We Were Not Alone On Our Honeymoon (Writers Workshop)

It is customary for newlyweds to take a trip somewhere to have some quality time together, just the two of them. One of the things I liked about Gerard is his knack for putting me at ease and his sense of humor. I loved that he had stuffed animals too when we got married and looked forward to “introducing” them to mine.

We even took some along on our honeymoon with us! The lucky pets who got to come along with us were Patch Dog, Brownie, Snoozer, Leo the Lion and Spotty (my purse). When we unloaded our things at the hotel, Snoozer rolled of the cart and we did not realize it until we got to our room. Gerard ran back down the hall to retrieve him. We even took pictures of our entourage. It was fun! We had a great time!

This post was inspired by the prompt: Share a humorous wedding experience. To read more posts or to participate, check out Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

Cute! I have a feeling my husband would have started running if I brought stuffed animals along on our honeymoon.

I can't remember if we brought any stuffed animals with us on our honeymoon, but we have stuffed a bear in our luggage for other trips. It's become sort of an inside joke. We put Buddy on the bed and take pictures of him vacationing. Bears need a vacation too! Funny story, Karen.

Ha! That's adorable. I hope your pets enjoyed your trip as much as you did.

I've got a Leo (am August born) -- sweet they accompanied you....whenever I have surgery Excy gives me a stuffed animal b/c he knows I'm missing my menagerie so much -- so I have quite a collection now (12!) We have started giving them names combining my surgeon's names. My last one has a hospital bracelet with his name on it...

My husband and I have a collection of stuffed animals that started with a bear, Tim, he got me on our first Valentine's day together. We love Build-a-Bear for the variety of animals.

Loved the story Karen and I remember that fantastic purse from another post you did I think last year. I love it.

Andrea said...

Too cute! I don't think we brought anyone with us, but for ages we did have some at home. :)

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

Mama Kat: I think most men would.

Kathy: Nice to know we are not the only ones who do things like this. We take our Leo the Lion places with us all the time.

Amber Paige: I think we enjoyed our trip more than our pets because they were stuck inside our room the whole time.

Grand Pooba & Mrs. Lovely & Andrea: I'm glad you think so. Thought people might just think we're crazy.

I Wonder Wye: That's cool you get new ones for being in the hospital! Cute that you name them after your surgeons!

Tina: We have close to 50 stuffed animals, but no build-a-bear ones. Nice he got you one for your first Valentine's Day together!

Mountain Woman: Yup, I linked to that post.
