For my Dad, who complains I don't appear in many photos.
This may be my new favorite photo of the three men in my life.
They kept yelling "Yee-haw!" while riding the baby rhino statue. Alrighty, then!
Me: Hey look boys - an elephant!
Pirates: Sticks! Rocks! BIG sticks!
Priorities, man. Priorities.
There's a tiger in this photo, I swear. And no, that's not a nickname for Ben.
When your child falls alseep within two minutes of getting in the car for the return drive home, you know it's been a successful trip.
Yup, that's right. No DVD player in the car. We make 'em read books for entertainment. We're THOSE parents.
It was gift time when we got home:
I wanted to get them toy zoo animals, but all the store had was dinosaurs and farm animals. So they have a prehistoric farmyard zoo.
Zoo themed Duplo. See that car on the box? It has been the source of more fighting than almost any other toy they own. Also, yes those ARE new pajamas scattered all over the floor. Lame, but they were totally stoked (Will tried to undress so he could put them on right away).
Due to technical difficulties, we didn't have a cake until the next day - just makes the fun last longer, right?
Yup, they shared a cake again this year. They'll start getting separate ones next year, when they're old enough to say what they want (this year they got The World's Best Banana Cake).
Only 11.5 months until we do it all again!
