So today was the much anticipated zoo birthday party. Poppy has been talking about it non-stop for the last couple of days, saying how she couldn't wait to eat cupcakes and see the animals, her cousins and her friends.
How cute are these 3? Ava was Poppy's personal bodyguard and BFF of the day...
The first thing we did was head to the Rainforest exhibit. The zoo provided us with a hostess/tour guide and she was sooo good with all of the kids.
Then it was back to the party room where she brought out a few animals that the kids were able to touch. Poppy seemed impressed with the chinchilla, but wanted nothing to do with the blue-tongued lizard.
After some yummy pizza, it was finally time for singing and cupcakes!
All in all, it was a perfect little party for Poppy. She was so sad to leave the zoo and we've had to promise her all day that we will go back again later this week. And since the minute we got home she's been going through and playing with all her new loot.
Her last words of the day, as she was headed up to bed were, "I gotta go, it's been a rough day mom." Seriously, how does she come up with this stuff?!
