The Lake Superior Zoo celebrated two big birthdays over the weekend.

Kaya and Kermit, two Angolan colobus monkeys that were born at the zoo, turned one year old on Sunday. The zoo held a birthday celebration for them, complete with cake, ice cream and a crowd of visitors singing "Happy Birthday."

The zoo used the celebration as an opportunity to collect donations for the Colobus Conservation in Kenya, to help other monkeys like Kaya and Kermit.
