I experienced my first official tornado warning last night. Nate and I where laying in bed; Nate was watching the basketball game, and I was reading. It all started when the big sirens outside went off, then the warning on the t.v. came up -which said to change the channel to the news. Of course the first thing Nate did was go outside. I changed the channel and started watching what was going on. I got bored of that so I went outside with Nate. It was too dark to see anything except for when the lightning would strike and we couldn't tell where the storm was even coming from so we went back inside to watch the news. -Come to find out the storm was right to the Northeast of us. Nate kept going out side to see if he could see anything. Anyway to make a long story short the storm came across towards us but moved Southeast. We were in the warning for two hours but nothing happened, it rained really hard for about five -maybe ten min when the storm was on top of us, but once it had passed we turned the t.v. off and went to bed.
It wasn't even that exciting, all though there was a crazy man who was trying to be the hero of our apt complex and was asking anyone who was outside if they were with the FAA. He was like "I've lived here a long time and I know what to do, so listen to me blah blah blah..."
So I guess I can put this down on my list of new and exciting things I've experienced from being married to Nathan! :)

On Saturday Nathan and I went to the zoo with some friends and their two little girls. I had a lot of fun! I love the zoo, and one of my favorite animals are the giraffes. I just think they are so awesome looking. I'm just so amazed at all the creatures God has created.
This giraffe was on a hill, but we didn't really understand why it was standing like this..? I thought it was really funny so I took a picture of it. It kind of looks like a tripod. It totally made my day.
This was the strangest looking animal in the whole zoo. It's an Okapi, a relative to the giraffe and lives in the forest. It wasn't discovered until 1901. It has crazy huge ears, which you cant really see in this picture. Another favorite of mine was the turtles and the GORILLA!
