On Saturday, the entire day was all about Nixon. We started the day off right with a big breakfast made by these two, my grandparents. Nixon is a big fan of biscuits and gravy, so this was right up his alley.
Then he got to open presents. Probably his favorite part of the day. :)
I mean...he doesn't look THAT into it, does he?
I had asked Nixon a while back what kind of birthday party he wanted. He told me that he just wanted to go to the zoo with his family instead. And...his wish was granted. We all loaded up and went to the Ft. Worth Zoo for the day.
Our crazy crew ready to hit the zoo!
Those poor rhinos. I felt bad for them because of all the flies on their back!!
This boy is all about T-Nonnie when she's in town. I got a little break from Bowen duties while she was here.
Our favorite part...the elephants!!
The Ft. Worth Zoo has a really cool play area. There is a tunnel covered with rope that leads from one side of the play area to the other. All the kiddos went through. This is Bowen, but Nixon was shaking when he did it. He gets his fear of heights from his mama! EEK!
Sometimes...this is the best you can get, right? hahaha!
This train is my very favorite part about this zoo. You walk to the back of the zoo and then ride the train to the front. I feel like it reduces my amount of zoo walking. :)
We ended the trip with cheeseburgers and fries per Nixon's request. And it was DELISH!!
The night closed successfully with chocolate cupcakes for all and, "Happy Birthday", to this guy.
The next day (his actual birthday) he awoke to a basketball goal and a new basketball. (Which has already gone missing!! BOO!)
Sunday morning BEFORE 7:00 a.m. we were the annoying neighbors playing basketball in the driveway!!
We had such a fun day celebrating Nixon!! Thank you so much to family who made his day so special AND for all the sweet text messages and phone calls wishing him the best day! XOXO
