Party Recap

For my daughter's 6th birthday last year, she received McKenna, American Girl Doll of the year 2012. McKenna's background is she is a gymnast; My daughter LOVES gymnastics, so this doll and party theme were perfect for us. My husband and I were both active duty Air Force and I love red, white and blue. The American Girl logo is stars. So that is how all the ideas tie in to our party. My daughter was allowed to invite 7 friends for a small backyard party. We set up a gymnastics circuit. They also got to play with their dolls and make bookmarks with their names on them. The party went by fast and was lots of fun!
