My daughter is a very...focused person. When she finds something that interests her, she is single-minded to the point of obsessive. A few months ago, she caught a few episodes of Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet, and that was it. I think I convinced her that 'Bigfoot Hunter' is not a very lucrative career choice, but she still spends over half the 4 hour drive to my mom's house gazing out at the Cascade's hoping to see a Sasquatch.
Now...I'm not here to debate the potential reality of Bigfoot. As someone who spends days at a time in the woods unable to find a legal deer or elk, I'm open minded about the difficulty of finding something that doesn't want to be found in the woods.
But...how does one do a 'bigfoot' Birthday Party? There aren't a lot of Bigfoot balloons or paper plates.
Luckily, my daughter is pretty low maintenance and easy to please. A bunch of furry chocolate cup cakes(with an oreo hidden in it) shaped like a bigfoot foot mold, and some presents.
It was a good day...and even better, due to scheduling, her real birthday is not until next week, so I didn't need the spend the day feeling all old and decrepit that my baby is turning 11.
