Today the kids and I went to Noon Year's Eve at the zoo. We met up with Hoa and her boys, Chase and Ben.
When we arrived to the party room, we were given Hawaiian leis, a passport and a popsicle. The leis were for fun and the passports were for stickers after finishing activities. They were all "green" related - very educational. I found out that it takes 55 gallons of water to do one load of laundry! WOW! And the popsicles were....just because.
The activity was put on by Radio Disney; we heard lots of Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers.
There were games,
I wish I would have taken pictures of the "characters" they had visiting. (They were from Regions Hospital.) Imagine people in full costume dressed as the following - a urine cup, an H1N1 vaccine, a tooth, and a guy named Reegie with a bump on his head! Gianna waved to all of the characters as long as they were across the room from her. She's not a fan of people in costume....remember the Easter bunny?
Noon was the main event.....The Beach Ball drop! It was a little anti-climactic when the string to be pulled broke and the balls didn't drop. It took an extra minute or so, but they finally managed and all the beach balls fell.
Patiently waiting for the big beach ball drop!
The main event!And that was it! Actually after we managed to leave, we headed to Mc Donald's for a quick lunch and then it was home for Gianna to nap. It was nice to spend time with friends we don't get to see enough.
2009 has been a tough year for our family. I'm wishing health, happiness and love to all in 2010! Nothing but the best for us all!!!!
