In our family, we embrace the mantra of “celebrate early and often”.  In the spirit of that, Sophie’s birthday party was held 2 weeks before her big day.  At her request (I swear it was her choice!), it was held at our gorgeous new humane society, complete with a tour of the beautiful new building, feeding carrots to adoptable bunnies, making a special treat for the bunnies, and a visit from a very friendly dog named Shadow.

The staff and volunteers at the shelter made it so special for her, even down to the dog bone shaped crayons!  If you live in the SF Bay Area, I would strongly encourage you to hold your kid’s party there!

Sophie was thrilled with all of it…
