The Rodeo Will Have To Wait ...

... because it's a VERY special day here at Ao4 Headquarters!!!

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 ...

... 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!

IMG_0236MagsBox
"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!!!!!

Cammie!
