Cake and zoo

So we finished off our birthday celebrations for Isla with some cake and singing on Friday night, and a trip to the zoo on Saturday - so much fun.

Here are some photos.
Hope you had a great weekend.

Wholemeal carrot cake with cream cheese icing - Yum!

Birthday celebration candle holder - like the one I made for Liam

I made her a special crown too, like Liam's, and then forgot to give it to her!

We all loved our zoo visit

It's so amazing seeing all these magestic animals in real life


I love how they were just peacefully basking in the sun.

Happy Birthday sweet Isla!

I adore that lovely cake you made her. It is so very sweet and imaginative.

I see you spotted baby Madju playing in the grass on your Zoo outing! He just turned 4 on the 6th of November. I worked for Auckland Zoo for 4 years prior to having Sofia so I know all their names.
