Oh my goodness what a fun afternoon! Jacob invited a few friends over to celebrate his birthday with him. Our clown, aka Kelly, made balloon animals. He actually did a pretty good job considering it was his first time. We also played kid party games. We had a blast.
I had to post this picture because of the funny story that goes along with our pinata fun. The story goes like this: The kids have all had a couple of chances to whack at the pinata and it is a solid structure. The kids finally break through it with much force when my sweet neighbor informs us that the strings hanging from Spiderman are "pull strings" and each kid is supposed to grab a string; and one lucky kid has the string that actually opens the pinata. What the heck? I have never heard of such craziness! What ever happen to the good old fashioned kid games like hitting the pinata 'till all the candy flies all over the house and you are dodging them like bullets as they fly toward your face. Everything is so safe these days. I see why a lot of safety precautions are put in place, but come on. Someone tell me that they still make the "whacking" pinata!
Okay, so moving on we ate homemade Spiderman cupcakes and opened gifts. Jacob had a great time opening his presents. What kid doesn't enjoy new toys and games? He received some very fun and thoughtful gifts. Thanks to all! Look at that smile. It is very hard to capture a true smile from Jacob.
It was a very fun day. We're glad that many of our friends and family could join us. Jacob is one year older and wiser too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! We love you son. --Love, Mom
