Alex’s 6th Birthday Trip

There was a little girl named Alex, and she loved horses, just like her aunt.

And the day before her sixth birthday she had her third horseriding lesson,

 where her family came and watched,

including her younger sister (whose passion is gymnastics, if you couldn’t tell, she is a stretchy little one)

and also her new cousin, (whose passion is sleeping and eating)

and after took her out to lunch at her favorite coffee shop.

(don’t let her fool you, she got TWO muffins because it was her birthday, but like a true lady, did not want them in the picture with her:)

When lunch was over, as she requested, her aunt jay jay and her gammy took her to Goodwill.

On the way she said, “I really want to find a big pink teddy bear with a bow tie.”

And amazingly enough, as she walked through the aisle, perusing the piles and piles of stuffed animals on top of the clothing racks, she came upon this,

A big pink stuffed teddy bear with a bow tie.  And she put it in her cart to bring home with her.

But she was not done with Goodwill that day.  She had to make sure there was nothing else there for her.  And so she walked further to the back of the store and saw this,

put there seemingly just for her for her 6th birthday.

An old fashioned bouncing horse.  She immediately jumped on and knew she would have hours of countless fun and had to bring it home as well.  She even named it Jiggles because of how it jiggled as she rode.  Her aunt knew she would pay at most $20 anything so she could bring it home with her for her birthday.  But it was only 7.50, half off its original price of $15.

It made her aunt happy that the Goodwill fairies seem to show her niece the same favor they do her.

And they did not leave her aunt out that day either, as they led her to this

A knee length Calving Klein kelly green wool car coat, for 12.50.

And also to these,

Talbot’s patent leather flats, perfect size 7, (they know how to make a girl feel like Cinderella) also half of of $8.00 for $4.00.

Yes it was a happy day before her sixth birthday for Alexandra, and her aunt Jay Jay.

Thanks Goodwill!

(in case you didn’t catch on…I am the aunt:)

    Haha Love it. You are so cute when you write these. P.S. I wish I wore the same size as you- maybe I will one day, shoes however, never, since my giant feet will never shrink. 🙂
