Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

27 Apr

My little cookie monster ❤


Fun times at Grandma and Poppa’s

He found K’s old bedtime friend. Apparently he liked it too 🙂

We left the kids with my parents and headed down to Key Largo for a wedding. Dinner and drinks on the water.

On Saturday, we left the hotel at 8am and headed to Islamorada for coffee. Chris had never been to the Keys so I figured we could go to another key so he could see a bit more. Well Islamorada turned into Marathon which turned into heading to Key West. 2 hours later, we were there 🙂

After a walk around Mallory Square and a little farmer’s market, we hit up Sloppy Joe’s for a quick drink

We also hit up Irish Kevin’s (a personal fav during my Bachelorette Party)

On our way out, we stopped by the beach and wow. What a view.

We rushed back to the hotel and celebrated Rob and Lauren’s wedding on the beach. Beautiful ceremony!

The boys back together again.

It was a beautiful night spent on the beach in Key Largo

After a fun but quick trip in the Keys, we headed back home on Sunday. We stopped at the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in Miami on the way back. This was a delayed anniversary present to ourselves. This is a private sanctuary that does tours to raise money to help more animals. A few shots!

One of the very cool things about this place is that you get up close and personal with some of their beautiful animals.

Eurasian Eagle Owl. He was so sweet!

Baby pig!

Chris wanted to hold the snake. Me, not so much.

If alligators stayed this size, I would totally have one!

Beautiful baby!

Alcide the Timber Wolf! He was the biggest sweetie!!!!!

Sweet baby Capuchin!

My favorite type of monkey!

Chung, the Lar Gibbon

Look at his sweet face!

One of the big reasons we came to this place was to be up close and personal with a baby Tiger. We had the honor and privilege to meet a few baby felines!

5 week old Bengal Tiger. He has 4 other siblings as well. His mommy and daddy are on property too.

We also got to meet 2 baby Amur Leopards. There is roughly 50-60 left in the world. How beautiful!!!

I am in heaven

We were able to meet Thor, a baby Caracal too.

I could watch all of the play forever

It was one of the coolest and most touching moments of my life! I am a HUGE animal lover and to have the chance to interact with them was a dream. I can’t wait to go back! I just wish they were closer because I would LOVE to volunteer or help them. What a great place that is doing great things for these animals!

As much as I didn’t want to leave, I was sure eager to get home to see these faces ❤

Sweet Hud has caught a cold and wasn’t feeling well. Can’t tell from this picture!

It was a GREAT weekend enjoying our beautiful Florida weather.
