dinner and zoo.... for lew....

"Lewie!! you're going to be ONE tomorrow," I said to him while changing his diaper before we went into the restaurant for dinner on the eve of his birthday.
he couldn't believe it!!!!

so on we went with our dinner....
Daddy wanted to take our picture. he took SOOO long taking our picture that lewie actually CLOSED his eyes and then opened them again, and thankfully we caught him with his eyes open! =)
i can't even begin to tell you how much food he ate that night!!!! seriously. more than taylor, and probably almost as much as jason.... he burped SUPER loud, and then about a minute later, he tooted.... on his hard plastic booster seat.... which was LOUD.... loud enough for people to hear.... and there WERE people behind us when he tooted. we all couldn't stop laughing.... he cracks us up.

so we woke up on Lewie's bday and decided to go to the zoo. Daddy took off of work and off to the zoo we went. =)

such a cool little bench!

and then we ran into these very scary bugs!!!!
we walked up these trails/hills and got VERY tired, so jason and i decided to stop and rest for a little bit.
so taylor and lewie went to go play....
after our nap, we walked on and found the elephants!!!!
Lewie absolutely LOVED the elephants!!! he was waving and laughing and scrunching his little nose.... it was awesome!
hiiii elephants!!!!
taylor decided to go walk with the elephants.... i wanted her to hide behind the back leg, because it just looked more real, but didn't realize that the elephant statue was anatomically correct.... taylor whispered, "ummm, mom.... its private parts are right there." soooo she posed on the front leg.... much better. =)
i'm pretty sure this guy was trying to find a way to get out so he could attack and eat me after i took about 17 pictures of him pacing back and forth....
then i saw this girl, wearing this dress.... that looked just like this guy.... and she sat on a vibrating zebra chair that was massaging her and her feet.... and there were people taking pictures of her.... and it was just WEIRD!!!! (i totally pictured copyboy taking pictures of her)
these guys were so skinny.... looked so cool. bet they could run SUPER fast if they were out in the REAL open world....

and then i really wanted this super "cool" picture of jason and taylor and this guy.... jason was SUCH a good sport and got under there with a whole bunch of people standing around.... he's such a good daddy....
taylor then took us on a helicopter ride, over ice.
and we saw this sweeet little guy hugging his white cone.... soooo cute!!!!
taylor decided to get her face painted.... with 2 swans.... love her.

then she decided to go climb trees again.
he was beary hungry.... just like our entire family.... we're the kings... we like to eat!
my pretty girl.
posing away.
and posing some more.
taylor and i ran up that little hill there and were playing tag.... we were running circles around jason, who was probably getting annoyed.... we were laughing sooo hard and we were so out of breath!
i heard that male peacocks only spread their feathers when they wanna mate or fight.... either me taking his picture really turned him on, or pissed him off....
lewie tapped out....
so long San Diego Zoo....
we had so much fun....

What a great time and happy birthday to Lewie!!!!

Pat Tillett said...

What a great day! You should be ashamed of yourself for blaming Lewie for "tooting" in the restaurant!

The zoo must be so much more fun with kids! I went there in 2008, but sans kids. Maybe next time I'll have munchkins of my own to bring along. :)

Happy birthday, Lewie!
