Life is a festival only to the wise.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sunday was our June pool party - we have these parties once a month every year, starting in May and going through September.
This month we had 22 people (mostly kids), celebrated two June birthdays (a 9 year old boy, who selected Sonic the Hedgehog as his theme and an 8 year old girl, who selected Hello Kitty as her theme) and, as always, the kids demonstrated their wisdom by thoroughly enjoying every moment of the festival!
Although, sometimes, there were traffic jams! ;)
I buy paper plates and cups in the birthday themes - and my husband grills pounds of hamburgers and hot dogs!
It was this little guy's first time at one of our pool parties - and he was fascinated by the older children and all their activity.
The day ended with a piñata, and let me just say that you don't want to run into some of these children armed with baseball bats in a dark alley - they have some wicked swings! ;)
But the Pampers box (disguised in colored tissue paper) withstood an amazing amount of abuse before it crumpled and fell to the ground.
This has never happened before - when the piñata came down, one of the kids grabbed it and started running! (I'm not sure where he thought he was going...)
In the end, there was candy for all. :)
I believe that next month's theme is supposed to be Hawaii - so you may get to see some grass skirts and belly dancing! ;)
