This week my prompt as part of the HTC TroopOneX was to write about dream trips. Well the prompt might have been dream “trip” but who could have just one? Not me and the husband who love travel like a fat kids loves cake (to quote 50 Cent.) We have a list of TEN dream trips we would like to take.
And this past summer we crossed one off the list: Iceland!
Look how happy we were to be there!
You may have noticed that I haven’t written about or shared pictures of Iceland. Partly because I had some internet drama happen right around then but mainly because, OMG ICELAND. It’s an impossible country to put into words.
But this post isn’t about Iceland.
It’s about another dream trip. To St. Louis.
You see, our girls turned six last week and instead of a giant birthday party like we had last year we offered to take them on a trip and do what they wanted to do.
So instead of glaciers we saw gorillas.
The actual ones were hiding inside (it was 40 degrees) so we made do with a statue. We also got splashed by a penguin, played through the glass with a baby monkey, and had seals swim over our head. All for free at the St. Louis zoo.
The rest of the girls’ dream trip consisted of mac and cheese croquettes and yogurt for dinner, froot loops in bed, chocolate chip waffles for breakfast, four hours at the Magic House, and milkshakes and pizza at Pi.
It’s funny how dream trips can be so different yet so amazing. I think The Hubs and I had just as much fun on this past weekend in St. Louis as we did last summer in Iceland. Simple can be awesome.
Case in point: Iceland pictures are from our fab Olympus Pen camera and the St. Louis pics were caught with my HTC OneX. Both look darn good to me!
What’s your dream trip?
