Joseph's friend Benjamin recently had one the the Coolest. Birthday. Parties. Ever! The great cake his mom made should give you a big clue as to the theme.
From somewhere in Pennsylvania came a petting zoo of 15 different reptiles. Joe Joe, not really understanding what was coming, and not being a fan of loud performances, literally turned his back on the show when I wouldn't let him actually leave.
But then he heard something about seeing and touching a little baby turtle, and he was hooked.
One by one came a parade of various turtles, lizards, and snakes, each bigger and more fascinating than the next. Every kid wanted to touch every one!
The grand finale was a giant boa constrictor that the birthday boy had to help haul out of its crate.
The biggest treat was that the kids got to line up and hold some of the animals after. Joseph especially loved the bearded dragon.
Benjamin, being the guest of honor, got to hold the giant lizard in his lap and get wrapped up with the constrictor. No fear!
All in all, one of the most exciting kid parties we've been to! And it's the 1st of many we've attended lately. Get ready for more....
