Corbin is 5!

When your almost five year old tells you that he wants to take his birthday photos at the zoo and wear a “helicopter hat,” there is really nothing you can do other than oblige. Corbin and I spent the morning at the San Diego Zoo and he took me to all of his favorite spots. Many of those spots were not animal exhibits, but rather the Skyfari ride and the playground because those are his happy places 🙂 My favorite spot we encountered was the walkway into see the monkeys. I loved seeing the hanging monkeys above echoed by my little monkey hanging on the rail below. It captured him exactly as he is! It was the perfect morning to remember and celebrate his fourth year of life and the start of his next. Happy birthday to my sweet baby who will for the record, now only be referred as a “big boy.”
