Saints Game & a 1st Birthday

Our niece, Mackenzy turned one on friday and we celebrated her first birthday this weekend with a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday party.  She is such a sweetheart.  She is the reason why I'm a firm believer that nieces and nephews are the greatest thing for people like me.  I'm still young, too young to have children, but I do love other people's children. 

For her birthday party, her mother got her a cake that she could stick her fingers into.  Apparently, Kenzy is a clean baby because she seemed to get offended and upset when her father got frosting all over her hands.  

Every gift that came out of a giftbag was Mickey Mouse, so Uncle Justin and I took a different approach.  We bought her all turtle themed presents because she seems to have an obsession with them.

The other gift we found was more from Uncle Justin.  A black hoodie that said rock and roll on the front.  She seemed to get right into character when she put it on, because she made the "justin face".  

On another note, we went to a Saints game this weekend, which I haven't done in a long time and Justin has never done.  Bill Murray knows how to make baseball fun.  It was the night of the nerd pride parade.  The nachos are HUGE and a great price of $4.00 and beer was flowing, also for a good price.  We made friends with the 5 year old behind us who was teaching us new cheers.

I'm hoping that with the new Target Field being built next year, it will feel more like the saints game.  I love the outdoor old-school baseball feel, like Fenway Park.
