into little groups

with others

with whom they

shared common interests. Isn’t that the way it usually happens?

“Girl, you know you got that right!”
Anyway, as the afternoon progressed, the “Birthday Princess” proved that

you can have your cake and eat it too…

Then it came time for presents.

who really liked it.
