Flip Flops and My Pearls
Rosebud has wonderful adventures with her friends and YaYa.
Rosebud is a pretty young girl with long blond curls and dark brown eyes. She has a dog named Spot, a fish name Goldie, a cat named Furball, a bird named Parrot, and a hamster named Smokey. She lives in a big blue house with a red roof. Everything in her room in pink, pink and more pink. There are sparkles everywhere. Jewels here and feathers there. Rosebud loved to play dress-up, wearing all her pink clothes and even a pink wig! She also likes to have tea parties with her dolls. But, most days you'll find Rosebud in a pair of overalls, a pink tutu skirt, and pink rubber rain boots, looking for an adventure. And, there's lots of room outside for playing and adventuring.
One day, Rosebud and Myrtle the Turtle climbed into the big purple truck with her YaYa and drove down through the woods to a secret place to pick blackberries. "What adventure do you have in mind?” said Myrtle the Turtle. "Are we searching for buried treasure?" asked Rosebud. "Are we building a secret agent hideout?" asked Myrtle. “Well, our adventure today is dangerous, is a treasure, is at a secret location, and sweet, and tasty, and takes a long time to do", said YaYa. Rosebud and Myrtle looked at each other, then they looked at YaYa. They had funny looks on their faces, with their eyebrown scrunched up together. YaYa laughed. "We are going to pick blackberries today” said YaYa ask she drove down a long dirt road. "What are those?" asked Rosebud. Once they stopped, YaYa pointed out the blackberry bushes to Rosebud and Myrtle the Turtle.
