No Indiana Beach

June 11th, 2006

As you can tell by the timestamp on this post (on the permanent link), we didn’t go to Indiana Beach. I am very disappointed by this, but we didn’t feel like driving two hours each way just to hang out in the cold. It’s only in the 60’s today and cloudy. Throw a lake breeze into that mix and brrrr!!! I’m really getting tired of Mother Nature interfering with my plans. Next weekend? 90’s. But we have the kids. Why does this keep happening? It’s some cruel joke, right?

We ended up sleeping til 10:30 am. Wasn’t much point in getting out of bed. Joe made french toast and we haven’t done anything else except look at the Sunday paper. Haven’t even showered. I feel like I’m wasting my weekend away. I want to go out and have fun but what is there to do? I don’t feel like going to the movies and I feel as if we’ve covered all the good nature-related sites in the area for photography. Ugh, I’m in a rut and I need out!

I guess I’ll go take a shower, but if anyone is reading this, suggestions are welcome. Kevin, maybe you know of some nice places out your way. We’ve been to that little (disappointing) “zoo” in Aurora already, but I’m so bored I’m tempted to convince Joe to drive us there anyway. Even though it’s “cold” out. There’s a Fuddrucker’s on the way back. Heh, like I need to be eating anymore fattening food this weekend. I probably gained 5 lbs. this weekend just from the brownies and chips I ate on Friday night.

    That’s too bad. The weather was a bit chilly, wasn’t it? Personally, I loved it because it’s been in the upper 90s for weeks now, and this week is more of the same!

    Zoo in Aurora? Where? Are you talking about the place I work? I know it’s a figurative zoo, but you’d be deluding yourself to think it’s a literal zoo. Nah, don’t visit.

    Not sure what there is to see out here that is regularly occurring. We’re looking forward to Festival of the Vine which is coming soon.

    I work at a zoo …

    No, I’m talking about Phillips Park Zoo. Went there a year ago and it sucked. Who knows? Maybe one day it won’t suck. But I won’t hold my breath.

    There’s a zoo at Philips Park? I had no idea. I always assumed it was just a pool, waterslides, and golf course. They must not do much to promote the “zoo.”
