The Catoctin Zoo

There's a wild life reserve 10 miles up the road from us and it turned out to be such a beautiful day so we finally made it up and it was awesome. We got to pet a kangaroo, a camel, bison and all kinds of animals. It's small but you're so close to the animals that it's more fun than a regular zoo. You're in a little bit of danger so it's more exciting. We also got to do a safari in the back of an old Army truck. I got stung in the armpit by a yellow jacket and it hurt worse than the flu shot I got on Thursday.
Life is busy lately. Corey is trying to make points to get promoted. He got 146 out of 150 at the boards and so he's getting close. I'm taking Biology on Mon and Wed on base so I get home late those nights. Luckily my professor has been super chill and nice so the class isn't bad. I made a friend too. She's from Colorado :)
The summers are great here but unfortunately I had to turn the heat on in my car the other morning and it made me sad. I never want it to get brother and sister-in-law just got orders to Hawaii! Where it's always warm. Krynn is pregnant so they're not going until after the baby so we're planning a trip in April :) I'm so excited for them and to see my new niece or nephew. Krynn calls it the 'bouncy lil' Burt'. My sister is also having a girl on Christmas. My family is getting big but I love it! Sorry, no kids for us...for a 4 years...possibly more.
