Another year has gone by and it's hard to believe she is four years old. I keep hearing/thinking "one more year until school!" How is that possible?
We started a tradition for our kids' birthdays...Gabe and I both take the day off and we do something special with them. Avery is old enough now that we let her choose what she wants to do. We've been asking her for weeks what special thing she wanted to do. Her answer? The Buffalo zoo! Unfortunately the forecast on her birthday wasn't looking too good so we prepped her just in case.
We got up this morning and all got ready to hit the road. It was overcast, but not raining so we headed to the zoo. My friend Megan and her kids met us there, which was really nice! We got there around 12:30 or so and made a beeline to see the baby polar bears they have. On our way we saw the zebras:
|Noah and Leigha|
|A sweaty Cassandra|
|Avery's silly face|

Since it was a busy day, we didn't get to give Avery her presents. So when she woke up the next day, she got to open them!
|She yelled "OH MY GOSH" at every gift!|
|Cass liked the bubbles|
Happy 4th Birthday, Avery! You are such a special girl and you light up our lives every day! We are so proud to be your parents!
