Boston had a great birthday. We went on a family adventure to the zoo. It was Boston and Cooper's first time because Mark hates the zoo. When I ask him why, he says it's because it's hot and stinky and sweaty pushing a heavy stroller around. Well, Boston's birthday was perfect. The weather was fabulous and NO ONE was there, I suppose because it was the day after Labor Day and everyone had gone the day before. Mark even enjoyed himself. We went with Grandma Frances and Leslie especially loved that because she had someone to run her nonstop chatter to. Boston and Cooper were just mesmerized and Cooper was trying to make all the animal sounds. Here are some pictures of my garden, the zoo, and Boston's birthday. He got some underwear, a toy snake, some matchbox cars, the book Gallup, his own coloring book, and a pirate ship. The pirate ship has been a big hit and he vigilantly "protects" it from Cooper.
