Kostyn Turns 2. Part 1.

I'm too tired for the obligatory sappy commentary tonight. Check back tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some pics from our trip to Lake Tobias Wildlife Park on Sunday with family. For Kostyn, who is aaaaall about his little plastic animals these days and is rarely seen without one or two of them in his tight little fists (usually the giraffe and the pig, which tragically we actually didn't see there), seeing REAL LIVE zebras and tigers and monkeys up close was about the best birthday present ever. It was a perfect day, and we had a blast.

It was a lot of walking for a little guy. Thank God for Daddy's strong shoulders.

We saw lots of mamas with their babies. On both sides of the fences.

Kostyn's drum cake, made with love by my talented older sister (Mama MacGyver).


I'm including this one because it's the only one we got of Evan -- or Mom! -- all day.

Boys love trucks.

The kid had no fear at the petting zoo. Here he is sizing up a Shetland pony. Incidentally, this is the same look in his eye he gets right before tormenting the dog.

For the most part the goat kids were completely overfed and bored of our petting zoo crackers. Kostyn managed to find a few who took his treats. A few others just tried to eat his shirt. Luckily, he was a good sport.

What a great day we had!!! The weather was perfect, all the animals were out, the kids were super and the birthday lunch and cake was wonderful. A family couldn't have planned a more special day for a 2 year old. It was such fun. even for us ol'timers.
