Leave it to Zoe to get right to the point when describing this (long) weekend’s adventure:
“We’re going to a birthday party, but it’s really far away.”
It’s true! Sister Claire’s Phip (Pro Tip: That’s Philip to some) is turning one, and Zoe and Leo and I are heading to the party. (It’s Mike’s turn to stay home and work / relax / eat mall pretzels.) Along the way, we’ll spend the afternoon in La Crosse and the night in a “deluxe” campground cabin. We’ll eat a lot of snacks and those of us not driving will watch a lot of movies.
There will be whining. There will be weeping. But in the end, there will be joy. And cupcakes. (Pro Tip: Joy and cupcakes are practically the same thing.)
Happy birthday, sweet Phip! We are on our way.
What’s your favorite way to celebrate your birthday?
