Every year, we try to throw themed birthdays, and this year we dressed up as animals to party with animals at Roos n More Zoo! We had visited before and learned that you could host private parties there, which sounded like the perfect birthday party to me! There really isn’t any other zoo experience quite like it.
I’m so thankful for the friends who came out, those who drove in from Cali and flew in from SF, Boston, and Atlanta. Do you believe that we accept the love we think we deserve? I realized that I often don’t feel like I deserve that love or to have such great friends. I’m ever so slowly learning to let love in. And whether I deserve it or not, I feel fortunate to have such great people in my life. Thanks for having so much patience with me and being there to celebrate another year.
I kept going back and forth this year thinking how silly it is to celebrate birthdays after so many years (there are so many birthdays.. and unbirthdays!), but I really love having just about any excuse to celebrate and seeing everyone come together to have a good time. I especially love making people do things that might weird them out.. like dressing up as animals. :P
I was too scared to get my camel kiss.
Couldn’t commit like Arthur who definitely got some tongue action.
Thanks Fern for the group photos and for being my unofficial photographer for the day! :) Thanks Jacob for being an amazing husband and dealing with the logistics of it all. That being said, if you didn’t get invited, you can blame him! :P
Roos n More Zoo is probably my favorite place to visit near Vegas where you can learn about exotic animals and even play with them. Check out our previous two posts from Roos n More zoo to see more photos of these cute animals here and here.
Do you like to go big for birthdays?
