Weekend by numbers: Party animals

1: Wildlife birthday party for a Junebug about to turn two years old, who wasn't afraid to touch an alligator about his age.

This is how we roll in southern Florida. Have to start the gator education early.

1: Real owl.

1: Not-real-but-really-tasty owl.

It wasn't my idea, but I improved upon the original by making it from scratch and not using any yucky petroleum-based food dye or preservatives.

1: King snake favored by the Man-cub.

24: Cupcakes left uneaten by guests.

40: Party guests young and old young at heart.

120: Minutes I crashed dead to the world after we got home.

My son once had a snake-themed birthday party. A friend of mine made a big boa constrictor cake that was absolutely fabulous.

And you're right. I don't know what it is about kids' birthday parties, but post-party is the definition of worn slap out.

Happy Birthday to your little guy, by the way!
