Weekend Wrap-Up & The Collective

This weekend I had to work an event in Columbus. It worked out nicely since we have friends who live there, so we stayed with them and got to have some fun after work! Here are just some pics from the weekend...

Mom, you're leaving for the weekend? And you're taking that darn dog? Lovely. I shall rule the house for 3 days.

Best part about going north... Gold Star/Skyline Chili! 

We went to the Ohio State Fair. And they had a petting zoo! So Tim and I were in heaven. Duh.

They had Kangaroos?? Normal.

And seals. Even more normal.

The lovely Abby & myself!

The goobers.
