We have a rabbit named Trouble, who we adopted in June 2011. He turned two on Monday.
Last year, Trevor and I had great fun planning Trouble's first birthday party. We made cards, wrapped gifts, and baked Bunny Biscuits (for him) and carrot cupcakes (for us). It was a really fun party. This year, we planned an equally fun party. We made cards and wrapped gifts.
We made Bunny Trail Mix - dried strawberries, dried bananas, dried apricot, raisins, Shredded Wheat, rolled oats, and Cheerios.
When it was time for the party, we took the Guest of Honor to the backyard. He noticed the Bunny Trail Mix right away. (Note that we only gave him what you see on the plate. Even that was more of a treat than he should have in a day. Good thing birthdays are just once a year!)
Then he retreated under Trevor's chair.
Next, Trevor showed Trouble his cards. Here's the one he made.
And here's what I made:
Trevor opened it for him. It was a new paper towel tube (Trouble loves to play with tubes) with a portrait Trevor drew rolled up inside!
It's a harness so that we can eventually teach Trouble to do rabbit dressage. (Not for competition- just for fun in the backyard. There are some ADORABLE videos on YouTube, by the way...)
Trouble's harness fit well, but he HATED it. This was the only picture where he wasn't actively trying to remove it. Not surprising, considering last year's Wonder Bunny Halloween costume.
Trevor spent the rest of the party reading books to Trouble. They both really enjoy reading together.
Happy 2nd birthday, Trouble!
