Birthday parties can be wild.  Not just figuratively. This handsome dude invited a few wild things over to help him celebrate his birthday … and I mean literally wild, not the other 5 and 6 year olds there 🙂  His parents asked the staff from Cold Blooded Encounters in Monroe, North Carolina (just south of Charlotte) to […]
