Snakes on a kid!

The invite…

…the party!

Our big boy has turned three years old! [insert comment about how we can’t believe how fast he is growing up, how it was only yesterday he was a (not so) tiny little baby]

Alex had his first birthday party with some of his friends from school. We went to the Iowa Reptile Rescue at Southridge Mall and had a wonderful time. The kids got to see and touch some of the animals there, including turtles, snakes, geckos, and bearded lizards. It was a kick to see them get so excited about the animals. The Rescue does a wonderful job and serves a niche in the community.
