Happy Back-on-Dry-Land Birthday Avery.
Avery and Zoey celebrating Zo's first birthday - Jan'10
Zoey's third or fourth biggest fan, her cousin Avery, is suddenly twelve years old. Well, yesterday she turned twelve years old. She was enjoying her birthday somewhere not very far from the Gulf of Mexico after woozling and stumbled through twelve foot Gulf waves on a cruise last week. Curious cosmic connection that the waves were the approximate same height as her age, but I digress...
Happy Birthday beautiful young lady. You are twelve now and officially of so-called recommended babysitting age. You're hired. No interview. No resume. No references. We love you, that's good enough. Zoey kinda thinks you're alright too.
Next year you'll be a teenager and won't have time for any of us, so I guess we'd better soak you up now before that tragedy happens (which I really don't believe for a second ever will).
Happy yesterday, and post-birthday days, and every other day for the rest of your life.
