Yesterday was the celebration of my great niece's 5th birthday.
Mackenzie is special to me since we haven't had a girl in the family since her mom was born! She is "sugar and spice and everything nice" with a little "puppy dog tails" thrown in. (Mackenzie had cut off her hair a few weeks ago.)
Mackenzie with mom, Jessica. Jessica is special to me too because she is the daughter of my late sister, Wendy, who passed away when Jessica was only seven. I always wonder what Wendy would think of her children and grandchildren if she were living. Jessica is all about Brewers baseball, Texas Holdem, and such, but she is a good wife and mom. Come to think of it, my sister was a bit of puppy dog tails too.
The kids all had their suits on as they played with water balloons and the "Slip and Slide." I didn't get close enough to the water to get a picture of that!
Mackenzie got about 4 dolls and many outfits (so cute). Mom and Dad got her her first bike.
It had a bike for Barbie too, but Mackenzie noted, no helmet! I believe she is feeling awesome in her new helmet!
"Barbie, we're doing it!"
The sun was hot, the food and company were good. We all got a tad sunburned and a good time was had by all!
