A week ago, McKinley's best friend, Caty, texted me and asked if she could throw McKinley a surprise birthday party on her birthday. The girls had been challenged by their Young Women leaders to do a 10 hour project for Individual Worth and she thought it would make a great project to plan a fun party for her!
She invited 14 fun friends to join in on the surprise.
I wish I would have taken the time to take a picture of the cute chocolate fountain and home made cupcakes she made. She had blown up about 20 balloons and when McKinley walked in to the house they jumped out and showered her with shredded paper.
Then they went swimming. Yes, in November and NO, they had not heated the pool.

and Kylie P who had celebrated her birthday with a party the night before.
What a lucky young lady to be surrounded by so many sweet girls and to have one especially thoughtful friend.
