his second birthday

On Thursday February 7th 2013
my baby boy turned two.
Where those two years went so fast I will never know,
but he celebrated in style . . .



He started the day with presents.
Including new books, a latch board,
wooden blocks from his little sister,
and a superhero ragdoll from Mummy and Daddy.
It was a cold and crisp
but bright and sunny day.
So we bundled up warm
(one of us in a new Hatley coat from Nanny and Pops)
and we took the birthday boy to the zoo.
 He enjoyed watching vultures and owls
and meeting some birds of prey up close.
He rode on pretend elephants with Daddy . . .
 . . . admired real elephants with Mummy.
Before getting really close to a big friendly elephant at feeding time.
He faced lions . . .
 . . . befriended multi-coloured giraffes . . .
 . . . and played "knock knock" with the orangutans.
All in all,
turning two was pretty awesome!
