Hippo had a very exciting birthday party this year! Hundreds of people gathered at the Greek cathedral near his house. They played music, cooked gyros and souvlaki, and a nice man fried up a fresh batch of his favorite snack: loukoumades – Greek donut holes drenched in honey and sprinkled with cinnamon.

Later, Hippo tore into his birthday presents: a hippopotamus sports jersey, a really cool diving sub (we think we saw great uncle Happy playing with one in his pool), and a comfy flatopotamus for sitting on and keeping warm.

I detect a hand getting VERY near you in that first picture! Gotta watch out for those ... they sneak up and grab away all the food before you have had a chance to finish grazing.
Besides all that, happy birthday!
