Carsyn's 2nd birthday was originally setup for Kiddie Acres this past weekend, and then Hurricane Patricia happened and the forecast showed rain all weekend long. By Thursday evening I made a last min call and changed the venue to Safari Champs, an indoor playscape for kids. Thank goodness I did because it rained non-stop that Saturday and her party would have been ruined. Of course this meant I only had Friday to completely change her theme! Luckily both locations were all inclusive and I really only had to switch up her evite and cupcakes. Safari Champs was a complete success! Everyone was still able to make it despite the rain soaked road conditions and the kids had a blast.
**Due to the rain filled forecast we are switching venues to Safari Champs (indoor jungle gym/playscape, BRING SOCKS).**
Friends of the Jungle have gathered to say
Please help us celebrate
CARSYN'S 2ND BIRTHDAY!
We have the LION ROOM from 9-11am. Pizza, hotdogs and fruit trays will be served around 10am with cake to follow. You can stay as long as you want as there's really no end time, however we only have the LION ROOM from 9am-11am.
Favors: Each kid will receive a balloon and a free one day pass. Please make sure you get this from me before you leave! :)
Since the party started so early it made for a quick morning. We barely had enough time for breakfast before arriving at Safari Champs around 8:45am to setup. The nice thing about Safari Champs is they took care of pretty much everything; provide table clothes/plates/utensils and even tied a balloon to each chair for the kids to take home. They handled the clean up too, which was awesome. All we did was bring in some appetizers and a cooler of extra drinks. The kids played to their hearts content. Pizza, hot dogs and soda were served as an early lunch and was part of the birthday package. Each kid also received a free one day pass to use at their convenience.

I found the idea for the monkey cupcakes on the Internet. Super easy!! I bought the cake mix/frosting, eyeballs and vanilla wafers from HEB. It actually went together fairly quickly and the kids were even able to help add the ears and eyeballs, they had a blast helping mommy decorate. The safari monkey theme was perfect, this girl loves her monkeys!

We waited until we were back home to open gifts. Carsyn loved everything she received and began playing with it immediately. Ry was also a fan of all her new toys. :) A huge thank you to everyone that was able to join us and celebrate Carsyn's 2nd birthday!
