Somedays I can’t believe my oldest son is already 3 years-old and my new baby is 2 months-old. It feels like it was yesterday when I became a first time mom, then all of a sudden my little baby turned 1 and 2 and then 3… Each of his birthdays are such a big milestone!
I remember planning my son’s first birthday party, knowing that it was an important moment for all of us as a family as we were celebrating his first year of life and our first year as his parents. We decided to plan his party at the local zoo and we were lucky to enjoy a gorgeous sunny day.
His birthday was filled with excitement and he got to see his favourite wild animals while walking everywhere and enjoying the fresh air. We invited close friends and family to celebrate with us and we all had a fabulous time. We also got to ride the train around the zoo and that was a hit with the little ones.
It was a great party but what matters the most is that at the end of the day we had a very happy one year old running around everywhere, such a fun day!
