McKenna Visits the Fairy Garden

For Mother’s Day we went to my parent’s house and had brunch with the whole family. Not only was it a gorgeous day with great company, it gave me the opportunity to take some stunning photos of McKenna in my Mom’s gardens. McKenna is wearing the Flower Garden dress we gave to my niece for her birthday and she wanted McKenna to wear it while we there.

Warning – this is a long post and you will fall in love with McKenna in the process. 😉

McKenna having a conversation with one of the fairies. I wish I would have taken a close up of the little Fairy Schoolhouse to McKenna’s right. We got it for my Mom today and it has one door labeled Fairies and one door labeled Pixies.

McKenna decided to explore the rest of the garden and found this gorgeous spot for getting her photo taken over by the fountain.

McKenna wanted to climb the pedestal near the rose bush so she could get a look at the entire garden.
