Frogs and Fairytales at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo

My precious little princess Thyme just turned TWO YEARS OLD over the weekend!!

Since we spent WAY too much money on Tessa’s 3 year birthday party, we learned our lesson that until the kiddos are older, smaller and more family oriented is the way to go when the kids are so young.

So instead of a huge party, we invited immediate family and attended the annual Frogs and Fairytales event at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, where kids are encouraged to dress as princesses and knights, and meet frogs, snakes, turtles and lizards up close! Our kids had an absolute blast.

Here are some photos of Thymes birthday at the zoo!

    This looks like a wonderful idea. Actually, I may take my 6 -year-old to the zoo for his upcoming birthday. I decided 2017 is a family party year, until I get my earning power up…

    OMG that crown, so freakin adorable. Happy Birthday Thyme!!!!! I like the idea of having a intimate party for younger kids. It’s special they can enjoy all the hoopla later in life. Family is so important. This Frogs and Fairytale event sounds like something even I would love. She is such a cutie Gingi.

    I’ve been having trouble commenting on your blog. Your blog thinks I’m spam.

    I’ll try again on my laptop and see how that works.

    What a wonderful day for a princess.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

    That sounds like a great way to make kids more comfortable with nature and animals, something a lot of kids miss out on these days.

    How exciting! What a great way to celebrate being 2-years-old! I’m finally learning to just enjoy every minute with my girlies, time (or is it Thyme =) flies by so quickly. And with baby #3 comes in the weeks ahead, I know I’d better celebrate every minute of it. And who said money can’t buy happiness…..$50,000 in infertility treatments and 4.5 years later (and lots and lots of prayer) and we have a baby!!!
