Birthday Party Fun

On Sunday we went to a birthday party for an 8 year old friend. J was super excited to giver her a present. In fact, he carried (er...dragged) it around the house for about 30 minutes before we left.
At the party they had a jumping balloon (better known here as a "brinca brinca"). J had a GREAT time, even if he did keep falling on his face! There were several kids around but most of them were close to his size - so it wasn't too intimidating to be in the brinca brinca.
Camilla (J's friend from the office) was having fun too!

Here's a little video. Ken was helping J - being a step-in Grandpa for the day.

After a while J got a lot more confident and would make it a lot more steps before falling. Basically, he only got out for the brinca brinca for a cumulative total of 30 minutes during the whole 3 1/2 hours we were there. Boy did he sleep good that night!

Then, Chris helped J hit the pinata - his first time! He seemed really into it until everyone started singing, then he got a bit distracted!

After the pinata was broken Erin and Chris had to wear part of it!
