CrAzY 8!!

Friday, April 30th was Mackenzie's 8th birthday!! I know, I can't believe she's already 8 years old!! She's not a baby anymore. We are half way to 16!! OMG!!
On Saturday, we had her birthday party at the park across the street from our apartment. We were hoping for no rain and we were blessed with a nice day! It was a little cloudy and overcast but that worked out well because it was already hot enough.
Danny had a great idea to surprise her with a moonwalk (bounce-house) so we got one for the day. We invited our family and she invited some friends from school/daycare. Well, I had sent a few invitations with her to school and told her to pass them out to a couple of her friends. Well she ends up asking her teacher to make copies and she gives one to every girl in her class!!
She was thrilled to see the bounce-house set up at the park. At first, she didn't think it was for her. Once she figured it out, she ran up to it and jumped in. Aydan was pretty excited too!
After everyone showed up, the kids played and then we did cake, ice cream, and gifts. She had a really good time. It had been a long time since Kenzie had a BIG birthday party with people other than us so we were glad that she had a good time with her friends and family! :)
This is the bounce-house we got for the day. We thought the space rocket was appropriate since we live so close to NASA.
Here's the birthday girl riding the new bike we got her for her birthday! She loves being able to ride a bike again.
