Helen was having a duel themed birthday for her kids, Cyrus (4) and Isis (1). Cyrus, a huge Giants fan, had his side of the room decked out in orange and black, while Isis had the other side decorated in a Princess theme. Combining the two, one of the guests' daughters was a Giants Ballerina, tootoo and all!
An excellent clown, Mr. Funnybone, came to entertain the dozens of kids...and his balloon making skills were the best I've seen. After he finished his routine, the kids went outside to hit the pinata!
As always with a pinata, once it broke, the kids swarmed to the candy, oblivious to the possible dangers of the swinging bat! My memory and experience with a pinata (when I was around 3?) was the clay falling on my head and making me cry...I guess back then they filled them with things other than candy!? Or perhaps my parents got the cheap version :)
