A Bolivian Birthday Party

After chores today . . . 

. . . we headed to our friend Ketty's house to celebrate her birthday.

Anna got her face painted . . .

. . . then it was pinata time!  Ketty's mom is from Bolivia, and apparently you don't smash Bolivian pinatas open.  Instead, each child grabs a dangling ribbon and pulls on it, and one of the ribbons opens a trap door that lets all the candy spill out.

As Joy can tell you, there are definite benefits to being tall.  She got a ton of candy, which she kindly shared with her younger siblings (Daniel says he has an awesome big sister).

Rainbow Girl had a lot of loot to take home.  I think she was most excited about the pink balloon.
