For some reason, I woke up super early. 5 am. Zeb was up then too, however, he was up because he hadn't yet gone to bed. He's crazy like that.
Anyway, I made some coffee. Zeb went to the front door to let Peanut out (or so I thought) and then shut the door, with Peanut still on the inside, which raised some suspicion in my mind. Mostly, I thought there was an opossum in the front yard and he didn't want Peanut to encounter it.
Opossums are gross.
So I opened the front door to what I thought I saw were 15 opossums in the front yard. ew.
Then my eyes started to adjust and I began to realize the front yard was decorated with little bears and little pigs. I was a little weirded out at first, trying to connect the pieces of this very odd puzzle.
Luckily, there was a sign in the yard, and the side facing me said, "From Kate and Brian".
The sign facing the street said, "Someone squealed, it's a little bear's birthday!".
EEEEP! A birthday present for me!
We spent a lot of time in the front yard that morning and I tried to spend as much time as I could enjoying my yard friends the rest of the day. They were so cute when the sun came up, and I actually felt quite special to receive such an amazing surprise on my birthday.
Was this the best birthday surprise I've ever received?
