We all know Blue Ivy, product of the heavenly union between Beyonce and Jay Z, is way cooler than most of us in our twenties. But did you know she had the biggest, baddest, blowout birthday party on the block? And by “block” I mean “enormous portion of the Earth that her parents own”? Unfortunately, I wasn’t invited to go to Blue Ivy’s birthday party.
On the bright side, Beyonce posted amazing pictures of the whole thing on her Tumblr! The world’s prom queen and king hosted the shindig at Miami’s Jungle Island, an “interactive wildlife park and botanical garden,” which they rented out the entirety of. Given how much I lost my mind a Syracuse’s Zoo Boo as a kid and Montreal’s bio-dome, I’m pretty sure that this is the best birthday party ever. Ever ever. So, what did it look like?
That’s right, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland were there! I kind of wish there was a random Vine of them reuniting for a ridiculously amazing rendition of “Happy Birthday” (can you imagine how empowered your birthday wish would be?).
Okay, I realize that this birthday party is way out of the budget for most of humanity–myself included–but I am still really stoked on it, as I kind of am when any kid is made happy with love and toys and people smiling at her. And it’s just so endearing how proud and excited they look to be parents.
As a side note, I totally get that these pictures won’t make every woman’s biological clock start ticking nor lead to every guy longingly hoping for a LTR to turn into a parenting situation. But isn’t still great to see a 2-year-old have an awesome birthday party? It is. Unless you have no heart, in which case, I believe I have a lion and a scarecrow to introduce to you.
