Rather than having a birthday party to celebrate baby girl’s first birthday, we opted to take her to the zoo instead. I am dead set on trying to avoid party planning as long as a possibly can before my daughter realizes I do not possess a creative bone in my body. (Take that, mommy bloggers!)
So this worked out really great.
I’ll confess, I think my husband and I had more fun seeing all the animals than she did but overall, it was nice to spend the day as a family. The weather was great, it wasn’t too crowded, and Ladybug was in a good mood for most of the day. She was especially excited to see the penguins and the elephants.
Overall, I am immensely grateful. We just finished up a stressful semester with school and work and sick baby in the last month so this was a welcomed break from our usual grind. It’s good to know we still remember how to have fun as a family.
I can’t wait for the next Little’s Adventure!
