Three-Year Birthday Celebration

Saturday afternoon Bob and I attended our great niece’s third birthday celebration.  Elise’s birthday party was held at her maternal grandparents’ house from 2:00 pm through 8:00 pm.  The party was well attended by family members, for the most part.

This is Elise, the birthday girl.  When I took this picture, Elise’s mother (our niece) was holding her, and Elise was looking back at me.  As soon as I took this picture, Elise became shy.  She laid her head on her mom’s shoulder and looked away from me.

It was a 2-hour drive for Bob and me to attend the party.  Thankfully the weather cooperated, and we didn’t see any wintery precipitation during our drive there and back home.  We arrived shortly before 2:00 pm and stayed for a couple hours.

Happy birthday Elise!  Uncle Bob and I are happy that we were able to celebrate your birthday with you!
