What a day!

Silly Milly and I went to the park for a game of hide and seek then we went to our garden to pick cupcakes.  She picked vanilla swirl with peanut butter frosting and I picked a Red Velvet one with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles.  We later ran into Harry Hippo and  Piggy Gus at the lake.  Since I had my float with me I went for a swim with them while Silly Milly picked flowers.  On our way home we stopped at the pet store to pick up some bones for Mr. Bonz.  We arrived home just as our little pup was finishing off his last bone so he was extra joyful to see us.  Tomorrow we are going to the public library.  We love to read.  Don’t you?  See you!

I have really enjoyed writing about Silly Milly and her giraffe.  They have had eight adventures so far.  If I had to pick one as my favorite I think I’d have to say it is the one about them planting a cupcake garden.  I got the idea from my nine year old granddaughter.  She was visiting over the Christmas holiday and sitting at our kitchen counter with paper and colored pencils.  When I asked her what she was doing she told me she was drawing.  I asked her what she was drawing and she said “a cupcake garden.”  My first thought was “Okaaay.”  But then my son said, “That’d make a good book.”  The idea begin forming at once in my head and I had to write it.  Who would think of growing a cupcake garden?  Wouldn’t it be cool to walk out to the garden for a cupcake?  I could plant an assortment of flavors with different flavored frostings.  What do you think?
