Birmingham Zoo

We took Noah and his new BFF, Reagan, to the zoo in Birmingham to celebrate his birthday. We had lots of fun! I'm sharing way too many pictures, but I just couldn't choose.

Boys! They insisted that they play dead in the truck.

What's cooler than a giraffe? Um, boys with sideways hats of course.


Birthdays, Birthdays, Birthdays!

It is a month of celebration for the Dixon Family. All of our birthdays fall between September 13th - October 9th. We began the celebration last weekend with a party for Noah and Micah. Noah is turning 8 and Micah is turning 3! Our family came down from Tennessee and we did the slip-n-slide again, only we tweaked it a little by adding floats. This improved the overall experience by decreasing the incidence of grass burns and bruising. Noah received all things Star Wars and Micah's big gift was a 4 wheeler from Nana and Grandy! Fun was had by all. Today is my birthday and I got a CAR (and a dollar from Noah)! Duane's truck finally bit it, so we broke down and got a new family car. Duane will drive the Expedition now. I'll take picture and post it later.

Can you guess? Who is the mystery clone?
Ty is very brave. I wouldn't be caught dead on the back of that thing with Micah driving.

Noah is doing his victory dance b/c he received all manner of Star Wars junk!

Sophia has this new squinty eyed smile and she has started covering her mouth when she laughs. It's so cute!

Even Grandy and Nana got in on the action! I apologize for my cackling in the videos.
