Thomas turns 27

Thomas turned 27 last weekend, and we had such a fun time celebrating his birthday. Emily was still there in the morning but she had to head back that day. Before she left, we had a yummy breakfast (baked oatmeal with craisins and walnuts)
and Thomas opened his presents. Someone got seriously spoiled this year.
Jamie checks out the new presents
In the afternoon, we went to the zoo. We got a zoo membership in the summer, ostensibly for Jamie's birthday, but really it was mostly for Thomas :) Jamie had the most fun he's ever had! Ever since then, he's gone around saying "zoo" and listing all the animals he remembers seeing. Too cute!
We had pot roast for dinner and strawberry rhubarb pie for dessert.
Jamie particularly enjoyed the ice cream and has also been talking about that ever since!

We also had a birthday party for Thomas with some of his friends from school. We had dinner and cupcakes (plus I also made cupcakes for him to take to school. . . you know, like a 3rd grader :) I get really into birthdays and holidays, plus I'll take any excuse to bake!) and once again played my new literature board game (who's got 2 thumbs and totally won? This girl!). It was so much fun.

Happy birthday Thomas! We love you.


  1. Happy Birthday Thomas! Sounds like it was a fun day of celebration. I wish we could go to the Zoo.

  2. I wouldn't want to go up against you in a literature board game. :)

  3. Ah the old staple, strawberry rhubarb pie. BTW, I heard there are also zebras in Kenya.
