Sweet Scoops for Erin

Here’s a birthday card for a little girl that doesn’t necessarily like the usual “girly” things. I figured, what kid doesn’t like ice cream? Happy Birthday Erin!!

Is it just me, or is this photo too weird to caption? Jax is in a laundry hamper wrapped with a red pom pom blanket. Any suggestions? Please help me caption this and put your suggestions in the comments!!
