Joel turned 7 the last week of school! Wow! How do I even have a seven year old? I remember so clearly getting a pedicure and walking all through downtown that afternoon, hoping he would arrive. I also remember clearly that it was thunder storming that evening when we decided it was time to go to the hospital. Anyway, since it was a school night this year, we celebrated Joel's birthday on Saturday. We went out to breakfast, to the zoo, and then came home for presents, cake and ice cream with the Annen cousins. I think Joel had a fun day!
Here Joel is opening his "big" present. We bought him a new swing.
His request was a Nemo cake. Did I do ok??
It was a perfect day for the zoo! The bears were out, pacing up close. The Macaw started dancing when Jeremy started talking to him. The apes were ALL riled up and it was fun/scary to watch.
I'm seven!Joel's current favorites include:
Mac & Cheese
Blue and Pink
Loves water as long as his fingers don't get wrinkly
Loves to play
