Happy Birthday Sis!
Saturday was my sister-in-law's birthday. A date we like to celebrate. In addition to being the sister I never had- she is my brother's greatest love, the mother of Presley, AND, big news, she is growing another baby in her belly. Hip, hip, hooray! My sister-in-law is the family's VIP.
As she wished, we celebrated the day of her birth at the Texas State Fair. It was corny-dogs, popcorn, and funnel cake celebration. The children's petting zoo was worth the price of admission because they had the usual barn animals mixed in with the exotics- zebras, giraffe, miniature Brahma cattle, and strange looking sheep with four horns; they also had goats giving birth and and sow with too many piglets fighting for a tit.
After the zoo, we tried without success at getting Presley to nap. She was pumped up from all the fair fun she could not and did not nap. The birthday girl took a nap. In the evening we met more friends at a delicious restaurant that was not crowded. We had a nice long dinner celebration without feeling rushed.
It was a very fun day. I am so glad we spent the day together.
