For the second year in a row, Bunny was away at RSCM camp on her actual birthday, so we picked today to celebrate her turning 15!
The day got off to an earlier start that she probably would have preferred, because I inadvertently scheduled an orthodontist appointment for her this morning. But we got to stop at Rural King afterward, where she got to see the store mascot, Tate…he’s a big bunny!
When we got home, she opened her presents, and they were an excellent snapshot of her personality. Books (including one about pigeons, and one all things Marvel), a new Erstwilder brooch, a plush Pokemon pidove, and a Star Wars Lego set featuring her favorite character, Darth Vader (plus a Harry Potter Lego set featuring her favorite character from that franchise, Sirius Black, that she received before she left for camp):
We spent the day watching some of her favorite movies, and her selection was also her in a nutshell…Black Panther, The Empire Strikes Back, Zootopia, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Of course we also had a special birthday dinner. Since she had gum surgery in June, and didn’t get to fully enjoy the build-your-own-sandwich bar we had on the Fourth of July, we did that again. There were four kinds of meat (including bacon at the birthday girl’s request, which was a fantastic addition I hadn’t thought of before!), five kinds of cheese, and six kinds of salty snacks (and, no, I didn’t plan for the numbers to go like that!), plus Faygo Rock & Rye soda:
Of course I made a bunny cake to her specifications:
We missed having her at home on the actual day, but we were very happy to get to say “Happy 15th Birthday, Bunny!” to her today!
