Mishy’s Third Birthday Party With Reptile Family

March 6, 2011

Who's the birthday girl? Matt asks Mishy to be his helper.

Our daughter turned three and she wanted a party. Fifty of our friends and my mom came to celebrate with us. Matt, from The Reptile Family brought many amphibians, reptiles, and arachnids to entertain and educate all our guests. He was a sensation.

Matt shows J a scorpion.

L looks to see what's in the basket.

Cockroaches!

Mishy has 5 frogs on her. We had to keep them wet so her dress got wet. She didn't mind.

Mishy touches a frog.

Y holds two lizards.

Matt shows L a geeko.

Gentle touching.

Fascinated by another lizard

Mishy picked 3 friends to hold an iguana together

A turtle

Watching the turtle move

This was Babba's favorite part of The Reptile Family

Matt had to remove the snake from our necks to let it pee and poo. The snake's pee is solid white and gooey yellow. They poo every 1-2 weeks.

Babba carried the snake around his neck for as long as he could. Long time friends, Joan and Beth look on.

S and Beth get a closer view of a snake while Mishy and others watch a snake on the grass.

Blowing out the candles.

Success!

Mishy just after she blew out the candles.

The children and adults painted t-shirts and puppets to take with them.

Mishy's new friend, John Cariani - Babba's long time friend. He's a Tony nominated actor and playwright of the most produced play in America. His play, Almost Maine, is more produced than Shakespeare's Mid Summer Nights Dream.

After the party, Mishy and friends played with chalk while others played upstairs and in the backyard.

Hire them! They make things very easy, are reliable, dedicated, and make a very unique experience which children and adults will remember. One child brought home an imaginary turtle and it still lives in their place. They also offer special classes for all ages.

Catering was by Maggie’s Tapas. Delicious food and healthy too. We ordered two party platters from them. They deliver too.

Cupcakes were from Vanilla Bake Shop and Yummy Cupcakes. Both are in Santa Monica and other locations in Los Angeles. Vanilla Bake Shop has baby cupcakes which went very fast. So fast, I had to ask a guest to take a cupcake from his hand so Mishy could have one. Yummy Cupcakes has vegan cupcakes.

The cake was from Angel Maid Bakery in Culver City. We ordered the strawberry shortcake. On Mishy’s first birthday party, we ordered the guava passionfruit cake, which I thought was very yummy. Angel Maid is a family owned business which makes a special effort for customers and they make beautiful custom orders which are reasonable.

  1. That was really entertaining for the kids. They are still young and are mostly curious. They don’t know yet ow to be afraid of spiders and the like.
