Littlest pet shop party

My niece turned four this month. Instead of spending a fortune at Chuck E. Cheese, my sister hired a wildlife presentation. I have to say, it was the coolest wildlife presentation ever.

The woman was very cool about trusting the kids around the animals which really let their natural curiosity flow. Little four year olds holding snakes, frogs, a gator, pulling web from a spider butt and of course there were bunnies and other fluffy things.

And how nice for my sister (and the rest of us grown ups) to just get to hang back and enjoy the show -- it was show, wash hands, pizza, cake, presents, good day. If you've ever thrown a kid party, you'd know what a bonus it would be to have someone else directing the festivities.

I think it was $225, which is in there with a pizza party, cheaper than a party at American Girl or renting a jumpy thing or hiring a balloon bending clown.

Very fun day for all of us.

BTW - it's a blue tongued skink -- it was so much more fun when I thought it was a skank.

Pulling web from a spider's butt - that's too funny!

And I would definitely throw one of these parties if I had the resources! I'm trying to come up with birthday party ideas for a January birthday, though. Thankfully I have a few years before actually having to throw one that she wants.

Ok if you are Mrs. Robinson, I can be Mrs Doolittle. Call me Mrs Butterworth and that's fighting words!

Katirocks -- The kids loved it. It goes along with an idea we love about "teaching our kids to love nature before asking them to save it."

What an awesome party idea! Love the photos, snake and all, but I have to admit that there spider is freaky! I've seen too many of those things in this valley and I haven't gotten used to them yet.
