Anna's half birthday (a little bit early)

Anna's 'half birthday' always falls right around Thanksgiving and just before our anniversary. This year we wanted to avoid feeling like we were squeezing it in during the holiday season . . . so, we celebrated early!

Anna had been talking for weeks about wanting to go ride a horse or a pony. She also regularly tells us that she wants to see various animals (zebras, giraffes, monkeys, etc) ~ not your run of the mill suburban pet store animals . . . clearly zoo material! And (drum roll please!) the day we had set aside for our special time with her happened to also be a ‘free day’ at the Denver Zoo =)

We wrapped up our time with some ice cream and a quick stop at Chuck-E-Cheese (mostly because we had some extra tokens). Fun, fun, fun with a sweet, sweet little girl!
