It's Great to Be 28!

We celebrated my birthday with a trip to the zoo.  It was so much fun!

The deer forest was one of my favorites.

And monkeys are always a hit. This little guy was staring at us with such soulful eyes I was sure he was about to start up a conversation.

Audrey's favorite was the "petting zoo".  Here we were, surrounded by amazing animals like a Bengal tiger, rhinos, giraffes, and lion cubs.  And all she could talk about was the goats.  Nice.

While we were there, Chris fell in love with this guy.  Seriously, I thought he was going to start begging to take him home.

Behind Bailey in this next picture is a one year old lion cub.  While taking the picture, her brother noticed Audrey and bounded toward her with hungry eyes.  Kind of freaky, but a great reminder of where we lie on the food chain.  

Chris and I finished the day with a huge plate of sushi at our favorite spot.  It was a great way to say goodbye to 27.  I'm excited for another year of life - it's going to be a good one!
