On Monday, May 13th, we hosted our 3rd Annual UNBirthday Party. We changed things up a little this year to make this event bigger and better. We partnered with the City of Round Rock Parks and Recreations’ Adaptive and Includive Recreation (AIR). We LOVE partnering with this amazing group of people! We moved the event to the Play for All accessible park in Round Rock. This park was always a special place for us to go with Casey. It’s fully accessible and so colorful and fun for kids of all abilities and all ages.
HMH Publishing sent Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat to greet the kids. They also donated beautiful coloring books (wrapped) for the kids to have as a special UNBirthday gift. Build-A-Bear donated a bunch of teddy bears for the kids to have as gifts as well.
When we started to look into changing things up this year we sent a survey to some of the families that have attended previous years. Many of them commented on how much they love the unbirthday cake. Amy’s Ice Cream blows us away every year by making and donating gorgeous and delicious cakes. Every bite of the cake was eaten.
We were able to get Panda Express to donate a bunch of dinner boxes for families this year. It was really nice to have a dinner option so families did not have to leave early or come late to get everyone fed.
Round Rock fire and police were on site for the kids to explore the vehicles and talk with first responders. Kids LOVE seeing these cars/trucks up close. It was so nice that they came by to offer a little extra fun for the kids.
We (Casey’s Circle and Round Rock) brought in Tiny Tails and face painters to round out the party entertainment.
The SUPER talented Natalie from Natalie Ebaugh Photography volunteered her time to come and capture lots of great pics of everyone enjoying the park. We saw a lot of familiar faces, but met a lot of new families as well. We are already planning and looking forward to next year’s UNBirthday Party!
Thank you to everyone that joined us and to all of those mentioned above that helped to make this event extra fun for the amazing families we support.
