  • I had my daughters 1st bday at the zoo too. It was a lot of fun. We had it the Saturday after her birthday but it was in May. I think that if you know what the temp is like a couple weeks before then you can kind of judge what it's gonna be like. My sister-n-law makes cakes so she made a sheet cake and a mini cake for her. I made a lot of cupcakes for others people. I had 45 people there . . . we have a huge family and they loved the zoo.

  • My son's burthday is in June and because he was the first granschild on both sides it was a big deal and everyone wanted to be part of it. So we did a under the sea themed party in my mom's backyard and family and friends were all invited. It was a huge party and so much work! Everyone had a great time and he ate the under the sea cake I made for him!
    For my daughter's birthday I tried to do the same thing except we didn't get the same turnout. For my 3rd childs I'm not sure what we're going to do but I think the zoo is a wonderful idea!

  • For a 1st, they have to have their own little cake to tear into!
