We Went to the Zoo!

I don't know how it happened    . . .
but I seem to be a bit behind schedule and
so, am finally just now posting
about our celebration of little Walt's
2nd birthday and Mother's Day!
Actually -- let's blame the stormy weather.
The month of May and early June
was thundery, rainy and even tornadic
around here, so we had to reschedule.
Peek-a-boo Mr. Gorilla!
Anyway, little
Mr. Adorable Walt
turned 2 on May 19!!
Almost everyone is looking at the camera!
Oh my word, he is simply the spitting image of
his Dad as a kiddo!! 
Couldn't you just pinch those little cheeks!
We started our celebration at the Omaha
Henry Doorly Zoo -- one of the top
zoos in the country!!
The male lion roared at us!!
And wow -- what a roar!!
Then his wife came over and gave him a nudge as if
to say:
"Dear, we have company,
please stop the roaring!"
And then he stopped and just paced!
Loved the bears and monkeys and
gorillas and we must go back
to see more and ride
the fun Skyfari!!
It's so nice to have a big sister to help open gifts!
More partying at Walt's place with
pizza, cake and cookies!
Have a wonderful year Walt --
isn't it fun being 2!
