Beyonce and Jay Z decided to rent a zoo for their daughter's second birthday. On Jan. 10, Us Weekly reported that Beyonce and Jay Z went all out for their little girl's special day -- but were more than likely ensuring that they would have a fun-filled day without anyone bothering them. The power couple decided to rent out Jungle Island, a wildlife park and botanical garden in Miami, Fla. And that wasn't all...

"After the adventure, the trio headed to Joey's Italian Cafe for a bite to eat. The family sat at a large round table and ordered pizza. At one point, Jay Z even gave Blue a cell phone when she began to fuss, asking her to 'say thank you' first. And she did!" Us Weekly reports.

Beyonce and Jay Z don't rent a zoo on a regular basis but this was clearly a special occasion and they wanted to have the place to themselves -- so they forked out the money to do so. No word on what mom and dad gave Blue Ivy for her birthday but chances are the gifts weren't cheap. Regardless, Bey and Jay only have one little girl so it makes perfect sense that she's spoiled (that, and they are filthy rich) -- but it sounds like the couple is raising their little girl well, which is refreshing. Check out pictures of Blue Ivy at the zoo here.
