Because I’m turning 5 today I got to choose today’s activities. I had been planning this for quite some time.  First stop, Rainforest Cafe.

I kept my hood on because it rains in the rainforest.

I told the waiter it was my birthday and so after lunch they gave me a cupcake and sang Happy Birthday to me.

I told the waiter it was my birthday and he rounded up some of the guys to sing Happy Birthday to me.

And gave me a birthday cupcake.  Which Mum made me share with Rafa.  So he better share his on his birthday.

My next request was for a carousel ride.

I had to remind Mum that I still needed a home cake.  She came through with a big cupcake with a snowman and snowflake ring.  I still had to share with Raffy.

I reminded Mum that I still needed a home cake. She came through with a big, blue cupcake topped with a snowman and a snowflake ring. I still had give a bit of that one to Raffy too.  I hope he remembers that on his birthday.

It was a special day.

The day went perfectly to plan and I got everything I wanted.

The Galleria and a look back at 4 years of blogging

March 9, 2014

The clock had to spring forward an hour today but sadly, spring herself is yet to arrive.

So we headed into the Galleria to peer through the windows of Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Luis Vuiton, Versace, Bvulgari, Burberry, De Beers and Tiffany's, to name a few.

So we headed into the Galleria Mall in uptown Houston to peer through the windows of Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Luis Vuiton, Versace, Bvulgari, Burberry, De Beers and Tiffany’s, to name a few of the shops we weren’t allowed to enter.

We stumbled upon a rainforest downstairs where we had lunch.

We stumbled upon a rainforest downstairs where we had lunch.  We were most welcome there.

All the animals in the rainforest were very friendly.  We were welcomed by a snake and a monkey kept swinging on the vines over our table.

All the animals in the rainforest were very friendly. Especially the monkey that liked to swing on the vines above our table every 15 minutes.

After lunch we watched the ice skaters.  I wanted to have a go but one of my parents didn't want to get on the ice.  We'll have to wait until we can convince another adult to come with us.

After lunch we watched the ice skaters in the mall ice rink. I wanted to have a go but one of my parents didn’t want to get on the ice. Sigh.  I’ll have to figure out how I’m going to get around that.

Today is also my blog’s fourth birthday.  This is what we were up to on March 9th 2013 when the sun came out, briefly, in Portland.  March 9th 2012, the day Abuela returned to New Zealand after she visited us when Rafa was sick in hospital.  March 9th 2011, when we still lived in Brisbane and my very first post ever, March 9th 2010.
