it's all happening at the zoo....

I spent my 40th birthday with family at the Bronx Zoo, then we went to dinner at a favorite Italian place, then back to the parents' for birthday cake and presents. I was joined by the Forebearance -- girasole, helgabee, bronxbob350, and the Infomancer -- as well as the Godmommy, suricattus, and, of course, terri_osborne.

I took many many pictures, of which these are only a few:

























In addition, the Infomancer took some pics of his own.

terri_osborne and I looking at, uh, something:


girasole and I (with the Infomancer taking the shot reflected in my sunglasses):


girasole lighting my birthday cake while suricattus and the Godmommy look on:


The entire day was WONDERFUL, exactly what I was hoping for. Terri and I hadn't yet gotten to the new Madagascar exhibit, so getting to see that was a treat, and we hit many favorite spots besides that: Tiger Mountain, the sea lions, the penguins (both of those last two right at feeding time, too!), World of Birds, World of Darkness, World of Reptiles, the polar bears, the brown bears, and the bison.

(BTW, suricattus took some pictures of her own..............)

Then to one of our favorite restaurants for a phenomenal dinner, then a most magnificent cake.

And a beautiful cake it was:


The day was everything I was hoping for. Me am happy 40-year-old. *grin*
