Smackyderm

Arlo, Aurora and I went to the zoo on Sunday so Gary could have some quiet time at home and take a much-needed nap (he got up with Aurora on Saturday AND Sunday- wow!).

It was Samudra's first birthday so there were elephant-themed festivities- a cake for the baby, a swim for the baby, elephant ears (both the fried treat and paper decorations) and more. Arlo jumped around in a giant blown-up alligator (crocodile?) jumping thing, while I snapped this photo of Aurora with her new headgear.
(Hopefully the sight of her gobbling her crackers doesn't detract from the cuteness of her oversized ears. I personally think she is cute even when she's gobbling, but I am biased.)
