Beco (long e) was one today.  A first birthday party was held at the Columbus Zoo.  We got there late in the afternoon.  Saw the carved ice sculpture but not the creation of it.   A piece of the trunk had broken off. He’s an Asian elephant.

His name and a number 1 still visible! When we got there no one paid much attention to the ice sculpture. The line into the Elephant House was loooong!
