Birthday Traditions - A trip to the Zoo

We started a birthday tradition when Madelyn turned one of taking the day of her birthday or one closely surrounding it to be a day to spend together as a family.  That first year we went to the zoo and a tradition began.  This year I thought Madelyn might rather do something different, but she was distressed at the suggestion that we might do something other than go to the zoo.  So, the zoo it was.  This year, the trip included Mommom, Poppop, Uncle Aaron, and Aunt Lauren.  Although it wasn't warm, it was at least sunny and above freezing.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day:
