Today, July 7th, is ADOPTION DAY for our family. Two years ago we finalized Jakob's adoption and became a FOREVER FAMILY! Here's some of the fun we had today celebrating at the zoo!

Jakob loves the flowers and would probably prefer to look at them over the animals any day!!

We got soaked. . . but the weather was perfect for the chilly water! We were able to recruit many others to join in our fun!!

Jakob ABSOLUTELY LOVED the butterfly garden. He did not stop yelling "Butterfly" the entire time we were in there. So much for a peaceful stroll for the other visitors. The workers were excited that he was so interested!! We will definitely have to go back with charged batteries so I can actually get some pictures of all the beautiful butterflies!! Don't you just love it when your camera batteries die?

Then we came home and ate lunch. He was so worn out!! When it was time for nap. . .Jakob went into his room and climbed into his toddler bed. I asked him if he wanted to take his nap in there and he said yes. So, I shut the door and he seemed to go to sleep after a little chitter chatter. I didn't dare open the door to see if he was still in bed. We will see where he ends up in a couple of hours. He is getting to be such a big boy--(heart goes pitter patter--*sniff, sniff*).

I couldn't help myself. . . but I had to peek in Jakob's room and he is sound asleep in his toddler bed. . . . so sweet! I didn't take a picture because I didn't want to wake him up. My little baby is growing so fast!
