My little Kaylyn turned 8 today. It started with her getting her birthday present from us in the morning. She got a laptop. Then we headed over to pick up the chicken strips from Wal-Mart, Publix for the birthday cake, and then headed over to the zoo. She picked the Treehouse to have her birthday party in. It was air conditioned :-) The kids did a craft, played musical chairs, ate birthday cake, and pet/looked at 4 exotic animals. Then we went out to the picnic-like area and had food. After that everyone could walk around the zoo for the rest of the day. We headed over to the Paws on Wet area and cooled off in the water for about an hour. Then we headed off to the petting zoo, but it started raining. It rained hard for a good hour and a half. We stayed dry part of the time in a cave and the rest of the time in the Mystery Adventure Room (they had a lot of animals and kid type activities. After that, we walked around the entire zoo and finished just as the zoo was closing. We did everything except the petting zoo. All in all, it was a pretty good day.
