Birthdays are a Finer thing {and a GIVEAWAY!}

So this past weekend we celebrated Caleb's 3rd birthday!  Hard to believe that my sweet baby is 3.  Well, he is still the baby and until about a month ago he was CONVINCED his name was Baby, but that is a different story for a different time...

This year we decided to try something different and have a location party.  We called the local petting zoo and set up the party.  It was AMAZING!  They had animals for the kids to pet and feed.  The kids were able to get really close to the animals and they LOVED it!  They even rode on ponys.

The Backyard Barnyard Petting Zoo is located in Danville, Alabama and is a great party location as well as outing.  If you are in the North Alabama area, you should check out their site for more information and directions - Backyard Barnyard Petting Zoo.



While we were there, one of Caleb's friends got the sweetest llama kisses ever!  This llama, Freckles, is HILARIOUS!


Birthdays are a great time for friends and family to get together and enjoy each other.  Family time is TRULY a Finer Thing.  Be sure to stop by Amy's Finer Things this week for more Finer Things Friday.

  6. In love the animal shirt. Of course, my baby, the one who wants to be an "animatarian" (vet), is going to be 7 on his next birthday. Do you make shirts for that age? He'd love it!

  7. My best birthday was a summer pool party when I was 6 or 7. We didn't have a big pool, just a wading pool, but my mom planned all sorts of fun games... and then she dropped my new watch in the lemonade. It was still a great day!

  12. My fave birthday was my daughter's 1st - she's my one and only girl :) and it was fun to do everything girlie! Her Daddy was able to be here (he's a Marine) and all our family from VA too. We had the cutest ladybug cupcakes that turned all the kids faces & hands bright red. But, they loved it. All the decorations were little ladybugs! She had the best day :)

  18. My favorite birthday party so far has been my firstborn's first birthday party. We had it at a firestation and got a tour of the fire station and got to look at the trucks (all for free). I couldn't believe that my "baby" was one and now in June I will be celebrating Luke's first and Jake's second and I can't believe it!
