S: Where Oh Where Is Baby Blake?
BC: Blake "If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together..there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you". --- Winnie The Pooh As soon as I set eyes on you, I knew I would always do everything in my power to protect you from all the crazy disasters life throws at us. I love you more than I will ever be able to express on a page of paper such as this. Take every good opportunity that comes your way and remember that, above all, everything happens for a reason even if you don't understand it at the time. --- Auntie CAY Lefaivre
FC: Where Oh Where is Baby Blake?
1: For: Blake Lefaivre & his awesome parents Ann-Marie & Neil!
2: Joey, the baby kangaroo, was looking for his friend Blake. He had no idea where Blake might be hiding. After looking all over the United States, he decided to try looking in Australia. After a quick goodbye to his parents, Joey was off on a long adventure for his very best friend. | N
4: One of my cousins | Uncle Kanga and his new wife Roo | I had to run from this Crikey
5: Joey was going to make his way down the East Coast. His first stop was Cairns; home to the Great Barrier Reef. Joey went scuba diving to ask his friend Nemo the Clownfish if he had seen Blake. He also asked some of his relatives, including another Baby Joey. No luck though. It was time to move on to the next stop.... | Ahoy mate!
6: Exploring the Opera House | SYDNEY
7: We walked the Sydney Harbor Bridge but Blake wasn't there. Don't worry Mom & Dad, I'll Find Baby! Love, Joey | Joey decided it was time to fly down the coast. His next stop was Sydney. Sydney is a huge city and there were a lot of places where Blake might be. Joey started in the center of the city, visiting Sydney's most famous landmarks. He looked inside the Sydney Opera house but Joey was not there. He took the elevator to the top of the highest skyscraper, but Blake wasn't there. He walked across the Sydney Harbor Bridge, but Blake wasn't there. He decided it was time to ask the local Australians...
8: I hopped right into this flower! | The surfers said I had just missed Blake at Bondi Beach!
9: I didn't see Blake hanging around the cliffs but I saw a beautiful sunset! | Royal Botanic Gardens! | I couldn't find Blake at the beaches so I headed to the racecourse next. Wish me luck!
10: At the racecourse, Joey met a lot of horseback riders that told him Blake had been betting lots of money on the horses in the past couple of days. He asked a
11: lot of different horses too. Some were nice and some just stuck their butts out in Joey's face and walked away.
12: My Surf Instructor! | Joey finally chose to head farther South past the funny city of Wollongong to where he would meet some more surfers. They invited him to their secret spot, but even Blake wasn't hiding there!
13: The surfers had not seen Blake but promised to keep an eye out as Joey had to continue South...
15: Joey's last stop in Australia was Melbourne. He thought Blake would definitely be here because Melbourne has very pretty buildings. The buildings are so pretty that they look similar to the one's Blake's Daddy makes for his job. Joey thought Blake might want to get idea's to design buildings just like his Daddy. Joey searched all over the city and down by the Great Ocean Road so that he could ask his friend Mr. Koala if he had seen Joey lately. Still, Blake was no where to be found.
17: Joey thought to himself, "Where on Earth could Blake be?" He decided to start heading home, until he wondered if Blake could be in New Zealand! Blake was always doing crazy things so Joey headed for Queenstown where he thought he might find Blake bungee jumping.
18: Blake wasn't bungee jumping. Joey was running out of ideas but he still decided to check out all the scenic places. Joey climbed mountains, slid down waterfalls, and frolicked through many fields... but Blake wasn't there.
20: KIWI LAND | Joey met up with some of his dude friends to see if Blake had slipped his secret hiding spot to them. Being the two most popular animals in New Zealand, Mr. Kiwi Bird and Mr. Sheep sent Joey to look at some of the glaciers. Glaciers are huge masses of ice that Blake might have been sliding around on.
21: Can you spot Joey in the group picture?
23: The Kiwi's told Joey that sometimes people who come from Australia are tired of the warm weather. They come to New Zealand looking to be chilllllleeeedddd out. After climbing down the glacier, Joey took a few pictures and headed straight for the Ice Bar. He had a delicious juice drink but there was no sign of Blake. It was time to fly back to Berkley, Massachusetts.
24: When Joey finally got back to Berkley Massachusetts USA, he called Blake's Mom. She said Blake had been hiding in her tummy the WHOLE time. Silly Joey! A couple days later, Blake's Dad called to let Joey know that Blake was finally ready to play. Joey was nervous because Blake was a lot bigger than he remembered; 20 1/2 inches and 7 lbs. 11 ounces! Joey was just happy to have his best friend back. What an adventure and what a relief!
