For one fleeting moment I thought "How fun would it be to bake a cake together?" But just the idea of it exhausted me ontop of the other things I was cooking today (more on that tomorrow) so we bought her a Walmart special cake haha. Walmart was difficult to navigate due to the renovations they are doing but thankfully we found all our party essentials. The cashier was so sweet and chatted up Jack querying about a party based on our purchases. He was all too eager to tell her all his party plans for Lucy and she was thrilled to hear he was planning a doggy birthday.

"Yes Cake. Yes Gifts. Yes Hats!!"
Lucy is obviously oblivious to her birthday, but enjoyed a solid power nap while I was cooking and Jack was sleeping which I think makes for a super birthday overall. As lots of you know we have only had her since she was 4, not from a puppy. Otherwise I would post a sweetie little puppy picture of her to celebrate the event. Instead, Lucy in a party hat chewing her bone will have to do :)
We wore the hats on and off all day as it suits Jacks whims. He knew we had a cake for her and kept asking to do cake and gifts right away, so the hats were a good way to "celebrate her birthday" without getting to cake and gifts midday. In the end the reasoning that stuck was that we couldn't celebrate without Daddy!
And now some pics from our awesome doggy birthday bash :)

|Sirius getting into the party spirit and wearing a hat. Nope it did not last long, he wore it like a fake beard for a minute before shaking it off.|
