"Places to go, people to see."

Mark and I just returned from a jaunt up the road a piece to see family and celebrate the grandchild's 3rd birthday.
We had a great  time at the party watching all the kids and grown-ups enjoying themselves.
There were bubbles.
What is a party without bubbles?

There was dancing and music by; Atumpan-The Talking Drums

There was a special dance around the birthday girl.
She was a bit confused at first since no one was in the middle with her.
But it all worked out .

And, there was cake.
When asked if she wanted to open presents she said, "No, thanks."
She was having too much fun.

Happy Birthday Mara!

Life should come with bubbles.
There is more to life than just pots.
Les, I know I got some of your kisses.

I would love to see a photo of you as a little girl, every time I see a picture of this child she reminds me so much of her grandmother! What fun, happy birthday sweet little girl!
