We hadn't had a big birthday party for the kids in quite a few years, so we marked two fifth birthdays and one seventh birthday with one big party at our local nature center. It was a perfect location for 25 kids, and we all had so much fun.
Adorable cupcakes made by my stepsister, Sateen.
Adam and Anna in the room that houses all of the animals.
I set up a "make your own trail mix" bar for the kids that was very popular.
We also had some coloring and crafts for the kids to do while we waited for everyone to arrive.
Then the nature center helped all of the kids make an animal print.
Next they did a series of animal encounters with about 6 small animals.
And last we went on a short hike.
