We had so much fun at the zoo on the Saturday before your birthday. You were careful to point out that you weren’t five yet, but that we were just celebrating your birthday on that day so everyone could come. We met everyone outside and then you got to parade in as the line-leader. You got to pet a tortoise and a ferret and because the zoo was already geared up for Boo at the Zoo, the carousel went around backwards!
On Wednesday, your real birthday, you helped Mommy make your birthday cake. It was a chocolate Hello Kitty cake with a blue eyes and a blue bow. We had several little gifts for you but by far the hit was the airplane with real bullets. 🙂
You’ve grown to be such an inquisitive and intelligent little girl. Mommy and I are so very proud of you.
