It didn't just seem like John-Pio's birthday celebration went on and on. It actually did. It had a lot to do with his Birthday Challenge - the event was a last-minute decision and we went with his momentum, even though it meant two weekend days devoted to his birthday.
The Aldo Leopold Nature Center was a perfect setting for a nature boy, and what a gift to have a beautiful spring-like day. The naturalist, Jeanine, exuded her love for nature and protecting the environment. And she had the perfect sense of calm for a group of 6-7 year olds. This was a welcome change for a birthday party venue and I loved seeing so many little friends together outside of school. Check out the slideshow and if you can get to Aldo Leopold's center, you will undoubtedly see robins, squirrels, muskrats, cranes, and turtles - it was a perfect sneak peak into spring.
