Happy Birthday, Zilly!
Inn Celebrates Valentine’s Day with Party for Resident Favorite
The Children’s Inn at NIH filled Valentine’s Day with fun and love.
The day started with deliveries of candy grams, a cookie decorating kit and handwritten Valentine’s Day cards to each resident.
Next up was a celebration of inn therapy dog Zilly’s birthday. Residents gathered in the lobby to wish the Australian Labradoodle a happy birthday and enjoy cupcakes with her. Zilly joined the inn staff in 2015.
In the afternoon, a special gathering to mark the day was held in the Bistro, which was also the site of the monthly VisArts program activity.
In the red-, pink- and heart-festooned café, residents enjoyed more treats from the candy bar while designing glass hearts and creating other Valentine-themed artwork.
A candlelight dinner ended a day devoted to love (and love of sweets!).
