happy new year!
Did everyone have a good New Years?
We are fairly "low key" new years wise...we always have a cheese fondue New Year's Eve...but other than that we just kind of hang out. The little girls went to bed before midnight...the rest of us stayed up but just barely.
I couldn't believe that I missed "ringing" in 2010 by five measly seconds!
Sigh...
Today we went to Woolaroc, the favorite lodge of Frank Phillips. It was a beautiful, though cold, day to go today. The museum was amazing...
Frank was interested in exotic animals (e.g. giraffes, zebras, elephants...) and so his lodge (and part of the museum) is filled with the heads of all types of animals.
As you may (or may not) know, I'm obsessed with giraffes. So of course I had to take this picture! :)
Check out the two headed calf (?) on the left...
He had (and they are still there) buffalo. When we were leaving they were very close to our car...it was kind of neat.
In all these pictures I didn't have to zoom in at all.
When we got back (it's roughly an hour's drive) we went out to P.F. Chang's. Believe it or not, it was actually the first time we had gone there. It was so yummy. I love how they serve "family style", with all the food in the middle of the table. I once heard that what you do on the first day of a new year you will do every day. Hmm...I'm not sure that's going to work to drive an hour each way to Woolaroc and go out to eat at P.F. Chang's every day... :) All in all our first day of 2010 was pretty good. How was yours? -carlotta
