We celebrated Az's oldest cousin Manny's 18th birthday today at a park near his house. I'm of course always nervous of any events that take place at a park and require me to keep both of my kids unmaimed given one of their penchants for getting maimed at parks, but thanks to a jump house that held his attention and kept him away from the playground everything went well. When we first arrived a boy much younger than Z ended up hauling off and punching him while they were in front of the jump house. I allowed myself a huge internal groan and went to check it out. I imagined an afternoon of trying to keep Z away from the jump house and the the boy but fortunately it turned out the boy wasn't with the party and after punching Z he ran off and didn't bother to return.
Being the youngest mobile member of the family, Az got first swing at the piñata. I didn't let her gather any of the candy but she was the one to get the remains of the piñata so she was a winner in her own eyes.
