ANYWAY...! Highlights included Wallaby up-close, Baby Gorilla, and Butterfly Exhibit. It was a fun day.
|Gabey was full of questions.|
|The baby was playing in the mote and was hard to see but he came up to taunt his family a few times.|
|Sammy would not leave until a butterfly landed on him. Finally, I broke the rules and picked one up and stuck it on his hand. Then another one came over, landed on top of the first one and they both flew off.|
|Baby bat. Doug uses pictures like this to torture his Bat-hating mother. Very mean of him.|
Since this was his third birthday, (odd year) he didn't qualify for a "friend" party. Instead he got to share a "family" party with his cousin Ashlin who turned 17 the day before he turned 3. Ashlin is his favorite babysitter so he was okay with it!
(Fun fact: they would share a birthday had Gray been born in the states. But since he was born in Japan, his birthday is the day after hers.)
As an added bonus, my sister Karie was in town with her family so they all got to come too.
We had a big party for them at our pool with Costco pizza and cake. Of course, we had our neighbors the L's come over too, cause they're practically like family. All in all, it was a fun day with our cute little tyrant.
