The Saturday before my birthday we had a little get together with friends in a the park. I decided on a fiesta theme for four reasons:
1. It was only three days after Cinco de Mayo.
2. Picado papel is my current garland of choice.
3. I recently decided that I needed more yellow and turquoise in my life.
4. It had been entirely too long since I tried to break open a pinata. And yes, I was the only adult who gave it a try.
Although the weather didn’t cooperate for long there was enough time for scarfing down churros, hacking away at the 2 and 5 pinatas and a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday. Much to Ryan’s dismay, I think a yearly birthday party is now a requirement.
