This is fun. I think I must start a new birthday tradition at our house.

I can think of no one better to share my husband with than B! I love a three-year-old that wishes for things like trout.

Jennifer said...

How often are you guys eating trout these days? Is it trout mania in the Giles family? I love that both kids mentioned trout. Can you dedicate a blog to this?

The Hen said...

The importance of trout in our lives has been WAY overstated. I think we ate it twice last summer, but what a lasting impression on my little friends.
