Our precious McKenna turned three and we are thrilled that she is growing up but so sad to see our toddler turn into a preschooler. The days are long but the seasons are short!
We had her birthday party the Saturday before her actual day. We had a theme of rock star and the plan was for her and the kids to sing and dance until they could no more or until 6pm. McKenna had none of that! She ate her icing and opened gifts and then -played with her gifts. She was so excited to HAVE a party but she didn't really want TO party. Oh well. Next year is Monkey Joes so I'm sure she will participate in that fun! (we have done 4 year old parties at MJ's for the other two)

About a week before her birthday, McKenna asked if she could go on the green bridge for her birthday. Of course you can! It's free and will make a wonderful outing for us all! Seriously, the best idea ever. So Aaron left work early to meet us on the Cady Way Trail bridge. We let the kids bring their scooters and bike and we had fun walking and riding up over the bridge. Of course we had to go to the bottom of the other side and come back. The kids had so much fun! McKenna especially was happy because we were going up, at the top, going back down! (She has always liked going over bridges in the van) It was a dream come true for McKenna and she still talks about it now when we drive under it. I love her enthusiasm for life. She really does wake up in the morning and think today is going to be a GREAT day! She finds the fun in everything.
When we got home we ate dinner. McKenna chose spaghetti. We had rice krispie treats and then a bath. After everyone was ready for bed we opened more gifts! She was so happy to finally get the Dora and horse!
Happy Birthday McKenna Faith!
