Abigail turned 9 this weekend! To celebrate, we planned a couple adventures for her – one with our family and one with new friends.
Our family went to visit a lion park nearby. We got to drive through the park to see lion, cheetah, and wild dogs, and the girls got to pet lion cubs too! This one was a 5 month old white lion.
We also got to feed a giraffe, which was a lot more fun and a lot less messy than we thought it would be!
For fun time with her new friends, we made a treasure hunt, complete with map, hidden messages, and a treasure at the end of the hunt!
It took a bit of work and a lot of cooperation, but they worked hard for over an hour to figure out the clues, follow the map, and find all the message bottles.
At the end: buried treasure! All things sparkly and fun for little girls, including gold wrapped chocolate Kugerrands!
We love this little one, who is growing up so quickly these days! She is a joy to us, and we thank the Lord for her life every day of the year!
