Always Take Your Camera To The Zoo

Lesson to be learned: Take your camera everywhere you go. We went to the Indy Zoo today, and didn't bring our camera (thinking we wouldn't need it), but wouldn't you know- all the animals were being excessively cute and out!

The lionesses were talking to each other and cleaning each others ears while the male of the group marched around; the red pandas (which always sleep) were strolling about being super cute, and we waved at the grizzly bear (don't ask) and he waved back. No joke.

So boys and girls, always take your camera with you. You never know where adventure could lie!

Halloween in August?

(Image via here)

Yesterday we were doing some shopping, and stopped at Michael's to look around. And wouldn't you know it- there were Halloween decorations, crafts, and candy. Really? It's August. Maybe that's not so bad, but then we walked by an isle that had some Christmas decor out! Let's finish summer first!

Where Would You Go?

If you could go anywhere in the world right NOW, where would it be? Money is no object and work doesn't get in the way. Would it be somewhere hot? Cold? Historic? Luxurious? Modern? Rustic?

Would you go alone or take someone with you? Where would your wanderlust take you?

Our Adventure Through The Indiana State Fair

Yesterday we went to the Indiana State Fair, and we definitely indulged our fried food needs. Here's our journey through photos (mind you, we split the food delicacies). Enjoy the largest pumpkin (over 1000 lbs), world's largest boar (over 1000 lbs), and fried butter- among other interesting things.

Fried butter (surprisingly not gross)

The doughnut burger

True Blood Tastes Like...

Today we decided to scout out some True Blood (featured on the show, True Blood). We are huge fans of the HBO hit, and were excited to find out that they would be marketing the imitation blood drink to fans (in real life it's blood orange flavor).

So after looking on HBO's website (so expensive there with the shipping, find it in stores instead) and deciding not to order from there, we found out that it was available at Border's. And while it's expensive ($5.99 for one bottle), we're hoping for the price to go down. So are you excited to try some True Blood?

Happy adventuring!

Wisconsin Adventures: Jelly Beans, Cheese, and Fun

Our apologies, dear readers, for not updating ALL weekend. We were in a part of Wisconsin that didn't cater to the internet, but boy did we have fun.

On our way up, we made two pit stops with our tag along M. The first, an Arby's with an interesting wall (see photo below). The second stop was at the Albanese Candy Factory in Merrillville, Indiana. M was blown away by the giant chocolate fountain found inside, and like us, recommends this as a stop for anyone passing through Northwestern Indiana.

After reaching our destination in Wisconsin, we spent the weekend enjoying drinks and good company. We also made a special trip to the Jelly Belly Factory where we enjoyed a free tour (less exciting than it sounds, since it's basically watching videos while taking an electric train ride) and free samples. Afterward, we made a group trip to the grocery store where we picked out some delicious Wisconsin cheeses and food for the weekend feast.

All in all a great trip. So, how was your weekend?

Happy adventuring!

A Comic Adventure

Departing for the Cheese State (that's what they call it, right?) in a few hours with our friend M. It should be pretty interesting- our first tag along to our car adventures!

Adventures in Movie Watching: Inception

The other day we went to go see Inception, and trust us- it is the awesomeness that everyone claims. Good acting, good story line, good visuals. An action thriller mixed with massive thinking. As Peter Travers from Rolling Stone said:

"Mind blowing.....James Bond meets 'The Matrix'"

So take our advice. Go see it if you haven't already.

Well...what are you waiting for?

Happy adventuring!

Cheese, waterslides, and....

(Image via here)

This weekend we're headed to Southern Wisconsin for a friend's birthday. Any ideas on places we should check out? We were thinking the Jelly Belly Factory (who doesn't love candy?).

So what parts of Wisconsin do you love?

Happy adventuring!
