The AWESOME Hogwarts cake Mike and I created. Hagrids hut is on the left, and the spiders are headed to the forbidden forest across the way. 2 small lakes, a pathway leading to the castle that is up on a 3 tier hill, and rice kripy quidditch area made a small boy very happy. And it tasted yummy too!
And the smile says it all. I had convinced him that all the stores were sold out of Diagon Alley, and that it was too expensive anyway. So the very last present he opened was the one he had been asking for all along.
Happy 7th birthday Nicholas!
You are incredibly funny, super smart, and a great LEGO builder. You love your brand new baby sister with a fierceness, and can't stop hugging, kissing, and touching her. Even when sick.
We love you!

We finally had some nice weather here, and the kids and I decided to take advantage with a trip to the zoo. While we always go to see the Red Pandas, Meerkats, and Elephants first, this time we went the opposite way and saw the birds, zebras, and the children's zoo. Emma spent most of the trip asleep.
