Mena's Friend Birthday Party

Back Row:  Kali (Maggie's friend), Brooke, Luci, Rory, Aunalie, and Molly.
Front Row:  Maggie, Presley, Mena, Haley, and Tessa.
Mena had a great time with all her friends.
I thought giving a party in my own house was so much easier than at the apartment clubhouse.  I didn't plan any games; I just let them play together outside or downstairs!

Mena's and Ty's Birthday Party

I hosted Mena's and Ty's Birthday party this year and there was more than enough room in my house for all of us!!

Mena is 8 years old!

Gene and I took Mena to 6 weeks of Physical Therapy so she could learn some of the skills she hasn't yet mastered that kids her age can do.  I bought us some exercise balls so we can do at home what Miss Jan taught her at PT.  Mena thought they were part of her gift :-)

I actually bought her a lawn chair and VBS music dvd.

Henry Doorly Zoo

The girls don't remember going to the Henry Doorly Zoo because they were so young so this was an exciting trip for them.  I love it that they are old enough we can go places by ourselves and enjoy the day without stress of naps, potty training, or wandering off.
