Coop's big sister!

August 3rd is Lily's birthday and we spent the whole day yesterday in celebration! I promised myself that yesterday would be a day that of no tears and just celebrating her life and we did just that! We took a short drive down to Callway Gardens to see the butterfly house and then we took Cooper to the Wild Animal Safari which he LOVED! I had no idea that giraffes sloberred so much but I found that out yesterday and almost puked, lol...

Cooper will always know about his big sister and yesterday we read his copy of "Someone came before You" and it was really sweet. Of course, he's only 2 so he doesn't have a concept of death but it's a sweet book. We do talk about Lily to him and he points to her urn and pictures that are on my bookshelf.

All in all, it was a beautiful day for a beautiful little girl!

Coop thought the koi pond was pretty cool!

I'm feeding a giraffe, people!

Coop is totally fearless!

Do you think that maybe he enjoyed himself?

Lol, I love this one!
