Ian's Birthday Party

Saturday afternoon, my family went to a big first birthday party for my friend, Ian.  It was lots of fun!

Ian and his big brother, Preston, have some really great play equipment in their backyard.  In the 15 minutes I was back there, I munched on my first fistful of sandbox grit, practiced my climbing skills on their "climbing wall", and made sure their baby swing was in working order.
When it was time to open presents, Mr. Ian was all smiles. 
When was the last time you saw a guy this excited about vacuuming?

After Ian cleaned the rug, everyone headed back outside for a battle with the pinata.
Ian gave it all he's got...

but I was a little more hesitant.  I didn't get much closer to that colorful donkey than this.

As you can see, Ian and I needed a little help from the big kids to get the candy out of the pinata.  Not that it mattered, though...Mommy took every piece of candy out of my hands as soon as I picked it up.
(Don't worry.  Daddy promised to give me some chocolate when Mommy wasn't looking.)
