Somebody had to have walked away with puppy fever or baby fever from Sydney's 5th birthday party! Wow, that party was like a zoo, and I can say that because they had a petting zoo! There were adults, goats, children, a puppy, multiple babies, a chicken and its chicks, kiddos, a miniature pony, and a rabbit! Whew, that was a whirlwind of a party. I'll post pictures of the babies, goats, and more later. For now, here are a few pictures from the party.
Meet Brody, the newest addition to Sydney's family (this would be Sam, my husband, holding Brody). He was soooo asleep, at this point, it was adorable! Brody is a golden retriever puppy, and he's just a fluff ball right now.
Here is Sydney, the birthday girl with 2 chicks. At one point, I looked down into the chicken cage, and I could only see the mama bird. I looked around and didn't see anyone holding a chick, and thought did we loose all of the baby chicks?!! The answer was no we did not, the mama bird was hovering/sitting on all of her chicks! She's one smart momma!
The chicks were a huge hit!
Here is Olivia, Sydney's sister, with a little chick. Olivia is a big animal lover!
Well...my cousin Greg was the only one that didn't really want to hold the cute little babies :)
This was the first family event since Papa's passing in February. It was great to be together, celebrating happy little Sydney's 5th birthday. My friends know that Nanny is now living in an assisted memory care, which is great for her. She is getting a lot more activity, full time care, and making new friends. It takes time for everyone in the family to adjust to Nanny's new home, and for Nanny's sake, this was the first time that we took her out of her new home. She did great, and it was nice having her around. Here's a pic of Nanny and me.
