Ginger Snap Crafts: Feed Your Zoo Party {We Bought A Zoo DVD} #iLovemyK9

Feed Your Zoo Party {We Bought A Zoo DVD} #iLovemyK9

Around our house we don’t need
much reason to throw a little par-tay!
We do it all the time! 
Lots of times we plan a
party around a theme like the
the last day of school, a different country,
a new movie or maybe a special holiday.

This week we heard that
We Bought a Zoo
was being released on DVD.
{Annnnd that gave us an idea for a party!}
feed your zoo at home

Sometimes it seems like we are living in a zoo
around here with 5 kiddos & all their furry friends!
Sooooooo it sounded like a good time to
throw a Feed Your Zoo {at home} Party!
So we headed to Walmart to pick up our supplies!

You can check out my entire shopping trip over on google+.

When you purchase any 2 participating
Del Monte products you can use a
coupon for $4.00 off your We Bought a Zoo DVD.
Just look for the coupons that are attached
to the participating products at Walmart!

Since we were buying treats for the animals anyways
we thought it would be fun to include them in our party!

baxter  milk bone dog treats

Our dog, Baxter got his favorite treat, Milk Bones.
As soon as we give him a Milk Bone he always buries it.
{Then he’ll come right back a few minutes later & eat it!  Silly dog! Smile}

feed your zoo cat  meox mix

Our cat, Thunder got his favorite treat, Meow Mix.
{He thinks that is a picture of HIM on the packaging!}

bunnies  rabbit treats

We even picked up some yogurt bites for our bunnies!

Of course, we couldn’t leave us out!
I picked up some Del Monte fruit cups,
frozen vanilla yogurt & granola
& made a yummy treat for us!

The kiddos were so excited for our party!
We were going to use the projector & watch the movie outside on the patio,
but some thunderstorms rolled in!  So we ended up partying inside the house.
They didn’t seem to mind the change of plans too much as you can tell. Winking smile

Then we turned off the lights & watched
We Bought a Zoo.

We really enjoyed the movie. 
I don’t want to give too much away. Winking smile
Basically it’s about a family going
through some tough times,
& they decide they need
a change & a fresh start,
so they end up buying a zoo! 
I like that is is based on a true story, too!
{Annnd who doesn’t love Matt Damon??}

Just a warning there was some bad language.
(Grrrr!  Why do they have to put that in there??) 
I did notice on the back of the DVD that they
have a Family Friendly Audio option,
so when we watch it again I’ll be using that.

{You can watch the trailer here.}

  1. Hello Ginger,
    What a fun family party! The frozen vanilla yogurt with fruit and granola sound super yummy.
    Smiles, Paula

  2. We are renting that this weekend! Your party sounds like fun though! Cute kiddos & animals. :)

  3. We watched the movie last night and loved it! Love your bunnies, are they all girls? My two boy bunnies are fighting, well one is fighting the other :-(

  4. Looks like a fun evening! I think maybe you have your own little zoo!

  5. I had to smile at your post. We too have our own zoo. We currently have 3 cats, 3 lizards types (a bearded dragon and 2 salamanders) a turtle, 2 fish and a hamster. If my youngest daughter had her way we would also have a hedgehog. I will need to check out that movie.

  6. You post is amazing! And your photos are absolutely stunning.

    I'm not sure I could handle more than our jerk cat and the two kids. ;)

  7. HA! Your kids look fun!

  8. Oh my goodness- my 4-almost-5 year old so often does the same thing when it comes to pictures! Goes nuts all of the sudden! :) We just rented and watched this movie too- it was substantially better than I expected actually! Looks like fun times- I need to make our everyday goings on more like a party more often!

  9. I love that you mention the family friendly option. I didn't even know they offered that. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I love your bunnies! We used to have bunnies. I'm happy you included them too! :)

  11. You really have your own zoo at home :)
    What a nice and fun family plan.
