Chris and I both took the day off from work for Jane’s birthday last Wednesday. We took her to the Louisville Zoo, did a little shopping, and then ended the day at Mom’s for a cookout. We both took the day off for her birthday last year, but very little fun was had. As we were headed to the Children’s Museum in Indy, we ran over a ladder on the interstate. We spent most of the day getting the car fixed, but luckily no one was hurt! This year was much better. Here’s a quick and dirty of our recent festivities.
The birthday day started off with a big a$$ Elmo balloon:
Then we had cupcakes for breakfast (made with love by Daddy):
And finally made our way to the zoo:
Where Jane made friends with a lizard thing:
After that, we saw stuff:
And then some more stuff:
And, wouldn’t you know, we ran into Elmo again!
Then on Saturday, we had her birthday party with the whole family:
Where Mommy made her pose for a senior picture by a tree in her now stain-free birthday shirt:
And the rest is just a blur of pizza, cake, presents, kids, and wine. What a wonderful birthday it was!!
Love you so much, Janey-Me. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you!!
