It’s ma-birthday! It’s ma-birthday! Well, actually it was my birthday two weeks ago, but what’s a week? I have no clue, so as far as I’m concerned, it’s still my birthday! And I am now officially TWO YEARS OLD!

To celebrate my birthday, Mom and Dad took me on a trip! The whole family flew on a real airplane, to CALEEFOR-NEYE-AY! That’s right, the Golden Gate welcomed Tess and her clan in style!

We stayed at my cousin’s house, which was awesome. They even threw a birthday party, just for me!

I got lots of neat stuff. My cousin Pia really liked some of it…

Maybe some of it a little too much…

We also had an action packed week. Mom had to work most of the time (BORING!) but Dad, Story and I did the bay area in style. We went to the Discovery museum..


and the zoo…where we saw tigers….

and goats…

We did so much it was really quite exhausting! But each night, my cousin vivi read me bedtime stories…

And all the Straws got to sleep in the same room, which was super cool.

Anyway, it was a great trip, but I’m glad to be back in Maine with all of my toys and my own bed.

Well, I better get to bed, this TWO YEAR OLD needs her rest!
