this post will be image/video heavy.
The Day Started like any other - there were a few "Happy Birthdays" but nothing special, which is a huge deal because birthdays in our house are like Christmas, Easter & New Years smushed into one. She went off to work like normal && we frantically ran around doing the last minute Tid Bits. At 10:30am we surprised her at work (I'd been secret squirreling with her boss for weeks) with what seemed like an ordinary morning tea. She had no idea she was finished work for the day & about to begin a super special treasure hunt.
Inside this first box attached to the balloon was a Dr Seuss Quote (She has all his books) Under some tissue paper in the box was a "21 Today Badge" && A Coffee Cup with a clue inside - it was a "To-Do" List all the items were ticked off except for the last one "Get *insert bosses name* Coffee"
That Clue led down to the coffee shop underneath her building - the Lovely Lady that runs it was probably just as excited as we were && She handed her the next clue.
Money with Strings attached.. Now we were off too, yes, the Adult store (this one was all my mothers Idea as my sister is a little shy..) It was funny though && she had to spend all $35 before the guy who owned the store would give her the next clue!
It was a photo of us with our best friends from when we were littlies (who's parents also happen to be our godparents) & on the back it read - "Bike Rides & Barbies - Cricket in the Garden... Sleepovers && Spaghetti, know where you're headed? -- Life is BETTA with Great Friends.." Our Godparents (& their son) own Betta Motors - So off we went!
They had Set up a bunch of balloons & hidden the clue in between :) It was a bottle of Tanning oil & A Sun which read - "The Cure for anything is SALTWATER - sweat, tears or THE OCEAN... -- Meet you at our new beach" (we recently bought a house about 3 minutes from a beautiful beach) But before she could work it out we drove away - leaving her - she thought she was going to have to walk & was a little shocked.. but Luke very kindly said he'd give her a lift in his very pretty(?) car :)
So then we spent a lot of time down at the beautiful Warriewood Beach Digging...
&& Digging... until she finally found a little message in a bottle :)
What was inside the Bottle? Part Two Very Coming Soon!
