"The sky's not blue, let's go to the zoo..." (and I'm turning two!)

This year L's birthday was quite gloomy out and all morning it was pretty wet.  But, we had a great family day celebrating our big girl.  
L loves animals, swinging, pizza and ice cream (probably in that order).  So, to celebrate her birthday this year we decided not to have a party but, a family day doing things she loves.  We started off the day wandering around the zoo and stopping in to feed the giraffes.  They are amazing!  Laila was pretty cautious, but she did better than expected.

Next stop: swings

stretching!  (she's her mother's daughter...)

After a great family nap time we went to one of our favorite pizza places with grandma and grandpa Birt:

Followed by good 'ol Molly Moon's:

It was a fabulous day and I think she felt really special.
