happy birthday, pop! (almost)…

it’s not actually pop’s birthday until july 18th but since jon & co. and louis & co. were both in natchitoches, we decided to celebrate a little early.

with cake!

it might have been hot; we might have been sweaty but we went to the gator park anyway!

hmmm, clearly jasper is thinking, “mama, it is TOO hot to be taking so many pictures!”

which is just not true at all.

the bridge was segmented so it moved and swayed when you walked across it so, of course, that means jasper stomped across it.

and stomped hard.

“oh, man, mama!  it stinks in here! pee-ew!”

yeah, i would have to say the reptile house did smell pretty funky.

the pictures of juliet dancing her little heart out were all blurry but i did get pictures of jon and gram enjoying the show!

you can’t hear me (or maybe you can) but i’m gritting out, “take the picture already! see?  i’m smiling!”

by this time of the day, i was in complete agreement with jasper – it really can get too hot to take pictures!

thanks, gram for taking us all to the alligator farm!
