We headed to the zoo on Saturday... along with the entire city of Portland. I had been planning this trip for about a month but it also happened to be the first really nice day in a LONG time, so about 50,000 other people thought taking their kids to the zoo would be a good idea too. Despite the crowds and the heat, we had a great time. Grace's favorite animals were the elephants and she was mesmerized by getting to watch the bats eat. Owen slept most of the time.
|My apologies for this random woman's choice of attire, but with the bear right up to the glass, this is an otherwise great shot.|
We then headed home and picked up some pizzas (and the house) and had a little party with the Horton's, Ea (Andrea), Joel, and Luke and Shelby Todd. Grace requested a Boots cake (as in Dora and Boots). Here is what I whipped up. And yes I did make and decorate the cake myself, although I didn't exactly just "whip" it up.
