On Monday we went to the Jacksonville Zoo with the Spencer to celebrate Ada's birthday. We had a really good time and enjoyed ourselves despite the heat. We saw lots of animals, managed to get a semi-decent photo of James and Ada (you can see how many takes it took!) and the kids enjoyed cooling off in the splash area. After the Zoo we headed to St. Johns Town center for some shopping and dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. It was a full day of fun with friends!
We celebrated Ada's 2nd Birthday on Saturday. We started the day with cinnamon rolls and birthday presents from Momma and Poppa. Ada got a swimming pool and a broom that is just her size! After breakfast we called the family in Scotland and Granny Brown, Auntie Stella, and Uncle Russell enjoyed watching Ada open her presents. She received an awesome Little People Tractor to go with her Little People Farm and a new tricycle with a helmet and knee pads. After round 2 of present opening we went for a nice walk and spent some time playing on the playground. Then, we called Dude and Dolly in Saint Louis and they watched Ada get to enjoy her new sand and water table. We spent the afternoon enjoying beautiful weather and playing with Ada's new toys. Bed time came earlier and then Momma and Poppa ended the day with a special dinner to celebrate getting to be Ada's parents for 2 years! It was about as perfect of a birthday as a 2 year old could hope for! We love you sweet Ada Brown!
