I can & can't believe we have a 3 year old now. It feels like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital...but it's also hard to imagine a time when Ruby (or Sterling) wasn't around. Just one of those weird, parental time-space continuum sort of things. Like the whole thing about life flying by even faster when you have kids...? Well, it's true.
We thought it would be super fun this year for Ruby to go on a camel ride at the zoo for her birthday. Our family has a membership this year, so it's not uncommon to swing by to see the animals for a bit. We don't always partake in the extra special, paid activities though.
As I look a this photo, I see a Mom setting the birthday bar a little high. Admitting it is the first step, right?
After the zoo, we had a small birthday dinner & celebration with our immediate families at home. We decided that until Ruby is old enough to invite her own friends, we'd avoid the drama of forgetting to invite somebody.
I was fortunate that Sara's baby shower was just a few days prior, so my house was still relatively clean and I was able to carry over some of the party decor.
Happy Birthday, dear girl. You make our lives so very sweet. Hope this is your best year yet! xx
