Birthdays, Kids, and Snakes

Lucas Turns 5
Normally when I attend a birthday party for a five year old, i get excited about the event because of the event itself. Turning five is a major event in the life of a child--lot's of things are tied to turning five, like going to school and playing sports.

But yesterday--I attended a birthday party that was a lot of fun because the invited guests included alligators, crocodiles, snakes, tarantulas, and assorted lizards and snakes. The birthday party held at Eco Adventures. I enjoyed the party because the usual birthday noise was replaced by a solid hour, or more of education about the animals. 

The highlight was the snake handling session where even the most squeamish in the family had a personal experience with a python.

The educational portion of the program was very interactive and the kids, and many adults got to get up close and personal with the animals.

Even Nicole took a turn with the snake--and I can attest--she hates snakes.

 It was a lot of fun.

I highly recommend Eco Adventures as a place for a party. it was educational and most of all--fun.
