July 16th Saturday: Birthday party number two

Saturday brought just enough sun that we were able to get out the pools as planned. The girls had fun, and once again Charlotte was spoiled! She was feeling better for this party and I think she enjoyed herself quite a bit. (For Thursdays party she was quite tired and was happy to cuddle on her daddies lap most of the day.) It was quite the princess party, I think we had 12 bathing beauties running around the yard and three baby siblings playing at the sidelines.
Three kiddie pools and the slide was the main entertainment.
 These three girls, Chloe, Charlotte and Macky... East Kootenay girls who met each other during stays at Ronald McDonald House in Calgary. I could definitely tell that out of the crowd these three had something in common. They were all very sure of, and asserted their princess status. I think that having cancer and being at the centre of everyones attention for so long... makes them, Im not sure how to say it, egocentric maybe?  Its not that they are any more demanding than the average kid, its just that when they have a need they are quite assuming that it will be taken care of swiftly.... and if its not you get a dumb look that says, "what do you mean, no?" Three sweet little girls who have all been through way too much.

 Charlotte is checking out her new little cousin Lena(or maybe just her toys!) We were glad to have my cousins family here who were visiting from Germany.
 Check out this cake! Chloes mom, Lecara, made Charlotte a fancy birthday cake last year while we were all at RMH, and when she asked if she could bring one this year I was excited! Well its not so much of a cake as a work of art, the kids loved it! (and the adults did too)

 I dont think we even got all the girls in on this picture! It was a very fun day, we sure appreciated everyone who helped out!
