Winn, ever the patient child, waited for two whole months to celebrate her birthday at the zoo. Things got a little crazy after I had Klive. I got staph and then hospitalized, Kolby moved to Tulsa for a month, June went back to school, Klive demanded all of the parental attention, and this little girl's dream of having a hippo party sort-of fell through the cracks.
Winnie is such a kind-hearted girl. She never whined, complained or bugged me about the party favors gathering dust in my closet. She knew one day Mom would get her act together and we'd celebrate her 4th birthday in style.
So last week we slapped on our animal masks . . .
And headed out on an animal scavenger hunt to find the birthday treasure.
You couldn't fool these smarty-pant kids, they knew everything about the animals and found their way to the loot with ease.
. . . for a really great girl!
