Ava’s Birthday – Part 1

Hi! I have been working on a photostory that will be in 2 parts. It is about Ava’s birthday. Enjoy!

Ava’s Birthday – Part 1

Ava'sBday 002

It was 7:45 in the morning. My alarm clock started to ring. I groaned and turned over.

I was about to turn off my alarm and get some more sleep, when I remembered. I sat straight up in bed.

It was my birthday! I was 13 today!

I jumped out of bed and quickly put on my “birthday outfit” that I had laid out the night before.

I then went to see what the delicious smell coming from the kitchen was.

In the kitchen, Mary Lynn had just finished making my favorite breakfast: ham, eggs, and gravy.

She saw me and smiled. “Happy birthday, Ava!” “Thanks!” I replied. “Where’s Ivy?” In response, Ivy came cartwheeling in humming “Happy Birthday”.

She jumped up and gave me a hug. “Happy birthday!” I gave a muffled reply: “Um, I kind of can’t breathe, but thanks.”

She let go of me, skipped over to the table, and sat down. “Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s eat!”

I took my seat at the table and we wolfed down the delicious breakfast.

After breakfast, I skipped out the door and through my backyard. Today had been wonderful so far. I certainly hoped it stayed that way!

When the neighbor’s horse, Ruby, saw me, she stuck her head over the gate and nickered. I called, “Hello, girl! It’s my birthday!” I was pet sitting Ruby for our neighbors until they came back from a trip.

I walked up and stroked her soft nose. Then I fed her a sugar cube. I walked through the gate.

After I groomed her, I looked up and saw my cousin and BFF, Catherine, coming up the path to the house! Her adorable little sister, Merida, skipped along behind her.

I said a quick goodbye to Ruby and dashed to meet them.

“I heard it was somebody’s birthday!” Catherine said, handing me a shiny gift bag. Next to her, Merida attempted to stand on her head while singing “Happy Birthday”. She tumbled onto the concrete, and jumped right back up.

I giggled at Merida and joined hands with Catherine.

We walked up to the steps, where I sat down.

I plunged my hand into the gift bag and pulled out…

A necklace! It’s golden star shone in the sunlight. “Wow.”, I breathed. I slipped it over my head.

Ava'sBday 030

I put my arm around Catherine. “Do you like it?” she asked. “It’s the best gift ever.” I assured her.

Ava'sBday 031

“Good.” She smiled.

  1. I am so glad you like it! The breakfast was a cotton ball for gravy, a square of yellow craft foam for the cheese, and a piece of pink card stock for ham. 🙂


  2. I kind of want to move my, make it a bit more challenging. Like rename and old post “Treasure Hunt” and put the clue in that, but I think that would be too hard.
