December 5th is Ella’s Birthday and she turned 3 years old. In the morning, she had her party at Oatland Island Wildlife Center. You can visit anytime and walk around and see the animals, of which they have quite a few. For Birthdays, you have a private room and they bring in 3 animals to share and educate the children about. Ella chose an alligator (baby), a rabbit and a screech owl. After the animal visit there was cake and snacks and then the children that wanted to when out and visited animals around the center.
Later that evening, the family got together for Ella’s Birthday Dinner. Scott & Morgan take the kids to Miyabi’s Japanese Steak House for their birthdays, they really enjoy that and it has become a tradition. David and Lynn (Morgan’s parents) and Lyn and I typically join them.
