When you turn 65, that calls for a celebration!
We did it up right this year with dinner at Casa Milagro's on Saturday...
|complete with good food and even better dessert!|
|For his actual birthday we went to the Zoo today. |
It was around 60 degrees and perfect for a day outside.
|Let's do this!|
|First up, the monkeys. This baby monkey stole Cami's heart! He was so cute.|
|The orangutans were pretty sleepy...|
|but the rhinos were on the move.|
|So far so good!|
|Cameron liked the antelopes...sort of!|
|She kept asking to go back to see "more monkeys," so we did. Hello Silverback gorilla:)|
|It really was one of those rare days. They were all being so good. Hallelujah!|
|All four kids got along great the whole day. Let's go see some elephants.|
|Cameron just wants to climb like the big kids.|
|Big sister thought the elephants were cool--much unlike little sister, who declared "elephants--scared."|
|The rest of us thought the baby elephants were so neat.|
|We were at the zoo right after they were born and they are two years old now. Guess that's right, because I was pregnant with Cami back then. My how time flies!|
|We all loved watching the giraffes, ostriches and ducks.|
|This is my favorite spot in the zoo. So pretty!|
|The white tiger might have been the coolest animal we saw, though.|
|Cami kept calling it a "big kitty" and meowing at it. Yes, baby girl. That is definitely a big kitty!|
|The tigers had a beautiful area to lounge about in...|
|and one even crossed the river to come see us.|
|We saw the lions, too. No daddy lion this time, but we did see the two babies.|
|After that, we fed the birds...|
|which everyone enjoyed.|
|After all that, we ate lunch in the Wild West and then hopped on the carousel.|
|This kid was LOVING all of her firsts today--she got her own horse this time, too. |
Where did my baby girl go?
|We decided to take the train back to the entrance and bought tickets on the Yellow Rose Express.|
|The birthday boy and his bride enjoyed seeing the horse and longhorn...|
|and in a few minutes we were done. We got to see the flamingos on our way out. |
They are really beautiful, but pretty darn stinky!
Happy Birthday, Poppi! 65 looks good on you!
