Birthday spent at the zoo


What a lovely, sunny, glorious day spent with the sweetest little man.  



Finn Henry was very excited when he heard that our day would be spent at the zoo~



The line to get in was a long one, but he was a trooper, waiting patiently...




First things first - we had to study the map and plot our course!




Then, a filling lunch to give us the energy we would need to walk the entire zoo.




There were so many animals to see - the elephants, the giraffes, the zebras, the monkeys and apes, the tapirs, the penquins, the lions, the tigers...




Thankfully he was wearing his trusty sun hat as it was a bright one out there!




Look Mommy - I see a hippopotamus!




He was pretty happy that he found an elephant just-his-size!



Just like the brothers before him, the Komodo Dragon was one of his favorites!




Wasn't he excited to see that there was a sculpture that he could ride just outside...




Just as we approached the exit, we saw that someone didn't want us to leave...

We had such a nice time, especially as the weather was beautiful!  

Time for cupcakes and ice cream~

How lucky you were to see a hippopotamus! I think that brings a whole year of good luck for a birthday boy.
