Kathy of Romance and Rust: Brookelynn loves all the Disney princesses, and especially The Little Mermaid. With her birthday falling in the summer, we were able to incorporate the backyard swimming pool for a fun mermaid swim party. We also put together a picnic setup in the backyard for the kids full of mermaid decor and special treats. Brookelynn even had a special miniature peacock chair at the head of the picnic table. The kids loved it!!
