|Post movie birthday party!|
|Today, I am 5!|
This year, for Evie's very special 5th birthday party, Sara and Matt had it at the Cincinnati Zoo. It was a very pretty day and she had some of her closest friends from school and several of her cousins in attendance. Everyone had a really great time. The party was at 10 am so we had the entire zoo to ourselves. I guess most of the public were waiting until 4 and the Lights Festival. The kids made enrichment for the birds in the bird house and Evie got to present hers to the cockatoo in person. They also had some animal visitors. A Hairy Armadillo, which I had never seen or even knew existed and a tortoise (not nearly as large as the Galapagos, but still about 30 lbs.) The highlight however was after the party when the kids played on the outdoor playground! We also visited the new Hippo exhibit. It is very nicely done.
