Great Date

Yesterday Erin and I did one of our "monthly dates" where one of us does all the planning and kind of surprises the other. We haven't been doing them every month lately but Erin made up for that. We went to John Ball Zoo for a while in the afternoon.

It was freezing so not many people were there. I think the animals were lonely because almost every one of them was super lively. The snakes were all active,

The llamas followed us around and one of them would look right at us and start chomping his teeth with a silly grin.

The bear came out and started clawing at a layer of snow. After working on it for awhile he piled up the snow he had just scraped off and brought it back into his cave probably to sleep on.

But the best was the tiger. He was in the back of the park and NO ONE else was around. As soon as he saw us he came over and would get up on his hind legs and put his front paws on glass window. It was pretty sweet.


Later in the evening Erin tricked me into going to Meijer with her for about an hour. When we came back Dave's car was in our driveway and I asked Erin why he was there. I knew something was going on but didn't fully grasp it until I walked inside. SUPRISE! Well no one jumped out but it was a surprise to walk into a house full of a bunch of our friends. Erin had planned a surprise poker party for my birthday! She did an impressive job of keeping it a secret and we had a very fun 16 person poker tournament and DDR party.
