One—one baby from her class RSVP’d. I have not even instructed her that. Like why? Why? Her entire class knew what occurred.”

Dozens of kids rode a celebration pony and petted a slew of reptiles. A procession of 30 Jeeps cruised down the road handing out items. Charlotte even bought her personal personalised mini Jeep! Together with many, many different items.

As for Charlotte, her smile by no means stopped.
