Birthday Boy

Last week, my oldest son turned 9.
We celebrated with a trip to the zoo where they had, not only animals, but lots of carnival rides.

The teacups.
The swings.
The flying elephant ride.

Bumper cars!

And more bumper cars!

Birthday cake.

A night walk wearing glow in the dark bracelets.
There were also whoopie cushions, silly glasses, candy, cupcakes and a chance to pet some wild animals.
One of the best parts of the day was getting to pet a baby coati which snuffled around my feet and tried to eat my shoelaces.
According to O, it was the best birthday he'd ever had.
Mission accomplished!


  1. Petting wild animals?? i'm sure that your boy has had a perfect birthday!
