Happy Birthday to Tasha
Yet another birthday has been celebrated in the Graham household! Miss Tasha turned a big twelve years old, and we made her promise that she wouldn't get any older (We'll see if she keeps her promise!).
We made her a cake of kiwis, cantaloupe, and in-between "icing" of coconut flakes, dates, and coconut yogurt~ it was light and delicious!
Everyone was excited to see the fun things she received for presents (like this Sculpey to make items for her dollhouse)~
And to top it all off, we had a picnic and went berry-picking to celebrate her special day~
We explored a path in the woods. . .
. . . And found a school of baby catfish in a quickly-drying up river.
As well as some delicious Dryad's Saddle mushrooms, which were perfectly young and tender, and tasted, forgive the cliche, just like white chicken meat.
A grandfather Sycamore tree resides in these woods, and we had to use our bodies to measure how big across he was (next time we'll remember a measuring tape). There is always a special feeling walking through the woods, and we love to go there as much as possible. It was a wonderful way to celebrate another year of life of a wonderful girl.
