a pancake breakfast in bed!) They arrived at our apartment around 12:30 and we immediately partook of the delicious lunch they had packed to share with us–baked subs (satisfying my pizza crave), juicy apples, and Harvest cheddar Sunchips. It was great. Then we made our way in, through, over and around the Detroit construction to find ourselves at the Detroit Zoo around 2:00. They bought season passes and somehow managed to get Kevin and I in with their family pass for free! Super cool. The penguins were the first stop–thanks to mine and Kevin’s request. They are just hysterical. We enjoyed the rest of the afternoon with scattered showers. I was so excited to fulfill my dream of visiting a zoo. I just didn’t think it would come true so soon!
After a great afternoon, we came back to our place and rested a bit while watching the Olympics. (Opening ceremony, anyone? How awesome are the Chinese at choreography???) Around 6pm we started up the grill and Kevin cooked the awesome marinated chicken. We also had baked potatoes and mixed fruit. Our conversation was sweet and the evening ended perfectly with a big slice of chocolate cake (with chocolate frosting of course!) This was another one of my recent cravings…so this was way cool. :) (And no, you curious ones…the cravings are not an indication of anything…)
P.S. Kevin just told me I had good posture. It made me smile.
So now it’s soon to bed so we can wake up refreshed and ready to hit “America’s Roller Coast”!!!
