We drove over to Georgia for the long Fourth of July weekend, stopping first in Pine Mountain, Georgia, to visit the Wild Animal Safari. We rented a mini-van to tour the park grounds. The van had been stripped of the radio, air-conditioning, and windows and equipped with steel bars bolted over the windows. It was the perfect vehicle for cruising through the park. You have the option to drive your own vehicle, but unless you are a fan of animal slobber, go with the rental van!
The drive through the park grounds takes a little over an hour and includes interactions with all sorts of animals: deer, pigs, several species of cattle, zebra, and several giraffes. We had a giraffe come right up to our van, which we were able to hand feed. This was the highlight of the trip! We had a great time and highly recommend visiting the park.
After the park, we travelled to Columbus, Georgia, to visit with Laura and Jason, and visited the Infantry Museum at Fort Benning.

To celebrate 11 Years of Awesome, Susan and I made the trip out west to San Francisco for a long weekend. We started our trip in San Francisco, headed up to wine country in Sonoma County, then back to San Francisco to take in the rest of the city.
It was as awesome trip - check out the pictures but make sure you click "Read More" to see all the details of our trip!

With no school, Colt's been at camp all summer. He's spent time at UAB Soccer Camp and La Liga Futbol Camp, and even took in a few Hammers games (Birmingham's Semi-Pro team). He likes it when people come to watch him play, so plan on coming to see him back on the pitch this fall!

My company's annual Employee Appreciation Day was at the Birmingham Zoo. We had a great time seeing the animals and riding the rides. Sadie, however, was not a fan of the dinosaurs! Check out the pics!
