happybirthday

IT'S NOT THE YEARS IN YOUR LIFE THAT COUNT, IT'S THE LIFE IN YOUR YEARS*

Happy birthday to me! haha! Woken up just after 7 a.m. to singing and hugs and presents. Spent the day with family and friends at the zoo, we watched the seals get fed and admired all the little animal babies. The zoo was crawling with baby animals: wolf cubs, lynx kittens, wildcat kittens, fox cubs, otter pups, kids (goats), lambs, wild piglets.

We got home around 3:30 and power-napped for an hour, then made dinner and went to the grocery store and afterwards I frosted the spice cake I'd made yesterday with home-made buttercream almond frosting: YUM!

The boys are outside extending the porch with the tent to seat 25 people for a big crayfish party tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed that the weather cooperates...unfortunately it's rain on the forecast again. Bah.

Thanks to all who called and emailed and posted birthday greetings! It isn't every day a girl turns 29! :)
