Celebrating Don's Birthday

14 September 2008

Happy Birthday Don!! We stayed in last night for a quiet family celebration with yummy vegetarian Osso Buco :) and bakery chocolate cake.

Today was a beautiful day so we decided to hit the town. First we went to Seattle Town Hall to see one of mine (and Quinn's, I think) favorite children's singers Elizabeth Mitchell. We have one of her cd's that I sing to Quinn in the car. Here are the boys hanging out.





Here's Elizabeth Mitchell singing and Quinn dancing with a little bit of help.



Then we headed to the Woodland Park Zoo which is very close to Greenlake. There is a baby gorilla that was born just a couple of weeks after Quinn so we wanted to check him out. At one point he was making a little bit of a ruckus and the mama gorilla swooped him up and threw him on her back. Pretty funny! Here are some pics of the mama and baby.







Our little monkey was soooo excited, you wouldn't believe what he did....














OK, maybe you would believe what he did ;) Here are the guys at our first trip to the zoo.
