Mckena is .... 18!

Birthday? Who has time for a birthday? Mckena left for dance/school at 6:15 a.m. Went to school, ortho at 11:00, then after school had technique until 4, was suppose to go to work from 6-8 but got out of it so we could at least go to dinner. Rich was in St. George for work, so it was just the 3 of us. As we got home, a few friends had stopped by to celebrate the day.. so we managed to squeeze in a small birthday celebration. :) I actually felt like a was in a live taping of The Bachelorette! Notice the ratio of boys to girls that stopped by. But actually I can't blame them, as her mom, I am a little partial, but here is 18 reasons we love Mckena
1. She is so fun to be around 2. She is loves life and finds joy in all she does. 3. She is herself.. note her cheesy grin and fancy birthday attire.... hehe
4. She is a true friend. 5. She is honest. 6. She is thoughtful of others feelings.
