Hello, everyone! It's me, Cammie, and I have a special announcement - IT'S MAGGIE'S BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!!!! Yes, it's true - Polargold's Margaret Thatcher, AKA my little Peep - is 2 years old today!!!
|"Please join me in wishing Mags a happy birthday!!!"|
"Aw, shucks, everybody..."
We've already started the festivities! We had an early breakfast, then after Mom had hers, we left on a long walk. Mom and I let Maggie choose the route!
|"Let's do a left on the Hudson Trail!"|
"Oh, I love this part of the trail!"
We had a great time on the trail, then zig-zagging all over the neighborhoods!
After a nice, long drink and quick cool down ...
|Maggie and me, waiting for Mom to get some water, too|
... we headed out to the deck!
|"There's a little breeze going!"|
"It's not too bad here in the shade!"
Mags thought we were just going to chill on the deck, but Mom and I had planned something special - pool time!
|"YAY!!! Pool party!!! I can dig it!!!"|
It was great! I jumped in, too!
|"Ha roo, Cam!"|
"Ha roo, birthday pup!"
It was so much fun!
After we got dried off, we came inside and showed Maggie one of her surprises.
|"It's a giant box!!! Oh, you GUYS!"|
Mom said it was certainly long enough for both of us girls to get in, too.
|"Umm... seriously? OK, but just because it's her birthday."|
"This. Is. So. Awesome!"
I was willing -- but this was a trick box! It was too tall and narrow for us to get in. Ha! Great joke, Mom!
|"Ha roo roo roo! Good one, Mom!"|
Oh, don't feel bad for Maggie! That was just a gag gift. There was a real one waiting for her in the foyer! Check it out!!!
|"A box WITH crinkly paper?!?! I'm getting choked up..."|
Maggie said it was exactly what she wanted! We even arranged so there is a bit of a sun-puddle there for her!
There is more celebrating to come - some special gifts AND I understand there is some watermelon waiting for us in the fridge! We're doing Maggie's big day up right!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAGGIE!!!!!! We love you!!!!!
