The Weekend

Over the weekend, we had a huge birthday celebration for Jesse, his dad and his grandpa. This year, they are all turning (or have turned) 40, 60 and 80, respectively. Quite a reason to have a party! We had so many family and friends show up; it was a great time!

Then on Sunday I got to take Jesse's cousin from Colorado to the Henry Doorly Zoo. Last year when I went, the new African Grasslands exhibit was under construction. And we were there at the end of the day, so some of the buildings were closed. It was so great seeing all the new animals and I got to go in the Butterfly Pavilion this time as well! I couldn't believe how tame these hummingbirds were!

We were on a bit of a time crunch, so didn't get many photos, but the Aquarium is always a favorite stop. I love all the bright fish and especially the jellyfish.

This coming weekend I get to go wedding dress shopping with my sister-in-law and all of the girls involved in the wedding. I'm cramming in as much fun as I can before the craziness of fall shows and the holidays get here!

What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. Happy birthday to all those guys! It sounds like you're fitting in lots of fun, around your hard work!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful birthday party! Great photo of them :)
    The jelly fish are beautiful. Good luck with dress shopping and happy Autumn :)

  3. That means they all had their son at 20 years old. Congratulations to all !

  4. That means they all had their son at 20 years old. Congratulations to all !

  5. Cool jellyfish! The party seems really cool! My family has really large generation gaps on both sides - I'm 30 but my grandmother is 89! As my last living grandparent, she was also the youngest. My other grandparents were born 100+ years ago now, which is pretty crazy to think about.

  6. Happy birthday to your man! How cute seeing the 3 generations. They were all young dads too. :) This wildlife place sounds like such a treat to visit!

  7. How cool is that? Happy birthday to all! and I hope you get some fun in before the holiday madness!!!

  8. A very good reason for celebration, congrats to all of them! And the picture of the aquarium is amazing!

  9. Congratulations to them all.. a great reason to celebrate.
    I love the jellyfish.. they are so mesmerizing.

  10. Happy Birthday to all! The 20 year spacing is so cool!
    Jelly fish--in TANKS!-- are so fascinating! (I've had enough "up-close-and-personal" share of them.)
