Turning Five, Turtles Style

We love celebrating our kids with our family and friends.

Logan wanted a TMNT party. I did some good old fashioned internet research to try to make his party special and see if I could get a big turtle for his party. I found Animal Tracks online and knew that it would be the perfect thing for Logan's party!

When everyone first started to arrive, we snacked on food. The kids jumped on the trampoline and we all caught up with each other. Soon enough it was time for Animal Tracks to arrive!

The kids got to see a bunch of insects and reptiles. They passed around a few, touched a few and even got to watch the turtle walk around our yard! The kids were enthralled!

Chenoa did a great job giving information on all of the friends that she brought. She answered questions from the kids and with over 50 people in attendance, it was a great 45 minute show!

 After the fun of the animals, the kids got to do a pinata. Then we sang happy birthday and had cake/ice cream before opening gifts. Logan received a ton of TMNT stuff and he loved everything he got! We have such a great group of friends and our family is fantastic.

This girl, she takes my breath away with her beauty!

Thank you to all who came out to celebrate Logan and his special day with us. We had a great time!
