happy 5th birthday Miss O

The Divine Miss O turned five years old yesterday. It's hard to believe. Another year gone in a blink of an eye. She is an amazing and beautiful little girl. And we love her so!

The girls and I picked the boys up early from work and school and headed to the zoo. We spent four hours walking around and saw everything. Fun!! We stopped at Red Robin for dinner and came home to open gifts and eat cake. It was a great day.

Miss O loved the flamingos . . . . . amazingly we got out of the zoo without buying any souvenirs including the adorable pink, stuffed flamingos.

These three crazy monkeys belong in the zoo.

The hippos were fun to watch. I think they've introduced a new little guy. He is restless and kept getting in and out of the water, bugging the two older hippos.

Two cubs . . .

We got to see the baby gorilla. So sweet.

My favorite . . .

It was fun to walk through the butterfly exhibit. I tried out the macro setting on my camera . . . worked great!

We were just in time to see the brown bears and otters get their dinner. It was a hoot to watch.

Here is a rare siting . . . . ME!

J with the kids.
