birthday boy

today is deacon's 5th birthday!
it is so hard to believe my little precious baby is 5.
it seems like yesterday that i found out we were having another boy.
today for his special day we met up with a couple of my
friends and headed to the houston zoo.

everyone had a great time walking around looking at all the animals

and enjoying everything the houston zoo has to offer
one big event today at the zoo was the debut of the 390 pound baby elephant, Baylor.
we enjoyed watching that adorable elephant

we also had a BIG surprise while we were watching baby Baylor.

this man took our picture and then told us he was with houston chronicle..

and that our picture was going to be in the chronicle tomorrow.

here is the picture that made it in the newspaper:

{leah and hannah, beth and noah, and my precious tristan...can you see the white blur below noahs fingers? well, that's me}

{my friend beth & noah also made it on the news}

to end the day we rode on the train that goes around hermann park.

the boys had so much fun! they wanted to ride again.. and again.
i was way. too. tired. to ride again!

thanks to all my sweet friends who spent the day with us!
we all had fun and can't wait to do it again.

we will always cherish this day with you all!

I hope you had a fun birthday Deacon!
