It's great to be 28. Or at least I hope it is. I still have most of the year left to find out for sure.
Luckily the year started out better than I could have asked for.
Ben came home with beautiful flowers--my favorite! They've made our entire apartment smell wonderful (and girly according to Ben).
E and I made a trip to the zoo between naps. Lucky for him, there were 3 buses in the parking lot when we got there so he was plenty entertained as we walked around.
Despite E's completely entertainment at watching kids, I made an executive decision to go see the elephants since they are always my favorite.
As you can see he could care less about the elephant but I thought it was fun!
The only animal he was even remotely interested in was the orangutan, which was sitting right by the glass. I wish I'd gotten it on video because he started barking at it until it was eventually on the other side of the enclosure.
After that we headed home, E took a nap and I got ready for dinner. As soon as Ben got home we took off to Outback up in Bothell.
What a difference a year can make!

I cannot believe how little he used to be! I'd forgotten!

(My favorite picture of the night) We're pals!
My birthday bloomin' onion:
Outback happened to have a special Wednesday menu that made this dinner incredibly affordable. That was a birthday present in and of itself!
Only 361 days left of being 28: I better take advantage!
