Meghan joins me today as a “late 20 something”! To celebrate her birthday we’re going on a weekend excursion to Lake Baringo. Its meant to just be a relaxing time away from all the “hustle and bustle” of Kenyan life. Oh wait, no, we don’t have any hustle and bustle. I guess we’re just going for the pool and to get a close encounter with a hippo or two!

Meghan and I went to Lake Baringo in 2009 but stayed at a different hotel. When going out on our (rickety) canoe tour we passed by the Soi Safari Lodge and wished we had stayed there! So this time we’re doing it right and staying at the much higher quality hotel!

Eden turned one on December 12. Ben and I made pancakes for breakfast which she gobbled up and then we had a small get together in West Lafayette with cake and presents. Eden loved being the center of attention and totally showed off for her guests. She is much more steady when walking now and cracks up when others mimic the sounds she makes.
As you can see, she was not shy about digging right into her cake! She started with the icing and had quite a bit of that then started in on the cake. She had so much fun that by 3:30 she was sound asleep. I’ve posted several pictures from the day…enjoy!
