2016/Apr/16 - Birthday

Today was Kuya's birthday!  To celebrate we all got up early, opened up Kuya's seven birthday gifts, (he turned seven today), then headed off to the Atlanta zoo.

Kuya, Sweetie, and Dodong early in the morning

Even Grump was in a good mood

Grump and Dodong were the first in the car

Uh-oh!  Back to normal behavior

After driving for what seemed like forever, (stupid Atlanta traffic!), we finally arrived!

Dodong, Sweetie, and Kuya at the zoo.  (Lola was looking the other way!)

Once at the zoo, we saw all sorts of weird, unusual animals!

All this walking around got tiring!

 Kuya decided he was a photographer, and snapped several pics.   We call this series a "study of fencing and retaining walls".

After the zoo we drove up to Doraville to the Buford Highway Farmers Market.   If you live anywhere near Atlanta, it is well worth a visit.



Our last stop of the day was at the wonderful Grits Cafe in Forsyth, where we all enjoyed a fantastic meal that we probably can't afford.  (Why is life so darn expensive?)

Even Lola was pleased!

Dodong is always pleased!
