Happy Birthday Valentina!

On April 3, 2010 the Natural History Museum was honored to have Valentina come celebrate her birthday with us!

Valentina loves dinosaurs, so we packed as much dino action into her day as we could!

Her family came with tons of dino decor, including figures both large and small marching through the grass and trees laid out on the tables.

As friends and family arrived, they signed the jumbo birthday card designed especially for Valentina by the museum’s design department before getting to work on their dino puzzle craft.

Once everyone arrived, they headed up to the 2nd floor North American Mammal Hall for the Dinosaur Encounters! show. After the show, the kids took some time to explore the mammal hall, which is currently home to a few of our dino fossils as well. Before heading back down to the party room, everyone made their way through the Dino Lab to watch paleontologists work on actual dinosaur bones!

Back in the room, a beautiful spread was laid out for lunch and it included a very elaborate volcano/dinosaur cake! A special thanks to Portos Bakery doing such an amazing job on both the lunch and cake!

As the party was winding down, Valentina’s mom handed out jellybean-filled dinosaur eggs with numbers inside. She then raffled off the dinosaur toys that they used to decorate the room. So not only did everyone go home with an Easter goodie bag but a dinosaur as well!

A great big thank you to Valentina’s family and friends who came out to help celebrate. It great to see so many small faces get so excited about the museum!

And a very special thank you to the birthday girl herself for allowing us to share your day with us and we know that we’ll see you here at the museum!
