Zoo Animal Themed Birthday Party (G turns 4!)
It was a pretty simple party with just family. Brent's parents and brother were able to come up for the weekend which made it extra special. Also, the forecast was predicting snow so we were concerned the roads would be too dangerous for travel. It actually didn't snow until Sunday so everyone was able to make it!
The birthday boy's favorite zoo animals are cheetah, zebra and elephant. He is super into riding his bike. He is pretty much self sufficient at this age. He can shower, get himself dressed, groom himself and even make his own peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He loves chocolate, pirate stuff, Octonauts, and "reading" his dictionary. He is very social and would take a play date with friends almost any day. He is brave and caring. I can't believe he is 4!
|He is saying, "Zoo!" here. I made this out of cardboard and a safari book of photos.|
|I found these animal drawings at a sweet old lady's garage sale in California. I just made a banner and glued them on. They were perfect for a 4 year old party. I didn't want the animals to look too babyish.|
|G requested yellow cake with chocolate frosting. |
Frosted animal cookies and sprinkles for the top.
In lieu of birthday hats we made our own animal noses out of egg cartons.

|The Walrus wait I mean...scratch that...The Hippo|

|Look at that face! Someone is so proud.|
|G and Uncle Ryan made sure all the zoo animals were present at the party.|
