Our Family Life…All Together

Big 4!

Jacob’s birthday was yesterday and it was fantastic.  We had his party at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.  He was so excited.  We first started with checking out the pancake tortoise.  We learned that turtles are the swimmers and tortoises are land walkers.

Then we took a quick walk to the giraffes.  The kids each got a few crackers to feed the giraffes.  They had a blast.

Then we walked over to the meerkats.  There the kids found out that they eat Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.  Then the kids were asked if they wanted to feed them to the meerkats…

Jamie actually volunteered.  She held one of those things in her hand and then threw it over the glass to the meerkats to feast…

We hiked to the merry-go-round and the kids got to take a ride…

We headed back to the Safari Cabin for pizza and lemonade…

And then it was onto the cake.  Jacob was very specific about his cake order this year.  He wanted it to be chocolate, green, and with giraffes.  I think I delivered (read more here)…

He was pretty happy with everyone singing to him.  And then he blew out all four candles…

We had some time for gifts too.  The best part of that was when Jacob’s Little Red-Haired Girlfriend decided he wasn’t going fast enough.  She started getting the gifts out of the bags and handing them to him!

He didn’t seem to mind at all!  Then I caught her slightly touching his arm while he was opening a card.  I’m pretty sure that smile has nothing to do with the card! 🙂

The party was over and the kiddos went home with their parents.  We decided to let the kids pick an animal each to see before we headed home.  I even got in a little photo shoot of my newly 4-year-old at his favorite place…

I didn’t say all the photos were worthy of hanging on the wall…

Jacob enjoyed a few phone calls…

and a few more gifts when we got home…

Then he agreed to snap a few more pictures with his biggest fans…

Happy 4th Birthday, Big Boy! We love you!!
