My original plans for the kids’ birthday this years was a quiet party at home AFTER the kids’ birthday.  Since they’ve been sick on their birthday every year, I thought it was a good idea to wait.

And then my sister got engaged and decided the day after the kids’ birthday was a great day to have her bridal shower.  She’d only have to fly in once  and we could make a weekend event out of it for all the extra family that would come up for the shower.  Great idea.  It really did make the most sence, but there was no way we could all fit in our house.

I searched and searched for something that would work for all of us.  Finding a place to for 11 kids wasn’t difficult, it was the 21 adults that threw a wrench in things.  Then I checked the Kansas City Zoo.  They could accommodate all of use PLUS their package includes cupcakes and ice cream, juice, all paper plates PLUS they would bring in a few small animals for the kids to see PLUS a ride on the Carousel.  Basically, we would just have to show up.  Awesome!!  With everything going on right now, I needed easy. (I did make a cupcake toppers to make the cupcakes a little more festive, but my contribution to the party fit in a sandwich baggie!)

We started with a game of Guess That Animal, and since there were far more adults than kids there, the adults were wonderful and played along.  Any idea what animal Aunt Nancy is?

Then the animals came out for a visit!  We got to see a Lop Eared Rabbit.

We rounded out the party with a ride on the Carousel (sorry, no pictures) and a visit to the new Penguin exhibit.

Oh yea, the zoo even gave each child a baby penguin of their very own – stuffed of course.  Andy didn’t want to let his go!

All in all, a good time was had by all!  I still can’t believe I have three 3-year-olds
