On Zoey's birthday, her Grandpa sang . . .
"This is your birthday song, it isn't very long. . .HEY!"
That is the coolest birthday song ever! Despite having the shortest birthday song, Zoey had an extended birthday. We were with family for the Fourth of July and so that in itself was a present for Zoey.
She loved having so many cousins all around her. Even today, she ask or talks about her cousins. On her birthday the cousins each made her a birthday card, which she toted around in her custom made purse.
Grandma Porter brought a cake to the cabin and we sung "Happy Birthday" to Zoey, whom all the while asked me "My birthday?" "Happy Birthday to me?"
Then the week we returned home from Utah, I organized a little party for her. I made it water themed because she absolutely loves the water and would wear her bathing suit, 24/7 if I let her.
We had sailboat corndogs, little pools with lifesavers in them, and cupcakes with a worm and hook. We also had many of Zoey's favorite foods like goldfishes, pretzels, cheesesticks and fruit kabobs.
They played with her giant water ball, the kiddie pool out with slide, they could fish in her water table, and jump on the mini trampoline out where they could jump while being sprayed. I also had two activities, one where they had to fill the bucket with water by passing water with cups, and the other one I tried doing water pinatas (I got this idea from her grandma).
She had a wonderful time and I had a great time watching how happy she was. Zoey is such a pleasant, happy, and fun girl and I am so lucky to have her in our family. She makes me smile every day and always has a hug and kiss ready for me. I love this girl!
