weekend o' fun.

What a weekend. I needed some relaxation and fun, and this was definitely the weekend for it. Friday night, I went to the zoo for the last zoo music concert. We got to hear Antigone Rising. It was a great time and made me sad that I didn't go to more of them this summer. My friend Leah and I managed to pretty much see all of the animals and I was pretty impressed by the zoo. Now it was no Brookfield, but it was a decent zoo. I guess I would say it was maybe slightly smaller than the St. Louis zoo for those keeping track.

Here are some of the friends I made at the zoo.
I don't know that I had ever seen an aerial view of zebras.


This guy was hanging out by himself in the corner. But he was the only one that would look at us. I enjoyed him.



The little dude was trying to show off to the bigger ones. It was funny stuff.



For some reason I like turtles. Or maybe its a tortoise. Hrm.


This picture was taking REALLY far away but I am impressed with it. The tiger was hanging out in the back.


So Saturday was a normal Saturday with just hanging out around the apartment before counterculture. Tara and I made a pretty cool stained glass window out of lighting gels to go with the theme of being broken glass and reflecting God's light. I know that God is definitely working on me through counterculture and it is a really good thing.

Today, I went and played Ultimate frisbee with the counterculture, which was good times but I was sad that I had to leave early. I haven't played ultimate in a few years so it was good to get back into it.

I left early because I was headed off to the Isotopes game with the youth group from Central. I was really excited because this was my first Isotopes game and I love all the kids that we brought. Little did I know that the excitement was just beginning. The Isotopes were winning, we were in the third inning I believe (I was having a conversation with a 7 year old about the clouds and what they are made of, it was a family affair). So the rain drops started. It was innocent at first, and we were under the awning. And then it began. The rain started coming in from two different directions, the wind whipped around us and they brought out the tarp for the field. Well we're tough, we can handle it. And then it rained more. And got cold. And started hailing. So we rounded up the youth, sprinted to the van in the pouring rain and went back to church. Needless to say, it was an eventful evening. Now I'm home, cold and still slightly damp, but overall it was a really great weekend. The last photo I leave you with was when had decided to leave. I was freezing. So you get the "Laura is cold & wet & really wants to leave" face.

Now, I have seen many faces of Laura. That face, however, is the highest form or Laura that I have ever witnessed.
