Nathan's Birthday Saturday

On Saturday we had the double birthday party for Nathan.  The first party was in the afternoon with his friends and in the evening with his family.   It was a really fun day.  For the friends party we had a local pet store come and bring animals.  It was really good for the variety of ages we had and I found it very informative.  I learned lots about reptiles.  Like that a snake can "drop" it's tail if something attacks it.  Or that Scaret Macaws can live to be 150 years old and you need to put them in your will.  If anyone is needing a good birthday party idea I really recommend it. 

The anticipation of the animals before the party started.

After the animals we had some crown decorating and cake and presents.
 In the evening I could roast beef and mashed potatoes for dinner.  We had all of his family over and it was super fun. 
I love pictures where my house is full of people.

I included this one becuase Darryl and I are rarely in candid pictures together.  Thanks Tammy
 It was a super fun day and I think Nathan had a great day.  Thanks everyone for coming and making it so special for him.

a pet store that brings animals for a party at home. I've never heard that concept before but the kids must have a blast. How original & fun!

Looks like a good ol' fashion birthday party. I love the crown decorating idea!
