McKenna Turned 3!

So McKenna's birthday was on March 11th and she turned 3! It's hard to believe that she is three already but it's true. She wanted a princess party (surprise there) so we got all the princess trimmings for her party and she was so excited.

We played pin the tail on the donkey and even the adults joined in. The birthday girl even won. (She peaked)
She opened a ton of presents and loved all of them so thank you everyone. She even got a princess fishing pole specifically to go fishing with Grandpa Brownell so be prepared dad.

Then came time to blow out the candles on her beautiful princess cake that she picked out. I lit the candles turned around and the next thing I knew.................
It was on the floor face down! It just slipped off the platter right on to the tile!
So we salvaged what we could so McKenna could at least get to blow out her candles.
And this is what she ended up with. It was pretty funny. I had to laugh or I would have gotten really mad, only because that was how my whole day went which is a story for another time.
All in all McKenna had a wonderful birthday and we are so proud of her and all she has become in her three short years and can't wait to see what the next year brings. And to see what adventure will be on her next birthday. Watch out Maddie your next!
