Katie's Safari Birthday Party

This weekend, we went to a really cool birthday party. I'm thinking Chani's was pretty lame compared to this one. The theme was Dora but focused more on Diego. As we approached we saw a huge bounce house with Dora on the front, and a huge blow up slide. The smell of popcorn was in the air as well. Dora and Diego were hung there on the window greeting all the guests. After everyone arrived, we headed outside to go hunting on a safari. Each kid received an adorable orange backpack, a pair of binoculars, and an animal hat. They ran around the yard searching for little hidden animals. Chani ended up tigers, giraffes, leopards, a hippo and others. It was so cute! Afterwards, they shunned the shoes and jumped in the bounce house and slid down the slide. They also found their way to the swings, slides and sandbox. The kids had a blast! Afterwards, we went inside and had sandwiches and cake and then opened presents. It was quite the creative party.

On our way to the party. It was a beautiful day!

Playing in the Hula hoop with the birthday girl as we waited for others to come.

Ready for the hunt! How cute is this?

Finding the animals! Also, isn't this adorable?

Going on a safari! I think Katie's Grandma made the backpacks.

See the hippo? Chani had a little trouble seeing it.

This LOOKS fun as long at Thorsten is there!

Pure terror!

That was fun! Again!! And, she did a few more times. Poor Chani, Momma forgot the diaper cover. Whoops.

Yummy! Chocolate Cake!!
