Charlotte is 4?!? Can you believe it?! I started this blog when I was pregnant with her - it seems like yesterday. Such a little lady, so smart, funny, and a joy to be around. We are so lucky! This year her birthday turned into kind of a big deal. Aunt Ashley and Uncle Perry came to visit for the occasion - which is a big deal in itself! But -- even bigger... they wanted to take her to the zoo! So, Ash, Perry, Charlotte, and Wes played hookie from work/school that Friday and off they went! MM had to work - so I enjoyed text messages and photos throughout the day. They had a blast! It was hot -- but they stayed hydrated and shaded as best they could. All the animals Charlotte had been asking about were there (plus more!). I have a feeling that gift may be hard to top!
