Maeli's 3!!!...

For Maeli's third birthday, we decided to go to the zoo.  The kids had so much fun looking at all the animals.  We ended up buying a family pass to the zoo, so we'll be going there a lot this summer!  One of my favorite parts of the day was when we were looking at the orangutans.  There was a mother in the exhibit with her baby.  The baby kept climbing the ropes & doing flips, so we were just standing there watching & Kenny says, "I'm getting too bored of staring at the baby monkey".  Yes, I'm glad my 5 year old knows how to appreciate things.=)


After the zoo, we stopped at Chuck-E-Cheese's for some dinner & birthday cake.  Maeli picked a Barbie cake.  Kenny gave her a Barbie for her birthday & the money that grandma & grandpa Howard gave her, went towards a Barbie Jeep!  Overall, Kenny & Maeli were both spoiled rotten all day, so we'll consider it a birthday success.  Too bad Sadie was stuck in her stroller most of the day...not many pictures of her.=(  Bad mom...

i know that I already commented on all of your pictures on facebook, but, it looks like so much fun and I'm sorry that I haven't sent a b-day gift for Maeli yet. I will probably bring one up when I come in July. I'm an awesome aunt!

Looks like a lot of fun. I can't believe she is three. She is so big. We miss you guys already. You have to come visit.
