Pumpkin’s B’day

OK, so it took me a week, but I’ve made it.

Pumpkin has turned 4, and that meant a trip to the zoo, as we do with each birthday! You’d think it would get boring, but you’d be wrong. Being “Zoo Friends” has been awesome. It means we can go for as little or as much time as we’d like without feeling like we have to get our money’s worth out of the trip like we would if we paid what you have to for an individual visit to the zoo. Some times we see a lot of stuff, others we visit just a little. Having the twins with us at the moment, we tend to keep the visits fairly short.

Here’s a couple of pics from the day.

 We also got to enjoy some birthday celebrations a couple of days early with some cake & fun at home.
The week leading up to Pumpkin's birthday contained special surprises, like this day's breakfast in bed!

You can have all kinds of great presents etc. and the favourite will be a $2 PEZ dispenser that was a last minute extra when you didn't use it for something else.

I bet you already knew that I didn't make that cake. (I have a very talented wife!)
No one’s foolish enough to think I made that cake. (I have a very talented wife!)

So there you go.

We now have a four year old…. and thankfully 6 months before we have to worry about the next (nuclear) family birthday. But I can plan for two sibs in the next week!

  1. I know sometimes it is hard to tell the sex of a very young baby, so when I firsted looked, I thought the photo of one of the twins on Facebook was Pumpkin, when she was a baby to show how much she has changed in the last four years!
