Unfourgettable

Liyam turned four last month! As usual, we headed to Lake Temescal for the festivities, but this year was extra special since Oren created a treasure hunt for the kids. First, they had to use a map to find the hidden treasure chest. Then, discovering it was covered in tiny locks, they set off in teams to find the hidden keys. Only after unlocking all the locks could they open up the chest and reveal the prizes. Chocolate gold doubloons! Ring pops! Finger puppets! It was great fun, and we’ll probably have to do a treasure hunt every time we go to the park now.

Can’t believe our little babbaloo is already four. Some good moments:
