Lets Party With The Animals!!!

This past Sat. was our grand daughter Jenna's second birthday. Her parents, (our son Tim and our daughter in law Amber) thought it would be a great birthday celebration to have a petting zoo in their yard....they were right! It was a blast for young and old, oops, did I say old? HA!

As you can see, one of the animals was a pony and Jenna loved him. Lets go for a ride party girl.


Big sister's Allies turn. Could Allie be any cuter? Why do they have to grow up so fast?


Allie will be five in Dec. It seems as though we just welcomed this little one into our lives yesterday.


Cousin Kyler takes a turn. That's our daughter Kirstin. Kyler is a twin. How did we become so blessed?

Brother Jack isn't too sure about this pony, but in the end, I think he loved it.


I was impressed with the way the petting zoo was organized. I thought the animals would just be running free, but the person in charge told me you would never catch them to leave at the end of the day. Gesh, I never thought of that!!!!
They brought: a cow (you can see the grey animal in the above picture....it's a small cow) two goats, two chickens, two rabbits, two pot bellied pigs and the pony.
Notice Jenna's shirt? It says Birthday Girl.


One of the pigs and two chickens.


What a perfect cheesy smile....


OK, admit it, you can't beat this face!!!


Jack loving it all.


I think the expression on Kyler's face says it all....well, almost. Turns out there was a BIGGER surprise in the waiting. Do you see it? It took me a long time.....


Do you see what's on the back of Jenna's shirt??? YIPPEE, what a perfect end to a perfect day. It was all magical and we can't wait to see what the future holds for us all.

Yes, they do grow up so very fast and it was a neat way to tell you that there was going to be a new arrival. The kids all love petting zoo's. Of course, my older two grandsons each have a pony and the younger one likes to go to their house to ride.
I get to baby sit my middle one when mommy and daddy go to brothers parent teacher conference. He is planning our evening that should be interesting. I just enjoy being able to see them when grandma needs a change of scenery. I go and play with the boys.
Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.
