We had a birthday party for the six-year-old today. His grandparents came, as did his aunt, uncle and cousins. The party theme was pirates (except I couldn't get a pirate cake, so I wound up getting SpongeBob). The oldest led all the little kids in endless games of Red Light, Green Light, Simon Says, Mother May I?, and Hide and Seek-- not to mention the cherished ritual of Beat the Living Heck Outta That Pinata. A good time was had by all, despite a few whiny moments on the part of the birthday boy.
