Eli's 5th to be trip to the Zoo

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Friday, September 3, 2010 at 5:09 PM

Eli is turning 5, September 9th.  Five years ago this weekend we were putting together a crib for a little baby boy who was not due til October 5th.  This little guy had other plans.  Hurricane Ophelia was off the coast the evening before I had Elijah and my water broke.  That boy was a month early. I had no plans for anyone to take care of Hezekiah....we were blessed that Mark and Melissa Harpold took great care of Hezekiah while we were at the hospital at last minute notice.  Eli, all 5 pounds 14.5 ounces of him with sweet little blonde highlights arrived.  All joy and all boy bundled into the perfect package of fun, giggles, and snuggles.  

I asked Eli what he wanted to do for his birthday.  He had 2 requests, go to the Zoo and go to Sea World.  I like to do my best to fulfill requests so today to celebrate Eli turning 5 we went to the Zoo and we did the things he wanted to do. 

The first thing he wanted to do was go to the lagoon.  So we did. 

We went to the touch and feel tank.

The petting farm. (Yes, there were goats....but also an Alpaca.  From Peru.
