birthday party

Right after Kara's ballet, we hurried over to Dash Point beach for a birthday party for the girls' friend, Mathias. I didn't take the camera out to the beach, but they had fun playing in the water for a bit. But we mostly stayed in the grassy, picnic area. Kiersten wanted to eat some of everything.

Kiersten loved playing with this toy with Daddy.
After a yummy dinner, there was a piñata. All the kids were anxious for their turn.

The kids couldn't break it, so Ben got a turn. He took it down in one swipe, and I wasn't fast enough to get a picture. That thing really went flying, though.
All the kids getting candy. Kiersten was hesitant to get in the fray, but did end up with a few little handfuls.

It was a busy and fun day. We were glad to have sunday to relax and recover, though. We stayed home most of the day, with only a short trip to Dairy Queen for some ice cream.

It looks like that was a really fun and yummy family birthday party. It was for a friend of Kara's?
