New Years and a trip to the zoo!

I have been super MIA this past week, but with D having 5 days off, finishing up blog designs, and watching the entire season of Raising Hope on Netflix, its been busy 🙂
New Years Eve in Germany is crazy. They seriously go all out celebrating.
D and I fell asleep at 9pm and set our alarm for 11pm. We are that cool.
We headed out to this huge hill on base where you can see the entire town in every direction and once midnight came, oh my goshhhh. Nonstop fireworks as far as you can see, no matter where you looked.
People were lighting boxes and boxes of them on street corners from 12 to 2am. 
It was the craziest most amazing experience to see that going on. And afterwards we drove around and crowds of people were in the streets lighting off fireworks and celebrating. 
I didn’t think anything could top the fireworks at Disney last year, but this was NUTS.
We tried taking pictures but they don’t do it justice at all.
New Years Day was our Anniversary and we spent it at the Frankfurt zoo.
This stinkfaced high school sweetheart of mine, has been by my side for over 8 years now and I cant wait to see what the next 8 years brings 🙂
Here’s a few pictures from our zoo trip…
Oh! And we won $200 playing slots our first time ever.

Happy New Year!!!
