Last Sunday, I turned 25. JMO and I went out to lunch and then went to the zoo. It was glorious, I took a million pictures and thought I was a zoo-ographer. I think I should pick up a second career photographing zoo animals. We were greatly entertained by watching the animals interact and watching children bang on their cages and the children’s fathers helping them throw candy in for the orangutan.
When we were leaving the zoo I sent Leah a text message to see if she want to show me her vacation pictures over some pizza. I told JMO I wanted to go home to get my coupon for the pizza, and he agreed. When I opened the door, my favorite people yelled SURPRISE! It was shocking, because I was only here for a coupon and all of these people were at my house and I was sweaty and stinky from spending a day outside at the zoo. Sandra cooked, Leah and Aubrey decorated, Christine and Justin baked a cake, and JMO had kept his secret. I can’t say how lucky I feel to have these people in my life.
My birthday was truly special and memorable. Thank you girls and boys, I love you guys. (Boys are busy watching football during this photograph.)
