I can't believe that 9 years ago this guy weighed in at just over 6 pounds and was sick and in the NICU. Look at him now ~ happy, healthy and full of energy! Boy 2 has been such a blessing to our family. He is fun loving, funny, super sweet, has a kind heart and is the smartest kid on the block! I'm so glad I was chosen to be his Mom, he makes me look GOOD! ;o)
Last year Boy 2 wanted Jungle Jim
to come to his party, however, Jungle Jim's daughter has a birthday the same day as Boy 2 and as it should be, her birthday trumped Boy 2's birthday. This year, I called Jungle Jim again hoping that he could come to Boy 2's birthday party ---- that is when Jungle Jim told me HE MOVED OUT OF THE AREA!!!! WHAT?!?! NO!!!! This would be our last chance to have JJ to come to a party, I begged a little, reminded him of last year and really just wouldn't shut-up until he caved and said yes, he would make the trip from Dallas. Thank you Jungle Jim! :o)
Birthday Cake made by B&N Creations
If you have been following me for a while you know I like to have at home birthday parties and we like to go big! This party was no exception even though 3 days later we started packing out for our move to Korea. I did give myself a break and had someone else make the cake (and had Jungle Jim do all the entertaining). If you live in the Killeen/Fort Hood area and are in need of a cake B & N Creations are cakes sent from heaven. Not only do their cakes look amazing, but they taste AMAZING too!
This year Girl & her friend helped make the party food!
Grasshopper Bell Pepper
Bug Juice! Gummy worm ice ring, and plastic bugs in the juice (too bad they didn't float)
Birthday Boy with the Albino Burmese Python
If big snakes didn't eat big animals I would consider letting Boy 2 have one, but I think the first time he had to feed it a bunny he might freak out...
Jungle Jim puts on an amazingly educational birthday party! He is very thorough when teaching the kids about each reptile. He teaches them how to hold them, feed them, what is special and unique about each one. And he is SO GOOD with the kids (and adults). The birthday child gets special attention and always gets to hold/feed first. If you live in the Dallas area this is a once in a lifetime birthday party you don't want to miss out on!
Happy Birthday Boy 2! I love you!
