First trip to the zoo!

I realize Harrison is a little young to appreciate or even comprehend the zoo, but Rick asked me what I wanted to do on my birthday and I couldn't think of a better way to spend it. I have always had such a love for animals and I hope H develops one as well. So, I decided that it was time to introduce him to the world of animals. I mean, we have our own little domestic zoo at the house, but that doesn't count!

I was really sick, but with the help of the mini-pharmacy in my purse I was able to stay medicated all day long, ha! It was gorgeous weather and the trees were all in bloom and the three of us had a great time - I couldn't ask for a better birthday! Of course, nothing could ever top last year when I found out I was pregnant, but believe me when I say that I'm pretty glad that didn't happen again this year!!!!

Here are a few pictures from our day:


We tried out sunglasses, but *shocker* they were too small for his head!  :)


 So we opted for the toddler-sized sun hat instead.

Um, what exactly am I supposed to do on this thing?

Thank you, boys, for making my birthday special! The day had a great ending which included grubbing down on some delicious BBQ (food makes me so happy, can you tell?) with the family. Thanks to Mom and Tim for dinner! And I'd like to point out that I picked the cheaper restaurant, unlike somebody we know....*cough*...Connor...*cough*cough*   :)
