Pictures of the Birthday Girl

June 22, 2009

On Saturday, we celebrated Brianna's sixteenth birthday. We held the party at her dad's house, because it's got a much bigger backyard and a functional pool. (Our pool, sadly, is still out of commission.) I just love all of these kids she surrounds herself with--she has such a wonderful group of friends! The kids swam, ate hamburgers grilled by Bill, and then wrapped up the evening with a viewing of Bree's annual slideshow. (Every year, she puts together a slide show of pictures of all of her friends at all of their outings and get-togethers throughout the year. She does such a great job, and everyone, including me, looks forward to this as the highlight of her party.)Bree, Me, and her lovely step-mom, Laurie.

Bree and one of her best friends, Shelby.
