Bunny here, writing about the big banquet being held in honor of the big race that Pip and I had at the beginning of the month.
It really was a lot of fun, and I was reminded that having friends is much more important that winning anything. A lot of our friends seemed to enjoy that message a lot and so it was decided that we'd have a banquet to celebrate the big race. Our coaches, Puddles and Roo were also asked to sit at the table of honor with us by Frankie, too.
I have to admit, I was pretty excited about the whole big day. I mean, really, a banquet to honor little me? When my sisters asked to come along with me, I was glad to have them come along with me. Perhaps I should have known better when Lilac was waiting at the back door with a suitcase. Still, I was so excited, I didn't ponder things like that the way I should have. Since there were four of us, I told Puddles not to worry about swinging by in her souped up red Pinto. Instead, we decided to travel in style and we chartered the Spirit of Peoria to take us to the banquet.
After a relaxing ride on the river we arrived and entered through the spotlight. After a rather, um, motivational speech by Pip, we were all ready to eat. There was so much food, I couldn't believe my eyes. I decided to try a taco for the first time, and it was pretty good!
I was a bit surprised as the festivities began to find out that Lilac had brought all her green papers in hopes of getting Bono or some other rock star to get a little closer to her. I asked Morgan to make sure that she didn't bring one of them home in our suitcase, but she seemed a little distracted. Blueberry seemed to have ideas about slipping off to the dance floor. I reminded her to be careful with her splint, but I think I heard her say something about how she thought it was time for it to come off. I really hope that all my sisters manage to behave themselves at this party!
If you've written a post about the banquet and would like to add it to the list of festivities, please feel free to join in the fun!
