Sam’s Third Birthday Party

Hello and  welcome to a short story about Sam and his friends.

The story begins in a not too far away place called Story Land in Roeding Park.  It was a little chilly and raining, but more of a  light drizzle with the sun trying to peek through the clouds.  Imagine a park full of children’s stories, where a magic key brings them all to life!   Here is the entry to the magical playground.

 After a climb up the pathway, we came to the castle where King Sam would reign for the day. 

Here is Sam and Mom, Kathy at the entry to the castle.

And inside the castle:

After all was set up for King Sam’s birthday, we decided to walk around the park.  With Sam’s magical key, we were able to listen to the stories, but Sam was having so much fun with his friends that he didn’t want to listen to the stories and wanted to run around and explore, just like any 3 year old little boy! 


After playing outside for a while, we all decided it was time for PIZZA and soda!  Inside the castle!

And then a rousing game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey!  Very exciting!

We then went for a train ride around the park.  Here is a picture of the train and our engineer.

After the train ride, we hiked up to the castle and had a few swings at Spiderman.  (A pinata)

At this point my pictures end as my memory on the camera was full, but the story goes on.  After the pinata, we went in for cake and opening presents.  As we were serving the cake, we were told by the caretaker that the park would be closing in 15 minutes due to the rain, so after the cake we cleaned up.  We then came back home to Kathy’s home and Sam opened his gifts there with several of his friends.  They had a blast and Sam got a lot of cool things, especially Nerf guns, an Iron Man Helmet, and lots of goodies.

Thank you for listening to a grandma go on about her grandson!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
