My baby turned one today. She has been such a beautiful addition to our family.
She is the perfect sister for Miss. She laughs at her at all the right times, gives lots of love and hugs, and tolerates Miss's ever increasing "muggings," I mean hugs, fairly well.
So, we went to the small local zoo for a play date. It was kind of dingy and pitiful, but the girls didn't know that.
We also saw llamas, a wolf, elk, a lynx, and some monkeys. Lass is not a huge fan of her stroller, so I was really happy that she was riding in it at the start of the outing. Then we got to the monkey cage, where those noisy things scared the crap out of her, and I had to wear her the rest of the day.
I just had to share the photos of Miss climbing on this turtle. The park I went to when I was little had a turtle just like this, which I had completely forgotten about! Ah, the silly things that will make me nostalgic...
After dinner we had ice cream for a birthday treat, and then Lass opened a few of her presents. We are going to the Farm on Friday and having her party there on Saturday, so we'll take some of her presents there with us, but today she opened the bigger ones that we don't want to take.
I got this Dora dollhouse from Ebay for a steal! The girls played with one of these a few months ago and loved it, and I loved that they could both easily play with it together and that it folds up pretty compactly. Score.
Happy Birthday Lass.
