Post Anniversary Update + Indianapolis Zoo Review

Just realized that I didn't post an update about the fabulous time my husband and I had on our day off celebrating our five year anniversary!

We lunched at home and had lunch-time dessert at the Grand Traverse Pie Company - highly recommend the Strawberry Rhubarb!

Then headed off to the zoo where we got to pet and elephant and dog sharks! I was very impressed with the shark petting area, it was my first time seeing that exhibit since they added it...very cool!

The Komodo's, though, were not so exciting. Seemed like they were in a ramshackle-put-up-at-the-last-minute area...the exhibit was sooo tiny and everything was plexiglass so any pictures you took just got the reflection of the guy standing next to you.

Then headed downtown for a little shopping - my husband got himself a new pair of swim trunks for our upcoming cruise! Which he wears around the house every night now I swear! He really likes them. LOL.

Dined at McCormick and Schmick's...had a marvelous berry lemonade martini and a yummy smore creme brulee - not to mention a fabulous steak! Matt had seafood - I did try a mussell - not too bad. LOL. One really cool thing is that the restaurant had made personalized menus that had a special "Happy 5 Year Anniversary" message printed on it that we got to take home with us! :)

You can also read Matt's take on our anniversary festivities on his blog!

I completely agree about the komodo dragons. For as much as they advertised them, the exhibit was definitely not that exciting. But did you see that they are getting cheetahs!?! That should be very exciting!

Yeah, I did see the signs about the upcoming cheetah exhibit! Can't wait! :)

Were you at the zoo on Monday? We were at the zoo on Monday petting those same sharks, patting that elephant after her bath. We were there celebrating Seth's 8th birthday....
