Our own purple girl turned four on Saturday! Since last year was such a hard day with the passing of Katie, we tried hard to make Bailie’s birthday extra special this year ! The day started with a liver wurst filled Kong after her morning walk. She and Madison always get a treat while Mom takes me out on my walk.
Mom and I left on our walk right after the photo of the birthday girl with her Kong. Unfortunately, Mom forgot to take off Bailie’s party hat. The only catastrophe of the day was the shredded birthday hat. I guess Bailie didn’t feel like wearing it when Mom was not home. At least she can still shred like a champ at four years old!
One benefit of having siblings is sharing special days which means, special foods! For breakfast, we all had our usual food but we got eggs scrambled in bacon grease as a topper. Yum!
After breakfast, Bailie got to open her gifts. Since we have so many toys, the only thing she can really use would be treats. She got some venison treats, kangaroo jerky, and some of her other favorite things. I know she will share with us, so we are all excited!
Next up, it was time to get the birthday cake going. You may remember, Madison wanted to bake the cake…neither Bailie nor Madison know how to bake but I let them do what they wanted to do. Thankfully, our friends, Harley and Jackson over at Groovy Goldendoodles posted about cake mix last month! My sisters opted to use a cake mix from Puppy Cake and ice cream too because the boys recommended it!
There was only one speed bump in the master plan – Madison hasn’t learned how to read yet. Bailie wasn’t too bothered and offered to read the directions on the packages so Madison could get the cake baked and ice cream made. Red Velvet cake with vanilla ice cream is what Bailie chose for flavors. The red velvet cake is red from the beets. Mom wasn’t sure we would eat it as we have never had beets. The cake is all natural and the ingredients are made in the USA.
All fears about the beet flavored caked disappeared when the birthday girl was caught stealing the batter right out of the cake pan! She takes full advantage of having long legs!
Once the cake was baked and frosting and the ice cream was frozen, we all assembled for the party out on the deck. It was a gorgeous day to party outside. Madison found the entire birthday thing so much fun and can’t wait for her own first birthday in August!
After howling the usual birthday song, Mom served up the cake and ice cream and we dug right in!
Can you tell by my expression and the stuff in my beard how much I enjoyed the cake and ice cream? This stuff is super yummy, and even my sisters can get it together!
The day was fun filled and action packed for Bailie. Last but not least, she ended her birthday festivities with some Alpine Wabbit Stew. Yes, we all got to share. Nothing beats wabbit for dinner, or anytime for that matter!
Happy Birthday, Bailie! Enjoy being four and look forward to more!
