Someone is turning six, and he decided he wanted a zoo/safari theme for his birthday party. As it turned out, it may be my favorite party ever! He invited six little friends over, and we decided to have most of the party outside. They only came in to eat:
Mandarin orange tigers:
When the kids arrived, they found boxes with their names on them:
The best big sister ever was in charge of greeting guests, helping them put on their hats and binoculars, and starting the mask making:
With everyone successfully attired and masked, it was time for the safari. I had made each child a box with a personal list of plastic animals to find in the yard, and they were off:
The kiddos all headed in to eat and have cake:
The party ended with everyone in our backyard playing and just being kids on a swing set. It was perfect.
I can hardly believe my baby is turning six, but I am awfully glad for these safari memories.
