Girls love cars too!

The day Mackenzie arrived at our house was the day after her first birthday! I gave her....
Cars! Bet you thought I would make her something girlie, didn't you? Well, as you can see, she loved them. I wish you could hear the noises she was making as she drove the little cars all around the town! Too funny.

I found this adorable panel at my local quilt shop several months ago & knew I needed to make it!
I backed the panel with lime green hippos from Ikea & attached ties, so they can roll it up sleeping bag style & stash it in the tote bag I made to match. All the little tonka plastic trucks & cars I found (at Target & Walmart) fit in the bag too.

And when Mackenzie got tired of driving the cars, she picked up the city by the ties & dragged it all over the house! Ahhhh I had forgotten how easy one year olds are to amuse!

Everyone has gone home now.... Mackenzie & her parents left Monday night & Mom & Dad left this morning. It's very very quiet here! I spent the morning machine stitching the binding on one of my quilts that Mom brought back to me. I should have it finished up by the end of the week to share with you!

Love the photos of Mackenzie. What a great gift. My DD2 loved cars too and she grow up fine.

How cute!! Amelia was (and still is) big on playing with trucks. I love that city panel. Great addition to truck/car play.
