What a fun filled day for Cole as well as the rest of us. DJ and I were so excited (maybe Dad was even a bit more excited than Cole). :) Cole's morning began with balloons and a cupcake for breakfast. We were actually a bit impressed he ate the cupcake given in the past he hasn't shown much interest in cake or other sweets.
Cole could only open a few presents before heading out the door to the Albuquerque Zoo/Aquarium. He would get so excited and tear into one and then laugh and start tearing into another before the 1st was completely open.
We thought he might take a snooze on the two hour drive but the cupcake had him so wound up. He chattered the whole way down and grinned ear to ear when we sang him "Happy Birthday". Cole knew he was the center of attention today - he may not have known it was his birthday but he knew something was different. Anyway, he finally fell asleep right as we were pulling into town!
We started with a train ride to the aquarium - very exciting for the little guy but my goodness was he excited to see the fish. DJ and I couldn't think of a time he was more excited. He just laughed and laughed to the point where passer bys where laughing with him. Cole was really excited to see the "Agua Neigh Neighs" -Sea Horses! Soo funny.....
