My birthday

Wow wee did I ever have a great birthday yesterday. It started off with Mom giving me a special birthday blueberry/milkbone muffin (Mom had to find a treat for me that was really soft as I still have stitches in my mouth - even the milkbone was soft!) Needless to say even though I don't have any back teeth anymore I was still able to gobble in two whole bites :)

After enjoying my muffin Mom said the magic word "WALKIES" and we all got in MY car and headed off to the beach. We were way early though and my normal beach park wasn't open yet (can you believe on weekends they don't open until 7.00 am) so we went on the Mayport Navy Base and headed off for a walk on their private beach - it was so cool. I am now calling it the Mayport Cowspotdog Navy Base - cause I peed there so now it is mine :)

It was also extra cool yesterday as the USS New York was returning  after a 14 month deployment. And for those that don't know - the USS New York is a very special ship as it has part of the Twin Towers metal built into it. Mom says there was 600 very happy sailors and their families yesterday.

Mom was being a bit silly and wrote a birthday wish in the sand for me. We had a whole hour of walking along the beach and look what else we found - turtle nests!  They fence them off so people don't accidentally dig them up. We counted 8 nests along this stretch of beach. We also went to two other parks but we will save those pics for another day.

  1. Oh your Mom just loves you so much, Reilly, that she had to let everyone at the beach know that it was a special day for YOU!!! We saw a program about those turtle nests - fascinating to watch. We bet you and Denny really enjoyed those muffin treats - blueberries, yum!!!

  4. Oh that looks like a great walk. What fun. Glad the Mom wrote your birthday in the sand. You two sure are pretty. The Mom had dogs all her life and now doesn't have one so sometimes she is sad. You have a great day.

  6. Oh, wow! I am so glad you had such a brilliant birthday! A muffin and then a great walk on the beach?!? Sounds like the perfect day. Do you have turtle watching up by you? If they do and your mom hasn't done that yet, she should! She gets to go out on the beach at night and watch the baby turtles hatch out of the nest and make a run for the ocean. It's very cool. Glad you are feeling better after your teeth removal.

  9. Wow! Turtle nests! Ghostwriter saw some of those in Boca. They were roped off like that too with warning signs that it was against the law to disturb them. Hope you see some baby turtles!

    We are also thinking about you a lot and hope your teeth problems get better soon.

  17. Number eight and two teeth short ~ well I say who is counting as long as you can enjoy those treats.. Happy 8th Birthday Reilly. I did not know the USS New York had part of the Twin Towers metal, that is an interesting bit of history. Send some cooler weather this way O.K.
    Thanks for being a friend

  18. Can't believe in SUMMER, the beach park isn't opened earlier. BUT you had a fantastic birthday. Our Auntie was at the beach somewhere on the east coast and 'adopted' a turtle nest. She took care of it while she was there....then a few months later when home, got a report on how many turtles hatched...etc. We hope you can go back to see those nests in future.
