Adela is Eleven!

I can hardly believe it. The birthday season is in full swing. Adela joined our family when she was 2 1/2. We have had some rough years and times when I wasn't sure I was her the best Mommy.

But now we have days like this!

Some of our kids are all about the music, some are all about the sport, some love a good story ... but Adela.... She is all about the people!  She notices everybody and befriends and chats up anyone. One of her best friends is an older lady that lives down the street. One of her favorite things is visiting our local nursing home. She just loves people.

We had a great time celebrating her day. She usually asks for Pumpkin Pie and this year was no different. She just wants pie -- NO whipped cream.

She certainly loved the jewelry Grandma sent -- so grown up.

For her familiy fun time we headed to the Toledo Zoo.

Where the tribe rode the train:

Sat in a polar bear den:

Climbed on a gorilla:

And, well, these are just cute:

Happy Birthday Adelita Bonita...
