Today I took Z to a birthday party on the Upper East Side (pretty far from our neighborhood). It started out as a typical birthday party (kids doing crafts, etc.) Then we were ushered into another room, where two men started unloading animals from crates. ("We Bring the Zoo to You.") The animals included a giant yellow python (named Banana), a hedgehog and a bunny. Zoe even held a tarantula!
The last animal is a baby alligator, named Rocky.
